1. Using scissors, cut starfish shapes out of the sponges. Talk to your children
   about sea stars, where they live, what they eat and what they look like. Talk
   about what you eat (strawberries, blueberries, etc.) and show them the
   baskets they are packed in.
2. Put on an apron and fill each pie pan with a different color of paint.
3. Show your children how to dip the sponge and bottom of the basket into the    paint and stamp them onto the paper. Cover the page with star and net designs.
4. Allow paintings to dry and display them for your children to see!
