This colorful Japanese holiday weaves together astronomy, language arts, culture, and design. Kids can fly their poetry strips on July 7, a date that springs from an ancient Chinese legend, or any day of the year.
Use Crayola® Scissors to cut colored construction paper into several long strips.
With Crayola colored pencils write poems or wishes on the strips. Write in rhyme, haiku, or free verse. Separate a long poem on several different strips or write a different poem or wish on each one. Young writers ask more experienced ones for assistance.
Illustrate and decorate your poetry strips with Crayola gel markers.
Punch a hole at one end of each poetry strip. Loop and knot yarn or Hallmark® Curl Sheen Ribbon through the hole. Tie the other end to a dowel stick to fly your Star Festival poems.
