DIY New Year Wishing Wand

DIY New Year Wishing Wand

Help your students start the new year in a sparkly, fresh fashion! Make a wish with an adorable, DIY New Year wishing wand that is sure to help you kick off the celebration with a smile! Include this whimsical wand craft in your classroom and home to encourage imagination, creativity, and fine motor development in young children.


Trace a circle on the construction paper. Fold the circle in half and then fold the half into three sections. Cut the paper to form a star. Next, cut out the center of the star so there is only an outer frame. Place the outer frame on the clear Magic Cover Adhesive Roll and cut off the edges. Decorate your wand. Write a wish on a Jumbo Natural Craft Stick. Glue the craft stick to the wand, tie a ribbon on it, and enjoy!
