Duct Tape Sheet Solar System
Activity DesignerKathy Zagorski
My daughter loves outer space and planets and can name each planet, so we decided to make a fun solar system out of duct tape sheets!
What You'll Need
- permanent marker (black)
How We Did It
Since my daughter is only three, I used circles around the house to trace different sizes of planets on each of the colors of the duct tape sheets. Older kids can definitely trace the planets themselves, or even draw them freehand!
Next, I cut the planets out of the duct tape sheets, but, again, older kids can cut them themselves! We used the black marker to add Saturn's rings. My daughter wanted to go in order, so we started with the sun.
She continued peeling off each duct tape sheet planet and sticking it down on the black construction paper, naming each planet as she went along.
