The Fourth of July is quickly approaching. I definitely wanted to give you some ideas for making this holiday special.

I made a printable for you so it would be really simple. I printed it out onto stock paper.

How to Make American Flag Craft with Do-A-Dot Paints
I’m pretty sure this do-a-dot American flag craft is pretty self-explanatory, but I have a video tutorial just in case you have any questions.
Corban (age 2) actually did better than I thought he would. He started out really staying in the lines then started to do his own thing a bit. Then, Kenzie came along side and wanted to help point out where to put the dot.
Kenzie (age 4) did pretty well on her own. She could stay in her lines when focused, but she’d sometimes start to veer as her attention waned. She did really well though and did enjoy the process.
Abby (age 5) enjoyed this craft too. It seemed right up her alley.
This would be a very simple craft to have available at your Fourth of July party. Just print out a bunch of these onto stock paper, make an example and set out the paints. Easy set up and easy clean up…perfect for a party.
