Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of light blue felt and turn it upside down. Place a wooden coaster onto it and draw around it with a pencil.
  2. Cut out the circle of felt and stick it to the top of the wooden coaster.
  3. Cut a thin strip of the same colour felt and stick it around the edge of the coaster.
  4. Take a sheet of green self-adhesive felt and cut out some small shapes, then stick them to the top of the coaster to create earth.
  5. To create the planet with a ring, cover the coaster in red felt, then cut out a ring shape from blue felt. Leave the edges of the backing on the felt (where it won't be touching the coaster) to prevent it from being sticky.

Top Tip

Create a range of planets using different colours and patterns.
