Galaxy Day!

The Date to Create for May was Galaxy Day. The granddaughters, Margo and Helen, made Galaxy Slime, rode in a flying saucer, ate Galaxy popsicles and MilkyWays….and ended the day with painting and making planets from styrofoam balls and old cds. So much Glitter!

We started the day with the flying saucer on the swing, but it proved to be much more fun on top of the little car.

This was an amazing day. The big hit – definitely the Galaxy slime. It started as four different colors swirled together, but by the end of the day was deep purple and lots of stars and glitter. Still beautiful! They played with this stuff for literally hours. I did learn that the glitter does not necessarily stay in the slim. It was turning up everywhere!

We used glow in the dark paint to accents on their cd planets. The girls had to run into the closet and shut the door to check their painting every minute or so. The last project of the day was doing a galaxy painting. They both had a different take on it, but two beautiful, creative paintings!
