Ein kleines Sternchen sagte froh:
Ich bin nicht nur ein Stern aus Stroh.
Zu Weihnachten haeng ich am Baum.
Und das ist wahr,
nicht nur ein Traum.

A little star said happily:
I am not just a star made of stra(w)*
At Christmas I hang on the tree.
And this is true,
not fantasy (dream)*
(….*to keep the rhyme)

If you want to make the dream of the little straw star comes true, we have handicraft instructions for you. Self-explanatory and therefore easy to understand in all languages. You only need:

  • scissors
  • thread
  • a pencil
  • a knife
  • Some cardboard
  • a spice jar lid
  • a paper roll
  • a compass
  • sticks of straw or reeds. Natural or coloured, as you prefer. Do not water the coloured ones beforehand! The colours could rub-off.

​Enjoy the cosy crafting evening!
