I loved the way this Juneteenth flag painting turned out. It’s such a simple craft for the little ones and older children will enjoy making it too. This activity can get a little messy so place a plastic tablecloth or recycled newspaper on the table. I also keep wet wipes nearby because my toddler is not a fan of paint on his hands.
