The universe always fascinates me, it is deep and beautiful. The universe is full of secrets. Secrets whose answers even the greatest minds have not been able to find out. Secrets that are being chased by great minds but winning them over every time.
Our Galaxy is one such secret and we painted it to see our stars that look like diamonds shining.
What all you would need:
Black sheet/chart paper
Oil Pastel Crayons
1. Grab a black sheet and your color and start coloring in a circular motion starting from Yellow, Orange, Light Purple, Blue, Light Blue, Sky Blue, Cobalt Blue, then start smudging the colors with your fingers to give it a better look.
2. Now, smudge the color with your finger
3. Color the center with white color that is the circle left before the yellow color and add white and black crayons and smudge them with your fingers again.
4. Sprinkle white paint on it with a toothbrush and draw stars with glitter pens or markers.
Smudge the last time with your fingers, and voila, your Galaxy art is ready. Now frame it and hang it in your room.
While doing this art with your kids, you can also teach them about why and how a galaxy formed, how many stars are there in the galaxy, where is our universe, and what all does it consist of? Trust me, talking about the universe while painting with kids would be a fun activity. There are some great videos on youtube that you can look up about the importance and significance of our universe to show your little ones
