Observe the night sky and pick out colours. Dip a toothbrush into water and then into paint of appropriate colours.
Over a piece of paper, run the toothbrush across the comb and let the splatter of paint fall onto the paper.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 with different colours, until your child is satisfied with the result.
Talk about the artwork and compare it to the actual night sky. Find similarities and differences.
