Mini Uncle Sam Hats made from Dixie Cups 4th of July craft

 

The Fourth Of July is just a few weeks away. It is time to break out our red, white & blue paints & paper and begin our patriotic crafting. We decided to make Uncle Sam hats today. I told Mai a brief story about The 4th of July & showed her a picture of Uncle Sam with his hat.

Mai is still operating with one hand, but still wanted to try to paint a little.

 

What you will need:

Dixie cups

Acrylic paint

Construction paper or foam

Elmers glue or Hot glue (adults operate)

 

Directions:

Paint the Dixie cups in white & let them dry.
