I searched the house for anything that might help me make something so Olivia and Abigail could paint some stars on their own. Then I saw the box of cheerios sitting on our dinning room table. I am glad I didn’t put it away after the girls snack!
I stole the box. 🙂 Then I made some star stencils out of it.
Here is how:
1. I cut off the back.
2. I drew two stars on it with a pen.
3. I cut the first star out by cutting along the lines so I had a start shape the girls could trace.
4. I cut a hole inside of the second star then cut out along the lines to keep a star pattern inside the box the girls could fill in with paint to make a star.
Livy was already trying to work them like a puzzle once I was done making them. Its so easy, I’m sure it can be done with other shapes too!
