How To Catch A Star Printing

We have had lots of fun using different techniques to paint stars to celebrate the 10th anniversary of How to Catch a Star.

On paper plates (to save on washing up!) I poured some paint. We stuck to two different shades of blue and some white. To the paint I added some glitter to give it a bit of sparkle, though in hindsight it needed a lot more!


We used our star shaped play dough cutter as a stamp, dipping it into the sparkly paint and pressing it onto the paper. They looked fab!


We painted some of them and cut them out.


Harrison then decided he just wanted to do his own thing with the paint and black paper – who am I to stop him?


Whilst we had the glittery paint out we decorated some foam stars that we have had in our art cupboard since before Christmas.


I think these will make some sort of ‘How To Catch A Star’ hanging decoration for the playroom.

    1. We have millions of playdough and cookie cutters, but I think we use them more for painting than anything else!

  1. We use cookie and play dough cutters for printing more than we do anything else!

  2. I like these ideas, especially the cookie cutter painting! The black paper art looks good too. #LetKidsBeKids
