School projects often involve a Solar System Project, kits that have it all are not really allowed . This kit is great as it just gives you the basics and lets you be free in your creativity, to create a truly original Solar System.
Use the ball whole or cut them in half and stick them to a large sheet of card.
First you will need to paint the polystyrene in a thin coat of PVA, this will make it easier for the paint to adhere, then you get creative! Use the paint pots to create the planets!
Then it is up to you, you can use skewers to attach all the planets to the sun, suspend them using see through string, or rest them on paper cups painted black. You can be as creative as you like.
To finish you can give your planets a coat of PVA Glue to make them shiny! Below is a rough colour planet guide
Venus: pale yellow
Earth: blue and Green
Jupiter: orange and white bands
Saturn: pale gold
Uranus: pale blue
Neptune: pale blue
