Ring in the New Year with this fun & festive wand craft! This is an easy paper craft that requires very little prep work and with 5 mix and match printable designs, kids will want to make more than 1. Plus when you add on a few jingle bells it can also be a fun noisemaker.
I created 5 mix and match designs for kids to choose from including a blank star for kids who want to draw in their own designs. I also included an “I wish” star for New Year’s wishes and resolutions. These printables are available to my newsletter subscribers and are part of my free printable library.

1. First, you want to print out your star printables. Scroll down to sign up for my newsletter and gain access to my resource library that also has lots of other fun printables for you to use. Print these out on cardstock to make them a bit more durable.
2. Have kids color, write and draw in their stars. We used pencil crayons for ours but you could also use markers or even crayons for younger kids.
3. Once kids are finished their stars, cut them out. Depending on the age of the kids this might need to be done by an adult.
4. Each wand uses 2 stars, so decide which two stars to use for each wand. Using a glue stick, glue the back of one star, put a straw in the middle and the other star on top, pressing down firmly.
5. Thread 3 jingle bells onto your string and tie them onto the straw towards the top.
6. For the final touch, you can add a gold or silver ribbon bow.
This New Year’s Eve wand craft requires very little prep work making it a great craft for kids to work on if you have other New Years festivities to attend to. Kids will have lots of fun designing their star wands and noisemakers to ring in the New Year.
