Quick & Easy Starfish
Pencil with Eraser
Cut out 5 Starfish Arms. Kindergarten children should be able to do this if you draw a line for them to follow. The arms do not need to be exact or symmetrical so this is a good early cutting project.
Arrange arms by overlapping them. Glue in place. Dry.
Dip eraser end in paint and stamp dots all over your starfish.
Lu wanted to put the number 5 in the center because a starfish has 5 arms.
For extra dimension we punched small holes all over the starfish.
EDIT: A Touch Of Country made an excellent suggestion on the comments page. She did a similar project with her students and had them glue oatmeal to the Starfish. I think sand would also work well - although you would have to glue starfish to a piece of cardboard since sand can be heavy.
Have fun crafting with your kids! Mama King
