And, we had some additional, Fancy Nancy fun, inspired by Jane O'Connor's Fancy Nancy Sees Stars. Just in case you're wondering, it did not involve making star cookies (though it easily could have, as Raising a Happy Child, pointed out in the comments of yesterday's constellation dot-to-dot post).
We had actually already turned the left over yellow cookie dough, from our star chart cookie, into star cookies, while watching The Magic School Bus Sees Stars (here, on Gamequarium). It's a lot of Magic School Bus fun, as always, but with a heavy dose of big bang, and ancient earth theory thrown in, so be warned.
Besides eating cookies, Fancy Nancy, and her family, set up lawn chairs, at night, in their backyard, for their own "private" show, after missing the presentation at the local planetarium.
I would have loved to have done that, but of course, our weather, last night, was chilly, cloudy, and wet - not good for star viewing, at all. Instead, I pulled out the plastic glow-in-the-dark stars, left over from our glow-in-the-dark star stickers, that have been taking up space in our supply cupboard, for years.
They don't have any sticky on the back, so I've never been sure what to do with them - until last night. When, I put clear tape donuts on the back of each, and had G stick them to the underside of the table...
...so we could surprise the little ones, with a truly private, if not exactly accurate, star show, of their own.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
