What you'll need:
- Red and blue paint (acrylic or tempera)
- White paper
- Patriotic shaped cookie cutters
What to do:
To prevent a mess, cover your table with some paper first. Then, squirt the paint onto a cookie sheet, and supply the cookie cutters. I used some stars I had. I have a Christmas bell that I also offered my daughter (for the whole "Let Freedom Ring" thing). Show the kids how to dip the cookie cutters into the paint and "stamp" the shapes on the paper.
My daughter had a blast, and the final product turned out really cute!
