Waldorf Stars

"The points to be borne in mind in children's handicrafts are: (a) that they should not be employed in making futilities such as pea and stick work, paper mats, and the like; (b) that they should be taught slowly and carefully what they are to do; (c) that slipshod work should not allowed; (d) and that, therefore, the children's work should be kept well within their compass." ~Charlotte Mason Home Education volume 1 pgs 315-316.


We made these
beautiful Waldorf Stars
to be hung in windows.



We are
giving them
to grandparents
for Christmas gifts.



One of my kiddos
called them water lilies. :)

There's a great tutorial at Garden Mama's Blog

Wishing you homeschool blessings,
Bethany

They were fun and turned out lovely. We made pretty huge ones. When we do it again, we will make much smaller ones to hang from the windows.
