- White Pillowcase
- Red, White, and Blue Acrylic Paint

- Dowel Stick
- Wooden Star
First, Alyssa and I used the yard stick to draw 13 stripes and a blue rectangle in the corner. Alyssa painted the blue rectangle in the left-hand corner first and let it dry completely (upside-down in the photo). Then, she painted the red stripes over a two-day time period. We didn't paint the white stripes because the pillowcase was white.
I placed a glue dot at the end of a dowel and wooden star to create a star stamp. This tool was used to stamp or paint the white stars on the flag. Thirteen wooden stars were used as placers. Alyssa organized the wooden stars in a circle in the center of the blue rectangular field. She took one star off at a time as she stamped the white painted stars. This helped her evenly space out the stars on her flag.
I will link this post up at the Virtual Refrigerator. The theme for May is flowers, but you are free to join and add any art post.
