“Star Light Star Bright”

This week’s summer storytime theme was stars. Our books were: Stella Star of the Sea by Louise Gay, Mommies are for Counting Stars by Harriet Zeifert, and Scaredy Squirrel at Night by Melanie Watt.

Our songs this week included

Twinkle in the Sky

There’s a sprinkling of twinkling stars in the sky, Stars in the sky, stars in the sky, There’s a sprinkling of twinkling stars in the sky, A sprinkling of twinkling stars,
Stretch up and reach out to the stars in the sky, Stars in the sky, stars in the sky, Stretch up and reach out to the stars in the sky, The sprinkling of twinkling stars,
They wink and they blink way up high in the sky. High in the sky, high in the sky. They wink and they blink way up high in the sky. The sprinkling of twinkling stars
There’s a sprinkling of twinkling stars in the sky Stars in the sky, stars in the sky There’s a sprinkling of twinkling stars in the sky A sprinkling of twinkling stars.

Four Little Stars

Four little stars winking at me. One shot off, then there were three.

Three little stars with nothing to do. One shot off and then there were two.

Two little stars afraid of the sun. One shot off and then there was one.

One little star alone is no fun. It shot off, then there was none.

Our craft this week was a tissue paper star. It was a very simple craft and the kids really enjoyed it! All you need is a paper star (whatever size you like) tissue paper in assorted colors, crayons or markers, and glue.

Start out by coloring the star with a design or just any way you would like. This may seem redundant to color it if we are adding tissue paper but the design will appear beneath the paper. Next, tear strips, circles, blocks of tissue paper and glue them onto the star. This will give a textured effect and the kids can make a special design or just make it spotted. Several kids also embellished their stars by adding streamers to the bottom or adding balls of paper instead of flat pieces. The craft is very simple so it allows the kids to put their own spin on it.
