Window Stars

This semester, we are going to school with Samantha (every Wednesday)  so I can teach art classes.   MH elementary has Wednesdays set aside for art, science, KemPo, and cooking classes.  the class is split up into 4-5 groups of about 8 kids and they take turns going to their ‘stations’. 

Today’s lesson was Window Stars!  I got the tutorial from Nicole (HERE) but we used tissue paper instead of kite paper.   If you’ve never made these, it’s a great project!  even little 6 yr old were making them (with lots of help).


look how tiny the green one is!  the large ones were made using  5″ squares, the small ones were made using 2½” squares. 


One of the girls in the class made all these stars…  the big green and purple was made using 10″ squares.


now I need to come up with projects for the rest of the year.  If you have a fun suggestion, please let me know.  the kids are ages 6-12 years.


About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

    Last year Natalie and I did a project with her class that was fun. Get tissue paper in a lot of different colors and cut them into small squares (1/2-1″). Get a black and white picture of anything and make copies. For instance a flower. Water down glue in a bowl. Have each child take a pencil and put a piece of tissue paper over the eraser end. Twist slightly. Lightly dip into glue and place within the picture lines. If you press it for a few seconds, it will stick. Once the glue is dry you have a 3-D of the picture. We did it in Kindergarten and was a blast. Simple pictures were used. For the older kids, more elaborate pictures are fun. I had so much fun and I was the adult at the station.
