Make your own star map

Star Map Collage

You will need:

  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • String or split pin
  • Colouring pencils or pens
  • Something to draw a circle around
  • Paper or card
  1. Draw a circle onto some paper or card.
  2. Draw your stars and constellations on. We used a mix of real ones we can see at night in Cambridge and we made some of our own up!
  3. Colour them in.
  4. Cut out your circle.
  5. Make a hole in the middle of your circle and another piece of paper - carefully! Cut a piece of string or use a split pin to tie the two together.
  6. Decorate the back paper if you like - and spin!
