It’s the first day of summer vacation. What to do, what to do? Best answer… EVERYTHING. Michelle and the wee ones came over yesterday after lunch, and a couple of their friends soon joined. There was plenty of running around outside, a very quick dip in the freezing cold pool, followed by a very long dip the the Jacuzzi, which included bathing suits and goggles! A couple hour planned play turned into a dinner pizza party! And, just for good measure, an impromptu wee craft.
The girls were collecting sticks, while the boys were off saving the universe from storm troopers. With a wee bit of twine, the twigs were quickly fashioned into a pile of stars! Love these simple, fast summer crafts!
To make your own…
Gather together some sticks… baby finger size… some twine, and a pair of kitchen scissor.
Break or cut the twigs so they are all the same size.
Lay out 3 sticks, forming a letter “A”, with the horizontal stick overlapping the sides equally.
Add the last 2 sticks matching points to points.
Using short pieces of twine, tie all 5 points of the star together.
Go back and tie the inner crossed twigs together.
And there you have it.
Make a loop out of a longer piece of twine for hanging. We’ve hung ours outside, but these also make pretty ornaments.
