Last Sunday, Mr K and I spent an hour to paint 9 polystyrene eggs. We tried to create our solar system by painting each egg a different colours as close to their own colours as depicted in our astronomy book. We have the Sun and 8 planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
After they all dried, we used a wooden skewer to poke through and thread an elastic string. I also used a plastic plate as the top to hold onto the eggs. Now it is ready as our solar system mobile!
