Make identifying the planets in the solar system easy by highlighting their special features with Crayola® Color Sticks.
Choose a planet to research and compile 5 to 10 interesting facts pertaining to it. Use books or the internet to view detailed pictures of the planet.
Use a large paper plate as a template to draw two circles on a recycled brown grocery bag or piece of brown craft paper. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors.
Observe the colors, patterns and identifying features on your planet. Draw the features using Crayola Color Sticks on each circle of brown paper. Use different techniques while coloring like pressure variation to lighten and darken colors; cross-hatching with closely spaced lines; and layering colors to create different hues. Color Sticks are also great for broad strokes, shadows and highlights.
Put the two planet circles together with the colored sides facing out. Ask an adult for assistance in stapling around the edge of the planet, leaving a small portion unstapled.
Rip up several pieces of recycled newspaper. Crumple up the pieces of recycled newspaper and insert them into the planet. When the planet is full, finish stapling it.
Color both sides of a piece of construction paper in the same array of colors as your planet. Write the name of your planet on one side. Write up or print out your planet facts on a piece of white paper. Attach your planet facts to the construction paper with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Use a hole punch to punch a hole on the top and bottom of your planet and also on top of your decorated planet facts paper.
Cut two pieces of fishing line about 12 inches (30 cm long). Loop one piece of fishing line through the hole on top of the planet and knot the end. Loop the second piece of fishing line through the bottom of the planet and the top of the planet facts paper and knot the end.
