Glitter Collage Craft



Use this starry night glitter collage as part of a study of the solar system for your preschool space theme.




Children love the brilliance of glitter and its interesting texture. This easy kids craft gives them an opportunity to enjoy working with this interesting medium.

Since glitter spills and messes easily, be sure to supervise closely.



Starry Night Glitter Craft

You will need

1 piece black paper or card per child
glitter
glue stick
star stickers
scraps of metallic paper
a large sheet of paper or newspaper

Method

1. Create a sun and planets from the metallic paper and help your child to stick them on the black paper.
2. Let him decorate the page with stars.
3. Show him how to spread the glue stick in swirls where he wants glitter to stick.
4. Sprinkle the glitter over the glue, then shake off the excess onto a large sheet of paper. In this way you can funnel it back into the container and re-use it.


Variations

You could also use glitter glue pens, milky pens, space theme stickers, sequins or other shiny 'sprinkles' to decorate your starry night collage.
