To help the girls remember that the sun was created on the fourth day, we made number 4 sun catchers. These are made by sticking torn pieces of tissue paper on clear contact paper (sticky side up) and then covering with a second piece of clear contact paper and then cutting it into the shape of a four.
We looked at images of the phases of the moon. Andy has a passion for astronomy and he has been teaching Arin about the phases of the moon and whether it is waxing or waning before she could even talk. He quizzes her about it everytime they look at the moon together, so it was fun to see what she thought of a poster of all the phases together.
We also used these constellation cards.
To put it all together, we made a paper collage of the sun, moon, and stars. The sun, moon, and stars were made by cutting magazine pages. The day and night backgrounds were made by tearing pieces of cardstock.
The girls also colored their Day 4 coloring page.
