We made these stars several years ago for the holidays and hung them in the kitchen. I loved seeing them spin and sparkle every time I came in the room. I kept them up for months longer than I had planned because they were just so pretty and ever since I've wanted to make them again. The book for today is Santa's Snow Cat and the illustrations of Santa and his kitty flying through the sky made me think that this would be a perfect craft to go along with this book.
Santa's Snow Cat is written by Sue Stainton and has deliciously detailed and mesmerizing illustrations by Anne Mortimer. You can read more about it here.
Step 1: Print and cut out one star pattern on cardstock. Use it as a stencil to trace as many stars as you want and cut them out.
Step 2: Use wax paper or something similar to cover your surface.
Paint the star with Mod Podge, then sprinkle with glitter. Let it dry. To seal in the glitter, paint it again with Mod Podge and let it dry. Turn the star over and repeat on the other side.
Step 3: The Mod Podge makes these stars flexible and durable so you'll be able to pack them up and use them again if you'd like. String them as a mobile, garland, or just hang them from the sealing. Of course, they make pretty ornaments too!

I'm so excited to share these free Halloween shadow puppet printables with you! Just print on cardstock, cut them out, and then glue each one onto a straw, stick, or small dowel. Place the puppets between a light source and a blank wall or sheet and start the storytelling!
