2 pieces of red, white, and blue construction paper

Red, white, and blue ribbons 

glue stick or tacky glue 

scotch tape

straws

Instructions

Here is a great craft project to keep your RVing Kids busy getting ready for the 4th of July Celebration

For each Star Wand you will need to cut two each of red, white and blue stars, each a little larger than the first.

1. Cut two red stars using your red construction paper 3-4 inches in size.

2. Cut two white stars slightly larger 4-5 inches.

3. Cut two blue stars slightly larger 5-6 inches.

4. Use your glue stick to glue together the red star to the white star. Then glue the blue star on the back of the red and white star. Now you should have a red, white and blue star all a little larger than the red one stacked on one another. Now allow the glue to dry, then repeat for the second star set.

5. Once the glue has dried on the two sets of stars, place your straw in the middle of the star and tape it to the back of your larger blue star. Then glue the two sets together and allow them to dry.

6. Finish the star wand by taping a 15-inch piece each of red, white, and blue ribbon around the straw. Enjoy!

Additional Tips

You can also use a pencil or ½ inch wooden dowel instead of the straw. Don’t have construction paper? Then try using a piece of cardboard to cut the stars and for a distinctive look cover them with tinfoil or use plastic from a milk carton for the stars. Felt and craft foam will also work to make the stars. Just use your imagination and have fun!
