DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Orbiting Object Paper Plate Craft

Orbiting Object Paper Plate CraftYou can mix and match all the different templates and paint your paper plate to represent any celestial body you like!  I've provided a few suggestions.

Once your craft is complete, you'll have a number of figures that you can orbit around your paper plate.  Because we use a brass brad to attach the templates, the children will be able to spin their characters around their planet (moon or sun).
