Our poor house looked rather unpatriotic, so the girls and I did a little "easy batiking" to help improve the view. I sewed the flag out of some scrap material, and then used gel glue and watered down acrylic paint to decorate it. You can get full directions for how to batik with kids here.
Now we are off to enjoy my mother's fabulous home...
And a much nicer view!
Have a wonderful 4th of July!
