You can shoot for the stars, but why not grow them from a pot? Plant a pot of stars on this magical card, created out of foam and construction paper. Your child will practice cutting shapes and layering patterns. This is a fun and easy craft to bring in the spring or summer seasons, and a great birthday or holiday card to give to friends and family! 

What You Need:

  • Construction paper (we used glitter-embedded construction paper)
  • Orange and red foam sheets
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Have your child fold one sheet of construction paper in half to create the base for the card.
  2. Have him draw and cut out the base and lip for the pot from the foam sheets. He can glue them together to finish the pot and set it aside.
  3. Encourage him to draw the outlines for stars of all sizes on different colored construction paper. After he's done drawing them, he can cut them out.
  4. Now, he can draw and cut out leaves from green construction paper.
  5. Finally, it's time to assemble all of the parts. Have him glue down a few of the leaves first, then glue down the pot, the rest of the leaves and all of the stars to complete his star card.
