How to get Star Fragments and a Magic Wand in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Wish upon a star.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

If you feel like Animal Crossing is a magical experience, then New Horizons has a little something special for you in the form of Star Fragments and the Magic Wand.

After playing the game for quite a while, Celeste the Owl will arrive on your island and will give you a recipe for a Magic Wand. You will need three Star Fragments, and one Large Star Fragments to make this item. The Magic Wand will allow you to set up preset outfits, which you can then switch to instantly by using the wand, so you’ll never be improperly dressed for a social situation again.

How to Get Star Fragments

To get Star Fragments, you need stars. Shooting stars, to be precise. Shooting stars will appear randomly at night, and sometimes an NPC will give you some warning that they will be happening. If you see a shooting star, just use the right stick to point your characters head towards the sky, then hit A to make a wish upon the star.

If it works, the star will grow a little bright as it travels by and then you will be able to hunt for Star Fragments the following day. The day after wishing on a star, Fragments, both types, will be washing up on the beach, so make sure you check every beach on your island and gather them all up. The Large Star Fragment will be pretty rare, and you usually only get one each time.

And that’s it, everything you need to know to get your Star Fragments.
