Red White and Blue Process Art

We’re seeing red, white, and blue everywhere we go, and Tinker has been especially fascinated with learning how to make stars. One afternoon I set up a simple process art activity to help her practice making her own stars before diving in to create her own red white and blue masterpiece for the Fourth of July.
