4th of July Handprint Flag

by | Jul 5, 2016 | Art, Crafts, July 4th | 2 comments

This 4th of July Handprint Flag made such a fun and easy craft to celebrate Independence Day!
I pulled out some red and blue tempera paint and white card stock, showed the little ones how to paint one hand with the paint, and then let the older girls take over helping them with the art project while I got back to work in the kitchen.
He ran back to his bedroom to bring out his copy of Our Flag so he could count the red stripes and make sure he painted the correct number.
A certain little Texas lovin’ boy wanted to:
 “make a TEXAS FLAG too, because my Godmudder and Godfadder live in Texas!!!” 
Even the big kids couldn’t resist joining the finger painting fun. The white card stock wasn’t quite big enough for their 4th of July Handprint flag. They used 12″x18″ white construction paper.
🎶You’re a grand old flag, You’re a high flying flag, And forever in peace may you wave.🎶
Happy Independence Day!

    What a great idea! You could do this for a lot of different holidays, like Memorial Day too.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
