We had a fun night last week staying up late and looking at some stars. It was one of our science explorations for the summer reading program.
I pulled out a book that I have that has glow in the dark constellations.
It worked great when we shined a flashlight on it. They lit up so well, and the little guy had fun making those light up while we were waiting for the sun to go down all the way.
Aaron took out his play telescope. I'm hoping that we'll be able to get the real ones out this summer. The boys sure would love it.
The boat made the perfect star observation deck.
I LOVED letting the boys stay up late to look at stars, it was so much fun. Such special moments too.
The next day we made some constellations out of marshmallows and toothpicks. I drew them on cards to make it easy for them.
Aric made virgo.
I was impressed with Alex. He made quite a few, and totally got it. Having them drawn out on 3x5 cards really helped.
All in all it was a super fun science exploration!
