How to: Guess How Much I Love You Moon and Stars Craft


This week our sessions were themed around the wonderful book Guess How Much I Love You. It’s one of those books that always brings a tear to my eye at the end, normally reading it before I tuck my own little hares into their cosy beds, and I was so excited to share it with the Squigglers.


One of my favourite crafts this week was inspired by the line ‘I love you to the moon…. and back’ and the Squigglers loved this super simple, but very effective, craft.


Here’s what we did!


What you will need:


A paper plate cut into a moon shape, with two hole punched holes at the bottom

Blue Paint


Gold/Silver glitter

Two paper stars, with a hole punched hole at the top of each

Two short pieces of wool



  1. Paint your paper plate moon shape blue


2. Add glitter! (You may want to do this over a tray to collect the excess)


3. Put glue on the stars and shake some more glitter on them


4. Thread the wool through the hole in the star and then through the moon and tie together so the star hangs from the bottom of the moon




5. Be very proud – you’ve done it!




  1. My daughter loves doing all these crafts but I think especially the moon and stars so we can hang in her bedroom. She’s very proud of what she makes and is really excited about messy play in the week b4 the next session!!

    • Thank you so much for this lovely comment! I’m so pleased that you enjoy the sessions and wonderful to hear that the Moon and Stars craft went down well. I expect it looks beautiful hanging up in Ziva’s bedroom! Jen x

  2. William had great fun making this at our very first Little Squigglers session. He discovered glue spreaders, (which are apparently fascinating), loved feeling the gloopy paint when he painted his hand blue and had great fun shaking the glitter – everywhere!

    Thank you Jen, it’s hanging up in our kitchen now, soon to be joined by lots more creations I’m sure.

    • I’m so pleased that William is enjoying Little Squigglers! It has been great to have him join us in the sessions and wonderful watching him create his masterpieces and explore the different themes. Looking forward to next term now!
