Sweet Starfish

We made some sweet starfish today! They turned out really cute! Pictures tomorrow. ;)

I found the idea in one of the Best of Mail Box magazine books. 1st you'll need a starfish pattern. My kids traced their starfish on yellow paper. Then you mix up sugar and water to make a paste. Add some food coloring, we did red, and then have them paint it on their starfish. We painted with q-tips. We are doing LOTS of things this week to get ready for Beach Day and Open House.

The sugar mixture, when dried, looks like crystals. The kids were licking their fingers after this craft!;)
