Removing Paint From Carpet

My daughter spilled a large puddle of paint on the carpet. Does anyone know of anything we can do to remove it? It has dried now.

Depends on if its latex or oil base, also the carpet color. If its oil based then peel as much up as you can then use mineral spirits and a clean white cotton cloth. If its latex hot water and laundry detergent with a stiff brush then blot with dry cloth and repeat also vinegar works wonders.
