This weekend we spent the afternoon creating a space moon scene for our new PJ Masks Super Moon Adventures Fortress Playset. As you know from our previous reviews we are huge PJ Masks fans! I do like to do crafting with L now that she wants to have a go. It was great fun! Along with the Super Moon Adventure Playset, we received the PJ Masks character’s, Catboy. Gekko and Owlette on their Moon Rovers and a bunch of crafty stuff to build our own space scene.
I added a few bits of our own things that we had at home. Crafting is all about using up the empty toilet and kitchen roll tubes! Now I’m not a Blue Peter expert, as we didn’t have any stick back plastic! But with some paint and PVA glue we created a fun scene that is still taking up my kitchen table.
Things you need to create a space moon scene
- Black paper for space
- A large piece of cardboard/canvas for the backdrop
- Silver crepe paper
- Rough bubbly packaging paper/card for moon surface
- Kitchen roll and toilet roll holders
- A4 size piece of card
- PVA glue
- Water colour paints – blue, silver, yellow, orange
- Glow in the dark stickers
- Moon rocks (coloured gravel)
- Blue, red and green tissue paper
How to make the space moon scene
We started off fixing the black paper to the canvas and then decorating the black paper with the glow in the dark stickers. Then using the silver crepe paper we stuck it below on the canvas for the moon surface backdrop.
Next up we painted our rockets. The kitchen roll holder was painted silver and stuck to the blue painted A4 card. L wanted a rocket blasting into space! It was warm and sunny so we left them to dry outside. When dry the rocket scene was stuck onto the space backdrop.
We then placed the rough bubbly packing paper as our moon surface onto the table with the space backdrop behind.
L came up with the idea of wanting each of the PJ Masks team to have a spot. So we used the
Last of all we placed the moon rocks all over the moon surface and created our very own Super Moon Space Scene.
We are thoroughly enjoying playing with the Super Moon Adventures Fortress. It comes with Luna Girl and Catboy with a moon shooter and arrow. You can clip the characters into the gravity belts and watch them float in zero gravity as they do battle by moving the lever. The loser falls down a trap door into a crystal icy cage that snaps shut.
Separately you can buy each of the characters with their moon rover. They are larger than the normal characters and will clip easily onto their moon rover bikes.
