How to Make
- Choose the constellation youd like to recreate - we recommend starting with something simple and using a larger piece of cards for more intricate/larger constellations.
- Using the constellation image for reference, place glitter star stickers onto the card to show where the stars appear in the constellation. Do not join the star stickers up with a pen line or anything else - the finished result should just look like a random arrangement of star stickers on the card.
- Give children a Deco Pen and picture of the original constellation and ask them to join the stars with a line in the correct places to recreate the constellation. You can then ask them to write the name of the constellation underneath, and mount the different star charts on a space themed wall display in a classroom or at home.
You could try drawing on the stars with glow in the dark paint instead of stickers, or using a larger piece of card and featuring two or more constellations on the same sheet.
