Bring Yourself Some Cosmic Joy with Paper Star Decorations!

A gif of constellations including Cassiopeia

The holidays are always a hectic time of year. I find that taking a break from my phone/computer/TV screens to take a walk outside and look up at the sky usually brings me a bit of peace and joy. One of my favorite things to do is look for constellations. During the winter months Cassiopeia, Taurus, and Orion are all visible! You can see what's happening in the night sky in your area at the Sky Live website.

Speaking of stars, we’ve got a simple craft to share with you that will bring the cosmos indoors! This Paper Star Craft is a cute, fun, and easy way to pass the time, & an inexpensive way to decorate to boot! All you need is 8 paper bags, a pair of scissors, and some glue.
