How to draw the STAR of our Jalur Gemilang?

With Merdeka Day just around the corner, Ethan has been learning a lot about patriotism and singing the Jalur Gemilang and Satu Malaysia songs everyday in Kindy. Yesterday, he brought home his homework and proudly showed me the Jalur Gemilang he drew in class.

I find it amazing that he is able to draw the STAR as I always find it difficult during my school days. I told him that my star always ended up looking like a disaster until my Mom taught me a simple method to help make it easier. Ethan requested for me to teach him too so I did.

I told him to draw 7 lines to get 14 ends.

Draw each tip and just like that, you’ll get the 14 tip star for your Jalur Gemilang!

    Thanks for the tips, Merryn. I guna cara lain dulu tapi my bintang tak pernah cukup 14 lah. I don’t care as long as my star nampak cantik saja… Hari ni Abang went to school with his Jalur Gemilang hat tapi bulan, bintang semua dah tanggal lor…
