I said, "Sorry, I am NOT buying that many Styrofoam balls. Are you sure you don't just have to do the planets?".
He thought that yes, maybe it was just the planets and the sun.
Well as life goes, we forgot all about it. YIKES. This is project is now due tomorrow and we have no 3D model.
I did a quick Internet search (thank goodness for the Internet) and found this great website Crafts For Kids that had wonderful instructions for making a 3D model.
So I bought the Styrofoam balls and we got out the paint and the toothpicks and the brushes and wooden dowels.......
