Materials you will need:
Heavy duty paper or plastic plates
String or yarn
Materials for decoration - crayons etc.
Join two heavy duty paper or plastic plates facing each other. You can do this with staples, glue or by punching holes and tying them together. I tied, thus avoiding fingers scraped by staples. I also thought tying would be less likely to come apart. I punched holes with a hole punch in one plate, then used that as a pattern to mark where the holes should go on the other plate. Punching holes in the plastic plate was a little tricky, perhaps requiring some adult help. Using a big needle with a big eye, I threaded mending yarn through the holes, joining the two plates with a knot. I left enough yarn to tie on jingle bells. The star was glued on.
