Sparkly 3D Stars

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

On Friday all three boys worked on this super easy and apparently super fun Christmas craft.

Sparkly 3D Stars
Difficulty: Easy

1 1/2 inch styrofoam ball
glitter spray paint

1.  I gave each boy a bowl with a styrofoam ball and some toothpicks and told them to stick the toothpicks in the ball.


2.  Once you are done poking toothpicks into the styrofoam ball, then spray paint the creation and let dry.

3. Place your sparkly 3D star anywhere.


Originally I had only planned on Thing 1 doing the craft, however, when I presented him with all the materials both Thing 2 and Thing 3 wanted to do it also.  All three of them enjoyed this craft, so much so that they asked to make a second star.  The best part for me was that this craft was easy enough for Thing 3 to do.  It was actually great motor skill practice.

Obviously, you need to supervise your kids while they are handling the toothpicks and parents are the only ones who need to handle the spray paint.

Just another day Crafting with the Cameron Clan!
