Paper plate Earth
You could paint it or decorate it in anyway you chose, using what you have at home. Earth is an example, you could be creative and do this with different planets.... you could start by painting or colouring the whole plate blue or whichever colour you chose depending on what planet you are creating then add the detail, other ideas you could use would be cutting out paper to make shapes for the land, glitter, tissue paper
Another little art/craft idea to go alongside the planets is creating an astronaut who can then visit the planets....the children can design and make these in any way they chose, the pictures just give some ideas that use very basic materials, white card, toilet roll tubes and felt tip pens..
We have Planets, we have Astronauts, now we need Aliens... the aim is to use recyclable materials and items that can be found round the house, tin cans, cardboard boxes, paper plates, card, stones from the garden. Here are few ideas...
Day and Night Art Activities
In line with the topic of space the next art activity is looking at what daytime looks like and what night time looks like, children can create either a day/night scene just to show the differences, again using recyclable materials such as card, paper plates. Below are some images as examples.
can you create a star constellation... these can be star sign constellations, animal constellations or your favourite constellation, I am guessing the Big Dipper will be a favourite... or if you are feeling extra creative then you could create one of your own and name it...as always use recyclable materials if possible but feel free to experiment and use your own ideas, below are some ideas...
So linking in with our geography and humanities topic about the weather... an activity for you to try Is making something to do with either your favourite weather or a weather type you would most like to find out about.... I have provided some ideas for the different weathers, including extreme weathers as we will be looking at these aswell...
