My Daughter's Star Mobile

Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too is issuing a new challenge today.  It is Hooray for Red, White, & Blue!  

I decided to create something with my 3 year old to decorate the house for the 4th.  I cut several stars with my Cricut.  I did use regular cardstock because cheap kids paper would ick up my Cricut mats.  After I cut the stars I punched holes in the top of them.

My daughter colored all the stars by herself.  Then I helped her go around the edges with some glitter glue.  Although you can only see 5 stars, she actually colored 10 and we glued them together back to back.

Last I helped her thread some yarn through the holes and I hung the stars from this baby sized hanger.

It was so much fun to use my Cricut to help create a fun memory for my daughter and me.

Be sure and check out what the rest of Tracy's DT creates today :)
