How to Make a Twinkling Star

Holiday crafts, like this twinkling star, are fun and educational for kids. This craft exercises kids’ finger muscles and prepares them to hold a pencil and write.
For this craft you will need:

• Craft sticks
• Glue
• Markers
• String (if you want to hang it up)
• Decorations

Be careful when using sequins or small decorations with young children.
Choose a shape for your star. You‘ll need four sticks to make a starbust, five sticks to make a five point star, or six sticks to make a Star of David.
Color your sticks and glue them together in your desired shape. You can do this step for your kids if they’re too little.
Set your star aside to dry for ten minutes
Decorate with sequins, buttons or other materials!
Decorating helps build your child’s fine motor skills. Those are the muscle movements that help little fingers pinch, pull, poke and sort.
Boost your child’s learning by asking questions and talking about the craft. Every bit of conversation you have with your child will help him learn new words and practice talking.
Some good crafty questions are:

• What color is this, or, what shape is that?
• How does the glue feel?
• How many sequins are on that stick?

If you want to hang your star, glue a loop of string to the back!
