Activities Materials
These are two star theme crafts to incorporate in various themes:

Activity > Craft 1 > Easy Shapes Star Craft (10 piece)

Tell the children they will make a star. Have the children hold their finished star as they sing your choice of nursery rhyme, or Christmas song.

When presenting this activity for a Christmas theme, discuss the significance of the star as it relates to the holiday. Adapt the colors and decorations for a starfish theme. In this activity children will have fun practicing shapes: circle, triangle, crescent, oval.

  • Encourage to glue the template pieces to a piece of paper (dark blue) or to the large circle edges. Use the small image provided on the template as a guideline.
  • Children can add glitter glue or small pieces of aluminum foil to embellish the star.
  • If assembled directly on the circle you can make a little hole and tie a ribbon or string to hang as a holiday ornament or glue a craft stick/Popsicle stick to make a hand puppet
  • To reinforce, read and sing the rhyme again after the craft has been completed, and read at least once a day during the week using the rhyme poster and finished craft
