- Paper straw or wooden dowel
Fourth of July Craft
Star by printing your craft template onto thick paper or cardstock, this will help make sure that it keeps its wand shape and is more durable when your child plays with it.
Next up is decorating, I prefer to do this before cutting the shape out so that if your child’s markers or crayons go over the lines at all you don’t need to worry so much about it going on your table.
You and your kids can use anything you like to color with and you could even add a bit of glitter glue if you wanted, I think this would look great on the fireworks design.
Next you will need to use scissors to carefully cut out your stars. Use tape to attach one of your star shapes to the top of your straw or wooden dowel making sure that the colored in side faces outwards.
You could also tape or glue some pieces of ribbon in red, white or blue to the inside of your craft to make streamers or you could tie some of the ribbon in a bow around the stick just under the star shape.
Finally you’ll need to stick the second star shape onto the back of the first, again making sure that the colored in part of it is facing the outside.
To join the two start shapes together I would recommend using double sided tape rather than a glue stick or school glue as it will hold the two pieces in place more strongly especially with the wand’s stick in the middle of them.
Worried you’ll forget how to make this? Don’t panic, we’ve written some easy instructions onto each page of your printables.
