Do you like this story?
Have you seen this video of the size comparison of our Planets and the Stars?? It is amazing! If you ever want a good perspective on just how small we are on this little Planet Earth, this movie is definitely worth watching.
I have watched it with my kids several times and they are truly mesmerized by how huge all these stars are in comparison to our own Sun. Since our Sun has been shining so bright lately, I thought it would be fun to do a craft I am calling Star Bursts. We used a plastic fork to create the sun rays, super fun!!
2. Color each circle yellow and orange.
3. Pause for a moment to pick up the disastrous mess your baby girl made when you weren't paying attention to her. hahaha
4. Use the yellow paint and a plastic fork to paint the sun rays around each star and let it dry.
Looks pretty awesome, right??!!
Here is the completed project completely dry.
Andy wanted to add some glitter to his so we tried adding dabs of gold glitter glue and smearing them around the outsides of the stars. I actually prefer how it looks without the glitter but thought I'd throw out some additional ideas.
