Creative writing goes intergalactic with imaginary planet mobiles and fictional adventures in a new galaxy.
Imagine that you discover several new planets in this or another galaxy. Gather several round, flat objects with different circumferences, or use a drawing compass. For each imaginary planet, trace three identical circles on white construction paper with Crayola® Colored Pencils. Cut out circles with Crayola Scissors.
Use gel markers to design unique planetary atmospheres, making the three circles for each planet similar. Design colorful cloud formations and interesting continent configurations. Use Crayola Washable Glitter Glue to add atmospheric effects and reflections from suns. Dry.
For each planet, fold all three circles in half. Attach a long piece of yarn to the back of the fold on one circle with Crayola School Glue. Glue the back side of halves to each other so that all three circles are glued together in a three-dimensional formation, with the yarn coming out of the top of the planet.
Design a space ship using the same technique. Cut out three symmetrical and identical space ship shapes. Design the ship with metallic crayons, fold, attach string, then glue all three pieces together.
Measure and cut construction paper to fit around a long recycled cardboard tube. Write the name of your galaxy in large metallic letters on the paper. Glue to the tube. Tie planets onto tube. Hang mobile from the ceiling with additional yarn.
Write a story with Crayola Colored Pencils about how you discovered each planet. Make sure your story has a beginning, middle, and end.
Use Crayola® Oil Pastels to make stenciled skies with stellar effects.
