Thrive After Three

Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library

Draw Me a Star

I always wanted to explore using aluminum foil in arts and crafts, and have decided to use Eric Carle’s Draw Me a Star to introduce children to it.

Draw Star Folder

I did some prep work for this project. First, I used a manila folder and cut a star template. You can place each sheet of paper in the folder and trace the star outline.

Draw Star Cut

If the children are old enough, you can have them cut out the star. If they are too young, you can cut it out for them (or recruit a teen volunteer).

Cut page sizes of aluminum foil and put out art supplies including paint, brushes, crayons, rubbing plates, tissue paper, and glue. (See past Eric Carle posts for more ideas.)

Draw Star Finished

When finished exploring with the foil, glue to the star.

Check out past Thrive Thursdays for more school aged program ideas. For more information check out the schedule, Pinterest board, and the newly formed Facebook Group.
