Start to make the different planets and the sun in order to build the solar system. To make the spheres use the polystyrene balls. To make a more realistic surface, use a newspaper glued with a mixture of water and Pritt White Glue. Then cover the surface of all the planets with the newspaper and mix it with the help of a brush.
Once all the planets are built, let them dry and paint them according to their characteristic colors.
To make the mobile, do a hole in the center of each planet with the screws and pass a fishing line.
Tie the fishing lines to a wooden set. When the representation is finished, observe and play with the planets of the solar system.
