Paper Plate Shooting Star Craft

Contributed by Kaitlyn Guenther

paper plate shooting star craft

When you see a shooting star in the sky, you're actually seeing a really fast space rock (called a meteor) burning up as it enters Earth's atmosphere. Different chemicals in the rock make the meteor burn a different colour, which is why not all shooting stars are the same colour. Different speeds can make the meteors burn in different colours too, so sometimes shooting stars even change colours as they travel across the sky!

This fun and interactive paper plate craft lets you create a colour changing shooting star of your own! Kids can really let their creativity shine with the colours they choose. And don't forget... make a wish!
