How To Make A Masking Tape Resist Star of Bethlehem
- For younger children, it may be useful to use some of the masking tape and secure the paper to the work surface – this stops it from sliding around and makes it easier for your baby/toddler to paint. Luke was 16 months old when we first made this craft. It may also be worth laying down a messy mat first.
- Using the masking tape, mark out the shape of a star on the paper.
- Get painting. Cover as much of the paper as you wish, but make sure you cover each side of the masking tape, otherwise the shape won’t show up properly.
- Leave to dry for a few hours, then carefully peel off the masking tape, being careful not to rip the paper.
Luke was a little hesitant at first, but soon got stuck in and used his fingers, hands and feet to paint with. This led to a big old bubbly bath that went very blue, very quickly!
We made a star this time, but other Christmas themed shapes you could try are:
- snow flakes
- ginger bread houses
- Christmas trees
