Happy Flag Day!

In honor of Flag Day--and as our own prep for the coming 4th of July holiday--we found a fantastic project for you and the kiddos, courtesy of Skip to My Lou. I never do anything quite put-together enough for the centerpiece, though I might have to this year because it is so adorable! However, we do love to make home made pinwheels and Skip to My Lou provides pdf instructions for three different sizes. They are fun and festive and you can use them in all sizes to decorate your backyard or beach BBQ. Or you can make little 4 or 6 inch versions as cake or pie decor. And of course they are an ideal, safe alternative to sparklers for your tiny tots.

Once you clean up the project mess, gather your girls and your Hopscotch Kids WaterColors. Our Ink a Bink a Bottle of Ink and Red Rover Red Rover will give your fingers and toes a little patriotic flair. Paint nails one color and toes the other, or alternate one red, one blue. If you're feeling really creative you could do red nails with blue dots (or stripes) or vice versa... the possibilites are endless!
Be sure to order the Twin Pack and we'll include a free buffer.
