4th of July Star Wand

It's the 4th of July and a lot of these kiddos are probably a little young for sparklers and other fun but potentially dangerous activities that come with the holiday.  Something for them to shake and catch their eye was what I was going for.

Supplies needed:
-popsicle sticks
-festive garland
-white craft paper
-foam stickers
-glue

The first step is to cut the garland in the length that you need.  I just wrapped it tightly around the popsicle stick and it didn't slip around.  I did cut  off a lot of the stars of the garland that were to be under the white star.  


I cut out a bunch of white stars with my Sizzix Eclips.  It worked best to glue the tips of the stars together.  The garland was a little too thick to actually glue the star to the popsicle stick.  Once the glue was dry the kiddos can add on the foam star stickers.  I was trying for a nice centered star on each side but JP had other ideas and when I wasn't looking started adding more to where ever they would stick!
