The easiest crafts are often the most fun to do, especially when there's glitter.
A biodegradable glitter is recommended for kids crafts. Look for this online or in craft stores. Plastic glitter is not environmentally friendly and takes years to decompose. You can also substitute glitter with other decorations such paper confetti.
Toddlers and preschoolers will love making these shiny star ornaments to decorate the tree or give as gifts to friends and family members.
Sparkling star craft
Kids can dive into this activity with few instructions. Simply set out the star shapes, a glue stick and glitter and let the creativity begin.
The results are so beautiful kids will want to make stars for everyone!
Cut star shapes from glitter foam sheets, or regular foam sheets. You can also use pre-cut foam star shapes.
If you don't have a star shape template in your toolkit, look for a star image on a greeting card, wrapping paper or store flyer. You can also use a star shaped cookie cutter. Or you and the kids can draw them!
Provide pre-cut star shapes for younger children. Older kids can trace, or draw, then cut out the shapes.
Spread glue on the stars with glue sticks.
Sprinkle gold or silver biodegradable glitter or paper confetti on the stars.
- Shake glitter from the container, or pour some in a dish and pick up the flakes between pinched fingers for an excellent fine motor activity.
Make a loop with a piece of narrow ribbon or chenille stem. Attach a loop to the back of each star with tape.
Your sparkling stars will glitter and shine on the Christmas tree!
