Luke LOVES to paint. Of course, Luke painting means everything in the near vicinity of him is liable to get paint on it. So when I needed to make a quick shirt for a TV segment I called up one of my neighbors who has the sweetest little girl to help me out! It’s the easiest craft to do and lots of fun for kids! Have a happy 4th of July! Paint your child’s hand with the blue paint making sure the entire palm and bottom of fingers are covered. Then press their hand on the upper left chest area of the shirt. Be sure to check that all areas of the hand press down on the shirt to get a good hand print. Now paint stripes on with the red paint on the right side of the blue hand print and a few directly underneath. Now your child has a cute outfit for the 4th and they had lots of fun making it!
