Christmas star

tree starWhy not decorate your Christmas tree with a homemade star.

What you need:

  • Two pop sticks (or sticks found during a nature walk)
  • Glue or string to secure the sticks together
  • Tinsel

To make the star secure the pop sticks (or twigs found during a nature walk) at right angles to make a cross, then either glue or wind string around them to secure.

Starting in the middle of the cross, help the kids wrap the tinsel around the pop sticks – over, under, over, under, until they reach the outside of the cross. Tie the tinsel off or thread it back through a few of the layers to secure.
