The other day Parker came home talking about this science project... and of coarse he forgot the instructions in his desk... until Monday. Basically, he needed to make a 3-D model of the Sun and layer all the parts. Sounds easy enough, right?
Well, let me just say that when you live in a small town and the fifth grade assigns a science project and you all have the same idea about using a styrofoam ball, Hobby Lobby will sell out.
So, plan B. Use a smaller ball and clay to make the model. We even added some shape & bake polymer clay to make the solar flares. Fun stuff!
So after about 2 hours (yes, 2) this was the final result Ta da! Parker was very pleased and I was, too. Using clay ended up making his a little different than the others. And of course, I have to point out the straight pins... that is how Science projects get labeled when your momma sews. (ha!)
I am married to the love of my life and have three wonderful children~ Parker (11), Rain (7) and Maya (4). I am a stay at home mom who started a home business creating boutique children's items.
