Star of David
Glue & an old paint brush
Piece of Yarn
Bright Colored Tissue Paper
Waxed paper (used only to keep table clean)
Scissors (Adults required)
Exacto-Knife (Adults required)
Cutting Board (or heavy piece of cardboard from an old box)
This is a great family project... the older kids (adults) can do the cutting, and the younger ones can help with the glue and glitter! Clear a table for this one. Use the full size pattern to cut out two Stars from the white cardboard sheets. To cut out the center areas, use the exacto knife. Then use a hole punch to put a hole at the top of each star.
Lay out some waxed paper (this is used to catch any of the glue or glitter that may fall off the cardboard.) ...lay the cut out stars flat on the table. On one side of each of the stars, cover it with glue... using the brush to push the glue to cover the entire area of the star. Let this dry.
While the glue is drying, you can cut out the squares of colored tissue from the tissue patterns. When the glue and glitter have dried... put a dab of glue on the corners of the pieces of tissue. Place the tissue on the inside of one of the stars (the side that does not have the glitter). Then brush a coat of glue to the other star. Carefully put the two stars together. Allow this to dry.
When the star is dry pull a string (yarn works good!) in the hole... and hand in your window. When the sun hits the window... watch it shine!!!
Variation: In the center area, instead of putting a piece of tissue... you can put in family photos.
