Okay, today I'm going to do a craft that you can do with children and age really, K through 5th grade or even younger and maybe even older kids too, it's a, it's a project that involves nursery rhymes and using nursery rhymes and the nursery rhyme that I picked is Twinkle Twinkly Little Star. Okay, what you need is basically for this because it's Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, it's golden and I'm thinking shiny stuff, so you might want to get some paint, actually this paint could be yellow if you're using glitter, but I just happen to have gold paint, so you can get some gold paint and some glitter and then you're going to be using a sponge and this is sort of like print making again. I did not have a star sponge so what I did and this is what you can do, I went to the Internet and I got, you know just looked up star patterns or what ever and then of course I just cut the star out of the paper and here you have it and then I just used the star to put of top of the sponge, I traced around it and then I of course I cut it out and then I have my stamp or sponge, that I'm going to be using. Okay, there's two ways that you can do this, you're going to be covering this star with paint, so there's two ways you can do it, I'll use a sponge brush this time sense a lot of people like to use this, you can spread the paint out and dip the star in to it or you can just take a brush and paint the surface of the star with paint. Okay, so now after I cover it I'm just going to decide where I want the stars to be in the sky, of course you just put this here and you gently press, but you make sure that you press every where, all the way to the ends and sometimes it doesn't matter, if it's got, I like the texture that's being made with it on the surface, so then you can do a few more, you can really just sort of experiment with it, but while it's still wet, you can even go back in to it, honestly and you can just touch it up, with a paint brush if you want, but while it's wet sometimes I'll go in and add a little glitter, you just sprinkle the glitter right on top. And then you know the kids can just go crazy with this, they could just put stars everywhere, they might even want to add the words for the nursery rhyme over here as well and then also you know, if you have other things like little stencils you could use those to and put those down and you know, dab around them and try something different. It's just fun. And I'm not sure what will happen with this, let's see. So you can make, oh those cute. So, they can just sprinkle a little glitter on it while it's wet and then, this is just the beginning of course they can do much more with this, but then you could talk about stars too and, and, and bring some science in to it as well. So, print making, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
