Out of this world

E really wanted a map of the solar system for his space explorations. I had him make his own. The big strip of paper was his idea and it worked well. He traced various sizes of circular objects for the different planets. On one end he started with the sun, then did the planets in order they orbit. He tells me he wants to be an artist sometimes. I really like how he pays attention to all the details and used different techinques on each planet.

We used two great reference books to check out the details on each planet.

I love it when five year olds out craft me.

And when I get on your blog and see that I missed a bunch of posts.
