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.
-white craft paper
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!
