We have been studying the planets the past few weeks and, as usual, I had to come up with some sort of art project to go with it.
We started with the sun.
Lori painted a paper plate orange and yellow and then tore pieces of yellow and orange tissue paper to stick on.
Next was the planet Mercury.
For this we used cardstock circles that the girls painted gray with a sponge to give bumpy (crater) look.
O.k. so we didn’t get very far with our planetary art. The last planet we did was Venus. If I had them do an art project for every planet we’d still be doing them in May. Anyways, here are the pictures of Venus.
The girls put their circles in a cereal box I cut the top off of and rolled around a marble dipped in paint.
The girls had a lot of fun making their planets. Maybe next year we will make the rest of the planets.
