Could you really use a wish right now? Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true. Make these shooting star pencils for classmates, party guests, or just a plain old rainy day activity with your kids. Then wish away!
Step 1: Download and print out the Shooting Star Pencils Template onto assorted colored card stock. Cut out the stars.
Step 2: Cut about 8 inches of ribbons, in five different colors. Glue the ribbons in a row on the backside of the star. Let dry. Trim the ends of the ribbons if they are jagged.
Step 3: Affix the stars with washi tape to the tops of pretty patterned pencils.
