Make a starfish wand!

All teachers need a wand, a pointer, to indicate words, pictures, follow a story....and adding a touch of whimsy sure makes it all the more fun! I was drawing pictures for a new product for our TpT store and realized that the starfish I had drawn would make a super cute wand and naturally I had to share it with you!

This is a very simple wand to make. You will need:
*A printout of our starfishes (download here)
*A bamboo skewer
*A piece of stiff paper, glue
*A length of ribbon
*A foam adhesive circle/square (the kind used in scrapbooking)

To make:
*Print out the starfish page and cut out both starfishes, leaving a bit of paper around it rather than trying to cut along lines
*Glue each to stiff paper, then cut out again. (Laminate if you wish)
*Adhere the foam circle to the back of one of the starfish in the center. Stick the back of the second starfish to the circle, which will leave a bit of space between them 

*Put a dab of Elmers Glue or craft glue onto the tip of the skewer and insert it into the foam circle. Let sit to allow glue to dry.
*Tie the length of ribbon into a bow directly under the starfish....and you are done! Kiddos will love using it during class, and you will, too!
