Skill Level


Time to Make

45 minutes

Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Cut out a 21cm wide skyline of lots of tall building shapes from black sticky foam (black card may be easier for younger children to cut).
  2. Cut out some other individual buildings like churches or interesting rooftops and stick to the main skyline to create a 3D effect.
  3. Cut a sheet of purple foam in half to make it A5 size. Cut out a 4cm diameter circle of white sticky foam and place this in the top right corner for the moon.
  4. Stick the layered skyline on the bottom half of the purple foam.
  5. Use a silver glitter glue pen to edge the buildings on the sides that the moon would be shining on.
  6. Use other colours of glitter to draw exploding fireworks in the sky. Add some tiny dots of glitter nearer the buildings and smudge with a finger to look like fireworks in the distance.

Top Tip

Why not have a look out your window at night and copy the skyline onto your picture.
