When children begin to learn about the concept of the solar system, understanding the galaxy and the fact that planets orbit the sun, can be a difficult and overwhelming idea to grasp at first. Start by cutting strips of masking tape, and labelling one with “Sun” and the rest with the name of one planet each. Then, paint the individual balls of foam if you desire – this will make the solar system model more visually appealing. Once this is done, proceed to label all the foam balls with their appropriate masking tape tags, according to the planets they will represent in the model.


Finally, you may choose to attach a pin to the top of the Sun, and tie a string so you can hang the model up in a classroom, or your child’s bedroom. However, concepts can be developed and their understanding can be boosted by helping them build a model of the solar system, which will explain the planetary system to them in a demonstrative way, in addition to proving a fun activity for the classroom or for home. Use yellow for the sun (the biggest ball of the lot), blue and green for the Earth, red for Mars, and so on. Repeat the same process with the rest of the skewers and balls, in accordance with the correct planetary order: Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
