How to Make

  1. Draw a circle onto the back of a sheet of red foam and then cut it out.
  2. Place this circle on top of a sheet of orange foam and draw around it with a pencil. Inside the circle that you have drawn, draw some squiggly shapes coming in from the sides, then cut out these shapes.
  3. Peel off the backing of the shapes and stick them to the red circle to create your planet.
  4. Take a red stick and stick the foam planet to the top of the stick.
  5. Use a red pen to write ‘mars’ onto the stick.
  6. Repeat these steps with different colours to create the other planets.
