Brayden made this cute star in Primary this past Sunday. It is quite simple and a fun way for your child to make an ornament. This is perfect if you want to learn about the shape triangle at this time of year. It is also great for developing geometry skills in recognizing shapes within shapes.
Cut out two triangles. If your child is old enough, have him cut them out. This is excellent fine motor practice.
Glue the two triangles together so they form a star shape. Punch a hole in one point, tie a ribbon, and you are done!
This is simple enough for older children (preschooler and older) to do without your direct help, so you could have this be a Christmas activity while you are doing other things close by.
