This is a fun hands on activity for young children particularly those with an interest in sea life. My 3 year old son had been asking me to help him make a starfish ever since we saw one at the beach, so this was a perfect craft for him.
: 15 minutes in total (but you also need to allow a few hours drying time after you have painted the starfish). This is a craft in two parts.
: Under 5's
Gather your supplies
Hint: Have some wet wipes on hand as little hands invariably get a bit messy picking up the starfish to turn it over to paint both sides.
Give the starfish a personality
Leave to dry
Extra optional step: If you'd like to hang the starfish, an adult could easily grab and needle and thread to push through the starfish to create a hook. The starfish could then adorn a door knob, a picture hook, even a Christmas tree.
