Are you looking for a fun 4th of July Craft that can also serve as a keepsake for your child? Look no further!

What you need:

  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Black marker
  • Red, white and blue construction paper

What to do:

  1. With the pencil, trace your child’s hand onto a piece of the construction paper and cut out.  You now have a template to use instead of having to trace your child’s hand 9 separate times!
  2. Using the template, trace and cut out 9 total handprints: 3 red, 3 white and 3 blue.
  3. Using the glue, place a small dab onto the back of a red hand print and place  the red hand print onto a white hand print.  Press down firmly for about 5 seconds.
  4. Adding onto the wreath, now glue a blue handprint and hold down firmly for 5 seconds.
  5. Continue gluing down the handprints in the red, white and blue pattern until all 9 handprints have been glued into place.
  6. Allow the Handprint wreath to dry for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Using the black marker, write the date of completion onto the back of the wreath.
  8. After using this Patriotic Handprint Wreath as a decoration, it can then serve as a keepsake item for you and your child.

Happy Learning!
