Directions

  1. First, add drops of paint randomly on white cardstock. Your child can make a pattern with the drops of paint or place them anywhere on the paper.
  2. Next, gently lay plastic wrap on top of the paint and press with your hands to spread out the paint. You can use a paintbrush to gently smooth out any large globs of paint that remain.
  3. Carefully peel back the plastic wrap, and let your artwork dry for at least 3-4 hours, overnight or in the sun.
  4. While the paint is drying, download the free Juneteenth template then cut. If you have a Cricut, find your favorite Juneteenth image then cut on black cardstock.
  5. Finally, glue your favorite Juneteenth image in the middle of the painted cardstock.

  1. Where are the Juneteenth templates? I see them in the pictures but I can’t find a link anywhere to click and get the templates. I don’t have a cricut so I would really love the template for my kiddos to cut out.
