Next, your children will pour a little bit of red, white, and blue paint onto the paper. For this project, we created dots around the paper with the paint.

Then, your kids will place a decorative foam star on each paint dot. After adding the paper, paint and stars, zip the bag closed. You may want to add a piece of tape around the top of bag so the paint doesn’t squeeze out the top.

For this process art activity, I like to use white card stock instead of paper because the paint won’t soak through the thicker paper. You can also use a canvas and create a special keepsake!
