A quick and easy 4th of July craft from the Fountaindale Public Library. I didn't have my camera with me but I will explain what you need and how to do it.
Uncle Sam Mask
a paper plate
white construction paper
strip of blue construction paper
white batting or cotton ball
stapler or tape
Cut the center part out of a paper plate. Glue cotton batting/ball to the bottom. Color red stripes on the white construction paper(or all red or scribbles). Draw white stars on the blue strip of paper. Glue the blue strip to the bottom of the white paper. Attach a thin piece of costruction paper to both sides of the "hat" to make it sit comfortably on the child's head.
All done. Wear on your errands and get funny looks and salutes at the local Target store!
