Red, White and Blue Memorial Day Art for Preschoolers
Celebrate Memorial Day with a red, white and blue kids’ craft. Along with making fabulously artsy flags, your kiddo can get crafty (and patriotic) with these easy art activities for preschoolers!
What do you need for this easy art exploration? It’s simple! Pour your child a pool of red tempera paint, another of blue and a third of white. Instead of a pricey palette, reuse the side of a cardboard box or a paper plate. After pouring the paint your child can dip their fingertips into the tempera, creating a patriotic masterpieces of card stock or construction paper.
Give your child red, white and silver or opal (as white) glitter and clear-drying school glue. Your artsy kiddo can paint a design onto construction paper with the glue. Before it dries, help your child to sprinkle the sparkles over the glue. Shake off the excess to reveal the design underneath—in red, white and blue!
Create a flag using red, white and blue modeling clay. Start with a drawing. Have your child outline the flag (stripes and star areas) on a piece of cardboard. Pull the clay apart into small (dime-sized) pieces. Your child can press the clay onto the cardboard, spreading it out by using a finger painting type of motion. Continue until the entire flag is filled in.
