A beautiful way to add more colour to a room is making these stars. It takes about half an hour to make, for ages 7 and upwards.

You can use tissue paper but I like to use special kite paper.

By making these stars, the child discovers the practicality of maths and angles through crafting.

To make a simple star:-

I start with a square, fold it in half then open it up so you have a folded crease line.

Then fold each wing in towards the crease line as per the image.

Using Pritt stick, glue these wings down, make sure the glue is him so you don’t see lumps.

Make 8 of these and join them with glue as per the image.

I used double sided sticky tape to adhere them to the window, as it’s clear and see through.
