Work those little hands in a fun-filled origami activity that makes 5 pointed stars. These origami stars are easy to fold and make beautiful decorations. You can make them from magazines, scrapbook papers or sheet music, whatever you happen to have lying around.

A square sheet of paper. (12x12 scrapbooking paper is ideal)

--STEP 1--

Make a pentagon. Start with your paper nice-side-down. Fold the pentagon in half through each of its points and unfold again, so that you have a set of creases. Fold up the bottom edge so that the corners meet the creases you just made. Unfold again, then make the same fold for all the other sides of the pentagon, so that you have another set of creases.

--STEP 2--

Fold in the left edge along one of the creases you just made. Then fold up the bottom edge, at the same time pulling the corner of the pentagon out to the left. Squash the fold flat.

--STEP 3--

Starting with the pentagon completely unfolded, pinch all the corners together and squash them toward the center. With a bit of “massaging” the paper will collapse into a star shape.

--STEP 4--

Turn over the star. Fold in the right edge to the center line. Working clockwise around the star, do the same thing for all the other arms.
