4th of july craftin'

We couldn't let the 4th come and go without a little craft project! I saw this fun idea and decided to give it a try.

Intrigued by her crazy painted hand.
Time to press!
Showing off the mess! Who knew the cupcake holder made such a fabulous drying rack?! ;) Checking out the "flag"...
"but Mama, it doesn't really look like our flag"
Kids - gotta love them! Admiring her handprint
We couldn't find any stars in our craft supplies so we'll have to add those after a trip to Michael's this week...maybe after that it will look more like a "flag" ;) We made enough that I think we can make them into a garland of some sort - we'll see!
If not, they'll be cute at each place setting on our 4th of July table.

The messier the paint = the funner the craft!

What a fun idea!! Reese loved finger paints when she tried them for the first time....one thing I told people she would love for a bday gift (I might regret that..hehe)

LOVE Grace's outfit!!! Such fun. Sadly, I realized the other day Reese didn't have any red, white and blue for the 4th. But since Lee is working all weekend and neither family is doing anything, I guess it is ok...we decided to hang out at Soak City (a water park) all day :)
