I love when you can get a little bit of extra learning into craft projects, making these pretty woven star decorations would be a great activity to talk about, mathematics, geometry and patterns with older children (6 +). I have tried making them with younger children but they found it quite tricky to follow the intricate patterns.
We made these pretty stars at Christmas time and they looked beautiful hanging from our Christmas tree.
Cut out circle shapes from thick cardboard, we used cardboard from the back of an old sketch pad. Our circles were 12cm in diameter. Then cut slots around the edges at equal distances. We tried stars with 8, 12 and 16 slots.
Trap the end of your yarn in one of the slots and begin wrapping. There are lots of different patterns you can make depending on how many points your star has. The pattern will look different on each side of your star.
