Up In The Sky

Summer is the perfect time to lay down on a blanket outside and gaze up at the sky. That’s why this month’s box includes arts, crafts, and science projects that highlight things that fly: a fluffy sky with an airplane, mosaic kites, and a paper-mache hot air balloon! For an interactive science project, you and your little one will assemble a helicopter that’s powered by rubber bands and fun to play with outside. There are two airplane origami projects, too! Each of these projects feature vibrant colors, hands-on sensory experiences, and natural learning that your child is sure to love!

Activities in the Up In The Sky Box:
Fluffy Sky with Airplane
With this project, you will bake clouds. Yes, that’s right! Mix up a simple dough to make puffy paint, spread the dough onto your base, put it in the microwave and watch your paint puff up. The result is a beautiful fluffy sky! To add a bit of excitement to the sky, draw your own airplane, cut it out, and glue it on the sky.

Black Glue and Watercolor Mosaic Kites
Let’s make a kite! You won’t fly this kite, but it will be a colorful piece of summertime art to display in your home. Create a mosaic kite by pouring squiggly lines of black glue and painting each section a different color. Then tie on a golden string as the finishing touch!
