These were both ideas I had seen separately on Pinterest and seemed to work well together for a themed starry day!
We started by making a starry sky in a jar! An old jam jar filled with blue glitter, warm water and a little glue. (I actually used pva which was a mistake as I should have gone for clear glue. The glue thickens the water and makes the glitter take longer to settle after shaken, however pva is cloudy wheras the clear doesn't show. I later made another one with silver glitter and glitter glue which uses clear glue. This was a lot clearer). The boys had the most fun mixing it all up - Joplin loves an experiment! Eden loved stirring it all up. When we were finished we gave it a good shake and then watched the glitter swirling around for a good couple of minutes before it settled. They were most impressed and the word 'Wow' was certainly uttered!
A very starry day!
