Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star Wand Craft

I have been a bit behind bringing you Mother Goose Time goodies. Recovery from the holidays too a bit longer than I had expected. We even did something we never do and celebrated new years. I am loving my husband’s job.

Not only does he enjoy it the schedule is steady and gives him major holidays home with us. It is so nice to enjoy them as a family. The kids were bored when the February Mother Goose Time box arrived so we dove right in with this Twinkle, twinkle, little star wand.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star Wand Craft

The February theme is Nursery rhymes. So perfect because for our Preschool ones. To make it fit the older kids we are adding more advanced science, math, and writing to the mix. We made these wands from Mother Goose Time and spent some time learning about stars and what they are.

Make your own Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star Wand Craft

What you need:

This is an easy one. Glue the star to the craft stick. Add glitter and let dry. Mother goose time sent a full tube of glitter for this one so the littles got to add glitter themselves without the fear of running out that comes when they send a small packet and I do not have that color in stock.

I wish I had had some gold ribbon on hand to hot glue to the back. I do not use gold in my sewing so I did not have any on hand.
