If you want, you can choose a single color for the star or go with multiple shades. Choose ones that look bright on canvas. Children would need rulers for getting the straight lines perfectly. Note that the pointed tips of the arms of the star are all placed at equal distances on the circular guide. Kiddos might need a bit of practice before they get the shape correctly.
