Level: Easy

Materials
Large sheet of paper
Scissors

Glue stick
Eye dropper
Different colours of food colouring (we used red, blue, yellow, green)

Allow to dry
Put some glue on the back of the ring and assemble the planet by tucking the ends of the ring behind the circle and taping. Use a glue stick rather than wet glue, as wet glue will make the colours leak.

Planet assembled and ready to hang


Your spotty planet is now ready to hang. These would make a fun wall decoration for a space themed birthday party with fruit rocket ship skewers and a rocket ship birthday cake.
