    My kids always wanted to make such star by themselves but we always thought that paper star will be spoiled. Is it better to make a paper one or to buy plastic?

    As for me, I would better prefer a plastic one, because it is more practical and better decorated with different sparkling details.

    I think that things that are made by kids should be appreciated more than the bought ones, because they are made with love and care.
