I have had this idea in the back of my mind for a long time, ever since I came across it on I Heart Crafty Things. Creating our own moons. Hannah had a lot of fun with this activity. It was really easy to get together and took no time to finish. Ethan likes to walk up to our pictures and shout "moon".
|Draw a circle on a piece of black paper with white crayon.|
|Mix flour and white paint together until its about the consistency of tooth paste. Mine was a little too thick.|
|Hannah painted in her circle. The strange consistency made the painting really fun.|
|Using a bottle lid make some craters.|
|This was harder than I excpected since the paint was so thick and sticky. |
This is Hannah trying to pry the lid off.
|Hannah's moon this morning after it had dried.|
Next time, I would make sure that the paint mixture was thinner. Our moons ended up way to thick and as a result the paper curled as it dried.
