- Black paper
- Chalk (chalk pastels or just sidewalk chalk will do, too)
- White paper
- White and black paint
- Crayons, oil pastels, or markers (we used oil pastels)
Optional: tissue or paper towel
Step 1 – Create your grey paper!
Put a bit of white and black paint into a cup.
Mix it together until you have a medium grey.
Paint the entire white sheet of paper grey.
Set aside to dry.
Step 2 – You will now use your black sheet of paper for the next few steps.
Take your chalk pastel a rub it on your black paper. We used purple, but in the past, my students have chosen many different colors.. it always looks beautiful!
I always tell my students to use the flat (long) side of the chalk so that they aren’t “drawing.”
Once you have the desired amount of color on your paper, use a tissue or paper towel to smear the chalk.
You can use your hand too if you are feeling up to the mess!
Step 3 – Put some white paint in a cup and mix it with a little bit of water (you just need a drop of two of water).
Use your brush and a flick of the wrist to splatter paint beautiful stars!
Set this paper aside to dry.
Step 4 – It’s time to use that painted-gray paper again!
I have my students flip the paper over and draw their shapes on the back, so that when they cut out their shapes, you don’t see any pencil marks.
Use a marker or pencil to draw three shapes on the back of your paper: a very large oval, a rectangle/cylinder, and a circle.
While it’s tempting to let your child trace shapes for perfection, I suggest letting them draw the shape on their own! Break it down to each line if you need to.
Step 5 – Cut out your shapes and glue them to your black paper.
Step 6 – Use your oil pastels, crayons, or markers to add details!
The completed spaceship!
