Interplanet Janet (actually, Katie).

For Public Schools Week, Katie had to create a model of the solar system. I was so proud that Katie wanted to create an original model and not just buy a kit. She also insisted on doing the work herself. (My main job was keeping clay and paint off her clothes and the floor.) We bought the supplies on a Saturday, and then on Sunday, she got to work.

Step 1: Knead the clay (while enjoying a sucker!)

Step 2: Sketch the planets and their orbits

Step 3: Sculpt the planets

Step 4: Pose for a goofy photo

Step 5: Paint the planets

Step 6: Let the planets dry

Step 7: Admire the finished product!
