Time to Make the Sun
Out of Paper Mache
Miss Sassy was looking forward to this one.
I told her for learning time
She was going to get messy!
I let her measure everything out,
Because it didn't matter if it was exact.
Before I let her start, I made sure to cut out the paper.
I chose to use tissue paper,
so my "sun" could be more transparent.
We tried to just dip it into the mixture,
but it was too fragile,
So Miss S. painted while I hurried and put the paper on.
Hi Baby H!
This picture speaks a thousand words.
She loved it!
She loved getting messy.
She loved doing it all on her own.
So we let it dry.
And made our sun glow.
We read Me and My Place in Space!

To help her learn more about the Solar System
It is really on a child's level,
and it talks about characteristics of all the planets.
If she were a little older
Or if I were a little more ambitious
I would have made ALL the planets...
Probably better I didn't.
