After having published The 12 Crafts to Learn About the Solar System I came up with a play dough solar system craft. We love using play dough to learn science and to make models of various things. Our solar system isn’t an exception.
Play Dough Solar System Craft
You need a piece of cardboard, a marker and play dough of varying colors.
Looking at the picture of the planets, make their play dough replicas.
Using a marker, draw elliptical orbits on the cardboard. Place the Sun in the center of the cardboard and all other planets on their orbits. Label the planets.
