This is a simple and colourful, space themed collage for children of all ages.
You will need:
- Thin white card
- Yellow glitter
- Yellow paint
- Yellow pens, pencils and crayons
- A range of yellow collage materials
- String or cotton
Provide each child with a cut out card template of a shooting star. Allow children to choose how they will decorate their star using the materials provided. If completing this activity with older children encourage them to cut their collage material themselves to suit their own needs. Also with young children you may want to choose one method of decoration such as painting or glittering, or offering a more limited choice, depending on the ages and abilities of the children.
Once the stars are finished, make a small hole in the top to thread and tie a piece of string or cotton, then hang the stars from the ceiling, to create a space or night sky display.
