Glitter (yay!) Galaxy
« on: July 25, 2009, 08:25:20 pm »
This activity is called Glitter Galaxy Craft, and is simple enough for the young ones. A beautiful sparkly galaxy is made with just glue, glitter, and black paper. I'd enhance the activity by having the students put the bar in the Milky Way, then go on to create the other types of galaxies--elliptical and irregular. Have pictures on hand as models. And remember, be prepared: glitter = fun AND glitter = mess ;-)

Awwwwww ;D

I tried to make some cards like that the Christmas before last. It was an utter disaster - though that may have been because I couldn't find any loose glitter, only glitter pens. Anyway, as some people know, I printed off a lot of galaxies and stuck them to black paper :D ;D I can see loose glitter plus glue working a lot better than glitter pens.

On a slightly different note I saw a pack of glow-in-the-dark stars and planets in a museum shop yesterday.

I was soooo tempted! ::) ;D

Glad the little ones have been included here at the zoo, hopefully some glittery pictures will get posted.  Nice idea.  :)

I can see Anisha and I will be covered in glue and glitter this weekend - and probably the cats too  ;D Should be fun!

I "inherited" (from 2 former housemates) a box of glow-in-the-dark stars one December - and sewed them all onto cotton loops and hang them on the Christmas tree every year. You should see the Christmas tree when the lights are out! We don't use fairy lights so it looks absolutely magic! ;D I'm thinking about buying another lot to put on my ceiling too ;D
