Don't forget!

Always supervise your tot during art and craft activities, especially when using scissors.

This crafty Christmas creation is so easy, it’s worth making a few in different colours. Your toddler will be thrilled to see the tree decorated with stars you made together!

You will need:

  • Empty toilet roll tubes (One tube will make one star)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Glitter paint, or other paint
  • Glitter
  • Coloured thread

How to make your star:

  1. Flatten a toilet roll tube. Cut into five sections approximately 2cm wide.
  2. Glue one end of each section and bring them all together in the shape of a star, flat on a table. Leave to dry.
  3. Cover the whole shape in paint (we’ve used glitter paint but you can use any colour you like) and leave to dry.
  4. Put glue on the outside of the star and sprinkle glitter all over.
  5. Tie a small piece of thread through one of the sections of the star, and hang on your tree for everyone to admire!
