Introduction: How to Make 3D Solar System Project for Kids

About: I am housewife and I have a lovely daughter. I love to spend my time with making crafts. I am Hobbyist.I love hummingbirds.

I made this solar system 3d model for my kid. So, she can understand better and can remember all the planets name. It can be good for school science project also.It's a good 3d model for classroom or homeschool project It's easy and fun. Anyone can make it at home. In this tutorial, I will show you step by step prosses. Let’s get started.

For this project what you need:

1) Foam balls (Different size for all the planets and the sun)

2) Black Foamboard

3) Acrylic paint

4) Hot glue

5) foam sheet

6) white chalk

Step 1: Making Planets

I choose different size of foam balls, the bigger one for the sun. For painting the sun I used acrylic color and painted with the paintbrush, for texture I used tissue paper. All the planets are hand painted. And for Saturn ring, I used foam sheet and colored it with acrylic paint and glue it to the Saturn.

Step 2: Finishing Solar System

Now I cut the foam board (11x20 inch) 1 piece, (3x11 inch) 2 pieces, (3x20 inch) 2 pieces. Then join together as shown in the video and make it like box Now paint with acrylic color using tissue paper so it will create a texture. Then take a toothbrush dip into white paint and sprinkle with your finger for more realistic look. Then using chalk draw the line of the orbit of the planets. And then stick all the Planets and the Sun using hot glue. Now your 3D Solar system is done.

    I loved this so much. But i can't find different sized foam balls, so do you think clay would work too?

    We found them at Michael's craft store, if you have one nearby. If not, model magic might work.
