There is a little boy that we know that is really into stars, constellations and meteor showers at the moment so I was doing a little research on projects that would be age appropriate and fun for him that would celebrate his current interests. I found a neat little project online on how to create your own planetarium, so this morning I got busy.
It was a pretty quick project to put together. The supply list and instructions can be found here. I covered a shoe box with colored papers after I had cut my rectangle and circle and then decorated using shapes cut from my Silhouette machine. The papers with the constellations on them I found online as well and I printed them off and then backed them with longer strips of paper and taped a large needle inside the box so that Tyler can poke his own holes in the constellation cards to create the finished project. Something good for fine motor skills as well.
