Red, White, and Blue Kids’ Crafts for Memorial Day
Are you looking for a red, white, and blue Memorial Day art activity? Your kiddos crave crafting—and that means you’re always on the hunt for new project ideas. As the holiday approaches, check out these easy artsy ideas!
Red, White, and Blue Finger Paint
This project is perfect for toddlers and young preschoolers. Not only will your kiddo enjoy the art aspect of this activity, it can also help them to build their fine motor skills. Start with small pools or red, white, and blue tempera or finger paint. Pour the paint onto paper plates or thick cardboard. Let your little one explore and experiment, dipping their fingers and hands into the paint and pressing them onto a piece of white construction paper.
Red, White, and Blue Collage
Tear pieces of red, white, and blue construction and tissue paper into small shapes. Your child can choose to make geometric shapes such as triangles and rectangles or tear free-form shapes. Pour a shallow pool of clear-drying school glue into a paper bowl or on a piece of scrap cardboard. Use a paintbrush to coat a piece of card stock paper with the glue. Press the paper onto the glue, overlapping the edges. Continue adding to the collage until your child covers most of the paper. Add more glue as needed.
Red, White, and Blue Drawing
This is an easy, low-mess artsy option. Give your child red, white, and blue chalk and a piece of black poster board or card stock paper. Your creative kid can draw swirls, zig-zags, fireworks, or anything else they want with the patriotic colors of chalk!
