The girls and I came up with a little craft to go along with yesterday’s Carbon Star activity.
Here, the heart glitter represents carbon and the little glitter sparkles represent oxygen. They bond together and create carbon dioxide. In a carbon star this creates its red glow.
Whatcha need: sparkly chunky glitter glue, ribbon, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, and a plastic lid.
Squeeze a big glob of glitter glue into the center of the star.
