Today’s Story Book Advent post is brought to you by Crafts on Sea with the fabulous book Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star by Petr Horacek. With fabulous illustrations Suzy is a goose that is decorating a Christmas Tree, she goes to put the topper on the tree and finds now star – so starts her adventure to get the star from the sky that sparkles and glitters to go on the top of the tree to complete her Christmas.
Kate from Crafts on Sea creates a beautiful Suncatcher with glitter added to match the stars found on the Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star book, this is a fantastic craft for toddlers up and using the sticky back plastic (contact paper). We love crafting with contact paper especially with this age group as normally it’s not very messy and the kids love the sensory aspect of their fingers sticking to the paper.
