Star Collage

Third Grade Arts & crafts Activities: Star Collage

What You Need:

  • White construction paper
  • Scraps of red and blue construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue

What You Do:

  1. Offer your child pieces of red and blue scrap construction paper of various sizes. Now invite your crafter to begin drawing several stars free-hand seeing if they can create stars of different sizes.
  2. Now offer your child a ruler and encourage them to use the straight-edge to draw and measure the lines of a few more stars. Do they prefer to draw the stars freehand or to create mathematically-designed stars?
  3. Get out the scissors and invite your child to cut out all those festive stars. Encourage crafters to take their time trying to cut along all the lines, which is a great way to boost hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills!
  4. Offer your child a sheet of white construction paper and glue to use for creating the star collage. Your child can position the stars randomly or create a pattern or unique design!

The finished star collage can be proudly displayed somewhere in your home!
