You will need:

  • Paint, preferably finger paint or one that easily washes off in black, blue, white and yellow
  • Black craft paper (you can also use white)



  1. Download and print the image of The Starry Night painting by Vincent Van Gogh
  2. Prepare the paint by putting it on a paint mixing palette plate or just an ordinary plate
  3. Find the nursery rhyme, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and play it
  4. Show the children the image of The Starry Night and ask them to paint it with their fingers while singing along to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!
  5. Once the children have finished the craft, you can introduce them to Vincent Van Gogh and his other paintings.

Van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, including landscapes, still lives, portraits and self-portraits.

His most famous paintings are The Starry Night, Sunflowers, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, Wheatfield with Cypresses, The Potato Eaters and Irises.

Here’s how our painting came out! We’d love to see the paintings that the children in your setting make!
