White paper (for the stars)

What you do

  1. Take your start whole punch and punch out lots of little stars
  2. Take a piece of construction paper (light blue will work, too)
  3. Paint the palm of your hand blue
  4. Paint your fingers alternating with white and red
  5. Make your handprint
  6. Wash your hands
