I prepared for this craft by cutting several stars from red, white, and blue construction paper. I gave Julia a small lid full of white glue and a cotton swab. She spread glue on a star and sprinkled it with glitter. She repeated this process multiple times, adding different colors to her star. She glittered several stars, each with their own unique design.
She then painted both sides of a paper plate. When the paint dried, we cut them into a spiral. I used white thread and tape to attach each star to the spiral. Her mobile now hangs from her ceiling fan's pull chain.
