Hi everyone

 

can anyone suggest any good ideas for making moon surface? we are going to turn our roleplay area into a space rocket after half term or something along them lines and wanted a few ideas. Also i want to try and keep the roleplay and link it into christmas some obviously developing as i go along. Our main theme in foundation stage after half term is colour, light and sound, any ideas?

 

thanks kate xx :o

how about, using egg boxes, slightly dampened, turned upside down and the segments sort of squashed in - that would make a sort of crater effect, you could group a few together or to make larger craters just use soaked paper and pva to make raised paper mache circles. You could cover your layout then in "white" newspaper or kitchen roll and pva+water to stick it all down then white wash it with watered down white paint adding darker shades of greys .

 

Don't suppose the children could walk on it though if that is what you wanted it for - how about making some tye dye fabric, using an old white bed sheet and black dye?

How about buying some black fabric or dying your own and sprinkling a bit of silver glitter. I seem to remember we also once used the back of our small world play mats which were black rubber

 

hope that helps

we used a grey flannel sheet we had died ourselves and some black we had been given, under it we had bubble wrap and paper etc to give it an interesting 'bumpiness' , children loved the way it popped as they walked or jumped on it.
