I have always enjoyed making crafts, especially for the holidays, and I have continued the tradition with my children. Last year for our homeschool lesson on stars, my daughter and I made a simple but fun start craft using popsicle sticks and beads. Once the Christmas season began and my daughter helped me deck the halls and trim the trees, I hung her star craft on my Christmas tree, adding the homemade decoration to my collection of treasured ornaments.
- 5 popsicle sticks
- Flat beads or jewels
- Arrange the popsicle sticks to form a star.
- Glue the popsicle sticks together.
- After the glue dries, paint the popsicle stick star.
- After the paint dries, decorate the popsicle stick star with flat beads or jewels.
- Loop a circle of yarn around one corner of the star.
- Hang the popsicle stick star.
