    First, we stacked our sticks in a star shape, adding a dot of tacky glue with each stick.

    Next, we used some more tacky glue to add ribbon to the back of the star shape. This creates the look of a shooting firework. The kids loved this part.

    Once they were dry we added some color. My two-year-old loves using dot painters. They are easy for him to use and we have a set that smells really yummy!
