Here comes another super-easy way to make easy Christmas decoration stuff.
Draw some starts that your children can cut, or let them draw the starts themselves. I used the brown paper from the supermarket paper bags (about the only crafting material available in overflow in Rwanda).
Ask the children to colour the starts and then to glue them around a straw. Then get any pot you may have around the house and place the straws inside; or put them in plant plots. Voila!
