Tori posted this DIY flag shirt tutorial on her blog the other day and I loved it from the start; I knew my craft loving minis would want to do this project.

Here’s what you’ll need (all purchased from hobby lobby)…

Make sure you have a big flat workspace.

Start by painting your child’s entire palm blue. Make sure you apply a generous amount!

Then have your child make a hand print on the upper left corner of the shirt for the start of your flag.

* Tip * help them press their fingers and palm fully down to ensure you get a great full hand print

Using your paintbrushes and white paint, start painting your stripes.

Finally, dot in some white “stars” on your blue handprint.

My minis are very proud of their work and excited that they get to wear a creation of their own! Mini man even said he wants to write “Rayne 4th of July 2013” on the back of his and keep it forever!

We might even paint a few fireworks on it!

Happy 4th!!!
