Celebrate Philippine Independence Day with these easy to make flag handprints!
Maligayang Araw ng Kalayaan!
In commemoration of the 124th Philippine Independence Day, we engaged in a meaningful activity by creating simple handprint flags reminiscent of the Philippine flag. Given that my kids are of Filipino heritage, it remains a priority for me to immerse them in the rich tapestry of Philippine culture and traditions. This hands-on approach not only celebrates the significance of Independence Day but also becomes a cherished way to instill a sense of connection and appreciation for their Filipino roots.
These handprint flags, aside from being a delightful craft, can also double as a vibrant banner for Independence Day decorations. Whether you find yourself far from home or simply wish to infuse your space with a touch of the Philippines, this DIY banner serves as a heartfelt reminder of the celebratory spirit. It’s a creative way to bridge the distance and foster a sense of connection to your Filipino heritage, making any space feel a bit more like home.
How to create a Philippine flag print art:
