We began with Jupiter as a result of I used to be speaking about how one can see each Jupiter and Venus proper now, simply, shortly after sundown, with my older children. (When you reside within the northern hemisphere, search for the 2 brilliant planets after sundown within the western sky.)

My preschooler joined us whereas we talked about how some superior Jupiter Enjoyable Info (see under), and then I pulled out the play dough. I restricted the colours to pink, orange, and yellow. He fortunately designed 4 totally different “Jupiters” after which — on a special day — requested to repeat the complete exercise!
