Step 1
Give each child a square of sandpaper,
and let them decorate it with oil pastels.  
You don't need to press very hard because
the paper is pretty gritty.
Step 2
Make sure you use lots of different colors,
and spread them out a bit over the
square.  The more variety you put into it,
the more dazzling your starfish will be.
Step 3
Cut out a starfish shape from the paper.  
Save the scraps to cut little circles and other
shapes for your creation.
Step 4
Arrange your starfish, and glue it to a sheet
of black construction paper.  Cut out a wavy
shape from your white paper and glue it on
the side.
All Done!
Use the space to write all about Starfish, or
even a little poem.  We used ours to think of
an adjective for each letter in the word
Starfish.
