I know I have mentioned on more than one occasion that I LOVE handprint art.
Our Lil’s are only little for so long and I want all the memories and crafts that remind me of just how little they are.
This handprint art activity is in honor of the Winter Olympics in South Korea.
We will be making the Olympic Flag with our handprint art.
Did you know:
The Olympic flag has 5 rings to represent the 5 continents and the 6 colors (blue, black, red, yellow, green, and white) are the colors on all the national flags at the time (1931).
