Morning meeting becomes magical when you use star wands to ask kids icebreaker questions. Just print out our questions and paste onto wands made with craft sticks and your own cutout shapes. Then, add yarn and other decorative elements!
What You Need
Colorful copy paper
Craft or liquid glue
Yarn (3 colors)
Card stock (or 4" pre-cut stars)
Large craft sticks
What to Do
1 | Print the suggested Morning Meeting Questions on colorful copy paper and cut out.
2 | Glue the questions to 4" card-stock stars with a glue stick. You can either buy premade stars or cut out your own.
3 | Use craft glue or liquid glue to attach each star to a large craft stick.
4 | Cut a 4” length of each yarn color. Glue three pieces of yarn to the back of each star. We recommend attaching the yarn to the far-left or far-right side of the stars!
5 | After the stars have dried, make them sturdier by gluing a second star on back.
6 | Next, make a label for your small metal bucket or other container. Using a marker, write the words, "Morning Meeting Questions” on a label sticker. Fill the bucket with your question stars.
7 | Pull one star out of the bucket at each morning meeting. These fun questions and conversation starters are the perfect way to start the day!
