Glowing Constellations!

I couldn't get a very good picture of these constellations we did a couple of weeks ago, but thought I'd share this "oldie but a goodie" idea anyway because the kids absolutely love making these! After a study of the sun and stars, I gave the kids half sheets of black paper. They drew a design on them with white crayon or colored pencil and also wrote their initials. Then, I gave each of them a push pin and they poked holes along their designs and initials. We hung them on the ceiling lights so everyone could look up at their wonderful, glowing constellations!


  1. I LOVE this idea! Thanks for sharing! I always look forward to reading your blog!
