American Flag Easel Painting

As part of the Introduction to US Geography for Little Kids series, today I shared an art activity on the Melissa & Doug blog: American Flag Easel Painting.  My 5 year old LOVED this activity!  It’s a great way to squeeze in lots of learning in a way that will keep kids’ attention!  You just might end up with a frame-worthy painting from your little artist when it’s all done, too!

I didn’t mention it, but this easel activity is also great for fine motor skills practice, developing concentration, paying attention to details, following directions, and as a pre-writing activity, building those hand and arm muscles for future writing activities!
