Summer Reading Fun: How to Catch a Star
Once there was a boy who realized his dream of catching a star by discovering inspiration in an unexpected place. Here, we used an unexpected watercolor paint technique to set the scene for launching our own paper rocket into space to take hold of that star!
A child who reads opens a world of learning experiences. Don't close the book on this opportunity simply because school's out for summer. Encourage your kids to keep reading. Then, help them make crafts based on those books. Oh, the places your kids will go!
- Level:beginner (5 + up)
- Time:1 hour + drying time
1Make Your Sky: Use the foam brush to gently get water over an entire piece of watercolor paper. Use the eye dropper to drop the Blue paint onto the wet paper. (Leave some blank areas -- don't fill the entire paper with paint). Use the foam brush to dab the Blue watercolor paint over the blank areas. Let the paint dry.
2Create and Decorate Spaceship: Download and print project template. Color the pieces of the template with desired markers. Cut pieces out. Cut a few thin strips of Yellow and Orange tissue paper to resemble the fire coming from the spaceship's engine. Glue these pieces to the bottom of the spaceship. Attach the star and spaceship to the painted paper using glue discs.
