Yesterday I posted a Christmas Card Star idea. Today another idea using the same star wreath. This time you can paint the star or decorate with stickers and then use tissue paper for a stained glass effect.
I used paint markers to create the dots. As with all paint check that what you use is washable and have aprons or warn parents/carers that there will be paint! I bought Washable Dab and Dot Markers. They are for 3plus years but if you put the lids out of reach and keep a watchful eye they are ok. If you don’t feel 100% comfortable with using something in your group then don’t use it.
The two ideas…
Star wreaths are from Baker Ross
‘For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’
A song to enjoy
Something to make – twinkly Christmas star
all you need
- 2 pipe cleaners (large) cut in half and twisted together in the centre to make a star
- beads to thread on to the pipe cleaners. Once done fold the end of each pipe cleaner
- fold one pipe cleaner into a hook at it’s end so you can hang it on the tree.
edited – found a spelling mistake!
Luke 2:8,9 ‘And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the lord appeared to them, and the glory of the lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear’
A craft to make – three lollipop sticks glued together to make a star. Add sequins and glitter and a button so you can thread through cotton to hang from the tree. Add a Bible verse of ‘Joy to the World’.
Something to listen to – Joy to the World carol. Enjoy!
