Let’s Make Clothespin Flags

This is one of those great projects that really is as easy as it looks! 

You will need:

  • clothes pins
  • white paint
  • red paint
  • blue paint
  • paint brushes (1 wide and 1 fine for each child)

Begin by painting the blue background and then the white background with the wider brush.

With the fine brush, dot the stars on the blue field. Then finish by using the fine brush to paint on the red stripes. Then let the clothes pins dry. That’s it! If you want to be really fancy, glue a small magnet on the bare, unpainted side of the clothes pin; now you have a decoration for your refrigerator that can hold small notes and pictures!
