We've created many canvases over this last year but never created a canvas that could be seen during the dark of night. Minnie often comments on the glowing stars & how they twinkle so this seemed a perfect way to explore her interest.
She had so much sensory fun with the glitter, sprinkling, rubbing, patting, & pouring it all over the canvas.
Once she was happy with the result, we left the canvas to dry for a few hours, then Minnie added some glow in the dark stars with a little PVA glue. (We picked up the stars from a local toy shop for just 99p)
As she added her stars she began to sing 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star' to herself. (Moments like this just melt my soppy heart.) ;-)
A nice way to investigate the transition between day & night. Could also provide a little reassurance at bedtime if you have a reluctant sleeper.
