But, we went for a slightly more hands-on approach this time and made a poster.
Here’s How To Do It!
To start with, make the planets, using coffee filters and markers.
They’ll look about like this. (Can you tell that I helped on a couple of them)?
Once the filters are colored, spray with a light mist of water from a spray bottle until the colors run together.
When they dry you’ll cut them out, so don’t worry if the edges look a little sloppy.
Next, using a black poster board, a star cookie cutter, and yellow paint, make some stars! This was definitely Alli’s favorite part.
Once everything is dry, cut the edges of the planets and glue them on the starry sky.
And, the finished product. It’s super easy, albeit not very scientifically accurate. 😉
Alli thought the puffy paint moon we made in this blog post should be in the sky, too.
A fun easy project that even younger kids can do. Now, she can hang it on her wall and admire her handiwork.
