I've been thinking on this one for probably almost a year.
My friend Julie gave me the idea, when she said she had a game that came with cards of the constellations.
We don't have the game, so...
We pulled out three of our astronomy books
our sky chartand dark blue cardstock... and the construction paper that we painted with Magic Colors (colors of twilight) last year.
We consulted our book and glued on our glow-in-the-dark stars (you could paint them on instead with glow-in-the-dark paint, if you wish)
then connected them with chalk.
You could also use white colored pencils or paint, of course. We didn't want the connections to glow, just the stars.
On the back I wrote any pertinent information, including during what months it can be viewed, and directions to make it easier to find.
We'll hole punch the corner, and put a ring on them.
Can't wait to stuff our collection into a bag for our Journey Into the Wild Unknown next week. : )
