Directions

  1. First, create a baking soda paint by mixing 2 tbsp of baking soda with 5 drops of food coloring. You will need one that is red and one that is blue. Mix to form a wet paste. You can add a few drops of water to get the right consistency.
  2. Next, use a pencil to draw an arc in the middle of the white cardstock.
  3. Now it’s time to start painting your Juneteenth flag. Blue paint belongs at the top and red paint belongs at the bottom. I suggest placing the cardstock on a tray to contain the mess of this art project.
  4. Add white distilled vinegar to the jumbo dropper then squirt the Juneteenth flag to create a cool chemical reaction. Don’t get carried away with the vinegar or it will take longer for the craft to dry. Just add a few drops throughout the painting. Once you are finished, set it aside to dry. This may take 4-6 hours.
  5. Finally, download and cut out the star and burst template. Use glue to apply the burst in the middle of the flag then add the star. See pictures below for example.
