4th of July Star Painting Craft

Have your children use star cookie cutters and paint to make placemats for your 4th of July BBQ/picnic!!


star-shaped cookie cutters (various sizes are fun!)

red and blue paint

white paper (if doing placemats, I recommend the long paper you can find at teacher supply stores)


1. Have your children dip the cookie cutters into paint.

2. Press the cookie cutters on the paper like a stamp.

3. Repeat until satisfied.

4. Let dry.

5. To turn into placemats, laminate!

Aren’t they cute?!
