Hi, my name is Emma and I’m an author. Today let’s follow the Christmas Star and see where it leads us!
First we’re going to hear the story of the Christmas star and then have a go at some fun star themed activities!
The Christmas Star
Let’s listen to the story of the Three Wise Men following the Christmas star!
This story is one that children might already be familiar with. They could play along with their own toys, acting out the story themselves.
Develops Communication, PSHE and Understanding the World skills.
Make a Star
Have fun and be creative to make your own Christmas star!
This activity allows children to try different ways of creating a star. Children can make one star or lots of stars and they can decorate them however they like. If they want to make lots of stars or just one, and however they wish to make them they can have lots of fun. Take care with using scissors if you choose to use them.
Develops Creative Skills
Make a Wish
Can you make a wish on your star?
Encourage your children to make a special wish on their stars. This is a lovely activity that develops children’s communication. It helps them to think about wishes for themselves and thinking about others in their family.

Following a Star Trail
Let's follow a trail of stars and see where it leads us!
This is a really simple activity which takes very little time to set up and can keep children occupied for a long time! You can try setting up the trail in different places, or asking your children to make a trail for you to follow. You can make the trail inside or outside, or both! You can also vary what they find at the end of the trail.
