Super Moon

You heard about the Super Moon, right? We heard about it. According to NASA the perigee full moon on May 5, 2012 will be as much as 14% bigger & 30% brighter than other full moons of 2012.  But, alas, although we kept Gabriel up to see it, the fog was too thick in NJ. 

I had planned on this paper plate moon craft & went ahead with it:
It really does not need any explanation or directions. We had silver dessert plates left over from Gabriel's 3rd Birthday Blast Off!  although, you could use a white paper plate & color it silver with crayon or markers....
And then all you will need is school glue, one googly eye & we used glitter glue... (But you could use school glue + glitter.)

These are the best crafts! Gabriel loves putting on the googly eye!!! And he loves the sensory of touching the tackiness of the glue! For the glue stick "writing", I assist him hand over hand.
& we get this beautiful, finished product to hang... along with a little science lesson on the moon. Out of this world fun!
