DIY: Planets


Emma loves science and in particular- SPACE. W encourage whenever we can. We dream with her, visit the planetarium and buy books. But nothing says space like bright colored planets. Especially ones that you make yourself. 

Try this! It’s great for a rainy day, easy, fast and involves tons of imagination. Perfect!



Styrofoam balls ($1 store)

Paint ($1 store)

Paint brust ($1 store)

All adding up to $3 for this awesome rainy day project! Whoop whoop!


I’ve found that paint can be crazy messy to clean up so I use the cap to an empty juice container for paint. Works perfect!



There’s something about bubbles in paint that I love. Weirdo.


Drying on another bottle cap.


Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
  1. Very cool project. I love seeing the step by step process. 🙂 Are you going to make it into a mobile?

  2. I’ve pinned this project with my grand girls and boys in mind! Thanks! <3
