3D Paper Star With Printable Star Template

Introduction:

Make a simple 3D star using the template below. The 3D star is a great activity for kids to do. The instructions are easy and the materials are mostly available in any household.

Using sharp scissors is involved which is why it’s highly advisable to have an adult present when cutting the paper especially when little children are going to do this activity.

There are some things you could do to minimize the danger posed by scissors to young kids. You could also prepare your child in using scissors so that they will get better at it a faster rate.

Try reading an article (scissor cutting skills) from ot-mom-learning-activities.com because they have a good article about teaching kids how to use scissors.

Anyways, we hope that you and your child will enjoy making the 3d star! And oh, one neat thing about this craft is that it looks awesome in any kids room.

Place the stars on top of yellow paper. A thicker variety would be better. You could use a pencil to trace the stars then cut the shapes out.

And you have to cut the yellow paper and use the white stars as a guide so that you'll have yellow stars instead of white ones. Also, don't forget to make a slit as this will be important later on.

Great job! The 3d paper star is almost complete.

Step 2

Tie a String to a Star

Get your ball of yarn, and select any of the two stars. In the next step, you will be decorating the object. Also, red and yellow make a striking match together but you could choose other colors!

Tip: You can also use a sewing thread for the star. This thread is less noticeable when hanging.

Use the slit to attach the string then tie a not at the opposite side of the slit. Ready your stickers or any other decorating supplies you might want to add to your stars. Here, jewel stickers were used. And clear glue was the adhesive.
