These Twig Stars make a really sweet holiday craft and decoration, but they’re also a fun and simple Forest School inspired math activity that your child will love.
Although it’s summer break, we still try to keep a learning rhythm going throughout the week. I love this project because it combines arts and crafts with science and math. Both of my kids loved going to the forest and collecting twigs for this project. My youngest really enjoyed measuring the twigs, counting the points, and talking about shapes, and my oldest had so much fun putting the star together and creating the felt flowers.
