The Sun... by Parker Rivers

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!)
