How to get paint out of carpet?

My daughter loves doing crafts, which is great! What is not so great is when she gets red paint on the carpet. And then doesn't tell me. SIGH.

I need help. How do I get this out? Am I going to just have to get new carpet?

    What type of paint?

    One trick that works pretty seamlessly that I found for a messed up bit of carpet in our old apartment.... Cut a square around the messed up spot on the carpet and remove it. Go to the corner of a carpeted closet and cut out a square the same size. Hot glue gun it down. After it cools and you fluff it back up, you can't even really tell.
