“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don’t just give up.”
– Stephen Hawking
These days we are looking out the window a little more wistfully.
Outside it is stormy and moody and grey, so Elsie and I decided to look to the warmth and wonder of the cosmos and make tissue paper stars.
I prepared the paper and folded the points, then guided Elsie through the gluing process. It took some convincing to get her to buy in when I said the glue stick was not in fact, lipstick. She was very bummed out about this fact but forgot about it quickly when she got to hang our finished star on the window.
The warm colours are a welcome sight in our home today. I think in anticipation of Spring we will make more of these until we have a little constellation of tissue paper stars on our window.
Instructions for this craft here.
What sort of little things do you do to get through the final weeks of Winter? I am so ready for more sunshine!
