How pretty is this Twinkle Little Star kid-made lantern?! A fun star craft to make with your young kids and sing the song “Twinkle, twinkle, little star” or use as decor at parties or Christmas-time!
It is Rhyme Time again! The last time we learned the rhyme Miss Polly had a dolly and I made a Dolly Comfort Pillow. This week’s rhyme is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and my daughter made a lantern!
So this craft calls for loosening control a little bit and letting your child use a sharp object. No need to say this will happen under supervision.
You will need black paper/cardboard or craft foam, thick cardboard to press on, a star shape and a sharp object(a strong toothpick could work too).
Secure the star with a piece of sticky gum(Prestik/Blutak) and let your child press holes all around the star. This works on those fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination too.
She did get tired of pressing the holes around the star, so I finished it off with a spiral.
This will work best if you add a fake tea light to it, but I did not have one at hand, so I used a real candle(carefully), just for the photo:
Imagine a few of these in a row on the porch at night time!
Such pretty, and rather an easy star craft for kids to make too!
