Labor Day Fun with the Family

For most people, Labor Day is a day free from work, school and any other obligations you may have on your plate. But if you’re wanting to spice up your normal and boring Labor Day, All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram put together a few of these fun games and invite your friends and family over to join!

Ripped Paper Star Wreath Craft

This simple by fun ripped paper star wreath craft will have your kiddos wanting to craft all day long! You may need to help cutting out the stars, but other than that this craft is super easy and will make the kids proud of their work once they’re finished! Ripping paper also strengthens little hand muscles which is important for pencil gripping and other fine motor skills later in life.

Materials Needed For Ripped Paper Star Wreath:

  • Construction Paper: Red, Blue & White
  • Paper Plate
  • White Glue
  • Sticky Crystal Embellishments
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Start by ripping the red and blue construction paper into small-ish pieces.
  2. When done let the adult ‘fluff’ the ripped pieces to mix the colors up. This way when the child is gluing on, it would be random. (So not too many reds all together, then a clump of blue, etc).
  3. Next, let the adult cut the center out of the paper plate to form the wreath base. Also cut out 5 stars.
  4. When done ripping, put glue on the paper plate wreath in about 2 inch sections at a time. Then adhered the ripped red and blue construction paper to the plate until it is completely covered.
  5. Next glue on the stars.
  6. When the glue is completely dry, you can add sticky crystal embellishments for a little shine or leave the wreath as is.

Now you can hang up your children’s art work at the front door or throughout the house for decoration and your guests will be able to see how beautiful it is!
