Show your dad that you think he's out of this world by creating his own galaxy! Well, a galaxy card that is, with his very own "DAD" constellation!
Construction paper has a more faded look. If you prefer a darker card, try black posterboard or black cardstock.
Fold paper into a card. Use a paintbrush to splatter paint onto the front of the card. Do this by dipping the toothbrush bristles into the paint then dabbing off the excess onto a paper towel.
Test first by holding the bristles over the paper and running your finger across the bristles. Do this with blue, then purple and finally with white.
Keep splattering until your are happy with how your galaxy looks!
Use the handle end of a paintbrush (this is best for larger paper like construction paper) or a toothpick to add the constellation. Just create a "connect the dot" for the word "DAD".
Use a white paint pen to connect the dots. Finally, add more stars with the handle end of your paintbrush or your toothpick.
