Create a magical star wand with your kids at ThinkCrafts.com

I hate rainy days, especially when they fall on a weekend.  Why you ask?  Because it means the kids are going to get bored because we are stuck inside.  And I get bored, I want to get out and do stuff on the weekends and when it is rainy and cold that just is not going to happen.

This past weekend was one of those weekends when we were stuck inside all day, but I decided to be proactive (since I watched the news and knew this was going to happen) and get my supplies ready for a fun project for the kids.  We made Magic Star Wands that turned out to be Magic princess Star Wands (that is what the girls told me they were).

My oldest helped me make the wands while my little one was playing with her dad.  Once they were done I could not believe how much fun the girls had with them.  I think this was the best craft we have ever made.  They played with these for hours and are still playing with them.  They created a whole fantasy world this weekend all around these wands.  What a great rainy day project they turned out to be.  After the tutorial below on how to make the wands, check out the pictures of all the fun the girls had with them.

Supplies

Directions

Cut Template

Print out your Star Pattern, and then cut it out.

Trace

Trace the star onto your felt.

Two Felt Stars

You will need two starts one for the front and one for the back.

Glue Stick

For the wand, run your glue stick along the wooden dowel in thin line (this will help keep the ribbon in place)

Ribbon

Wrap your ribbon around your wooden dowel

Wrap

Continue to wrap each color of ribbon around till the wood is covered.

Glue

Use your glue gun to hold the ribbon ends in place.

Glue Pieces

Now glue your two star pieces together, but leave a hole so you can stuff it and insert the wooden dowel

Add Wand

You can use your pencil to get the fill in the ends of the star

Stuff Star

Once the star is stuffed insert your wooden dowel and use your glue gun to seal the star.

My girls decided they were princess wands and my oldest was the princess of blue and my youngest was the princess of pink!

About Tracey

I am a work at home mother of two living just outside Kansas City, KS. I started crafting with my oldest daughter to spend more time with her and to get her to focus more. And I have to say it has been a great experience for us both. As a matter of fact I have created a craft monster since she tells me several times a week “Let’s do a project MOM!” My youngest is finally at an age where we can start crafting with her too, but then comes the challenge of coming up with something a toddler can do that a preschooler will enjoy also… oh the challenges of a crafting mom. I hope to inspire other parents to craft and create things with their kids.
