    1. Sometimes, I use the flannel set from Little Folk Visuals: http://www.littlefolkvisuals.com/nurseryrhymes.php or I’ve also cut out a star and made a sparkly wand to use with the rhyme. Most of the time, we just sing the song together, though, opening and shutting our hands to make our “stars” twinkle. For “up above the world so high”, we move our hands up; and for “like a diamond in the sky”, we make the shape of a diamond with our thumbs and pointer fingers. Happy Storytime!
