Saturday Kinder Fourth of July Craft

Happy Fourth of July from our Saturday Kinder class! Today, they made their own red, white, and blue shaker. Let’s see how they made it! First each child got two paper cups. One cup is blue and one cup is red with stripes. Just like the colors of the flag! Next they glue on cute stars onto the blue cup. Do you think they can fit 50? Finally all they have to do is let the paint dry and fill it in with beans. Once you tape the two cups together, everyone can SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE! Everyone’s flag shakers looks so good!! Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!
