Star Design


Create a picture using the stars and stripes as basic elements.

Ask your child to draw stars and stripes on a white piece of construction paper using blue and red crayons. Don't worry about replicating the American flag — he can create any design he wants. Using alternating colors, outline each shape several times, and color in any blank spots with red or blue crayon. You'll end up with a unique patriotic picture that will look great displayed in your home.
