Making Christmas stars (for a wall or a tree)

You will need:
  • A printer and white paper to print out star(s)
  • Scissor
  • Glue stick
  • Card board (any, e.g. cereal box)
  • Crayons or koki's
  • Punch
  • Wool (red and green)
  • Optional: beads [see first star in picture above]

Step 1: Google "coloring page star" on Google Images


You will now see this: 

Step 2: Choose a star pic that you like (without copyright) and print it. 

Step 3: Cut out the star. [If child is too young mommy must do it.]

Step 4: Put glue on WHOLE star (everywhere)

Step 5: Paste the star on the "ugly side" of a cereal box. Make sure to flatten the star so that there are no air bubbles.

Step 6: Cut out star.

It will now look like this:
                                               Front                                                   Back
It you can still see letters or pics from cereal bow through white paper - it's okay.

Step 7: Colour in

Step 8: Take a punch and make two holes in the one "arm" of the star

Step 9: Tie a piece of red wool around TWO arm of the stars and make a knot

Step 10: Wind the wool 3 or 4 times around those two arms

Step 11: Move 1 arm back and repeat process (wind wool 3 or 4 times around TWO arms)
