Silly Star Fireworks

Preschool Reading & Writing Activities: Silly Star Fireworks

What You Need:

  • Construction paper (Red, white, blue)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue stick
  • Googly eyes
  • Marker
  • Glitter glue, or sequins (metallic, or patriotic colors)

What You Do:

  1. Help your child draw a large 5-pointed star on red, white, or blue construction paper and have her cut it out along the lines. Set it aside for now.
  2. Have her fold paper of a different colour in half two times to make a smaller rectangle.
  3. Ask her to draw a star on the top of the folded paper and cut it out while the paper is still folded. This will reveal four stars.
  4. Cut four strips of whatever colour paper remains and ask her to fold them back and forth so they look like accordions. When they are unfolded, they'll appear springy!
  5. Glue the folded white strips behind the red star to create arms and legs.
  6. Have her glue one star at the end of each of the limbs to create a cute firework star.
  7. Glue two googly eyes in place to give the star a personality.
  8. Encourage her to draw a smile to complete the face.
  9. She can now use glitter glue, or sequins to create even more pizzazz for a fireworks show.
