Duct Tape Sheet Solar System

Duct Tape Sheet Solar System

My daughter loves outer space and planets and can name each planet, so we decided to make a fun solar system out of duct tape sheets!

Ages:
3 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. duct tape sheets
  2. black paper
  3. scissors
  4. permanent marker (black)
  1. Since my daughter is only three, I used circles around the house to trace different sizes of planets on each of the colors of the duct tape sheets. Older kids can definitely trace the planets themselves, or even draw them freehand!

  2. Next, I cut the planets out of the duct tape sheets, but, again, older kids can cut them themselves! We used the black marker to add Saturn's rings. My daughter wanted to go in order, so we started with the sun.

  3. She continued peeling off each duct tape sheet planet and sticking it down on the black construction paper, naming each planet as she went along.

  4. This project was out of this world! Enjoy your duct tape sheet solar system!
