Did you know that astronauts drove on the moon? During Apollo 15, 16 and 17 missions, NASA space crews piloted their Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) through the cratered terrain of the Moon, carrying tools and scientific equipment to collect lunar samples. The battery-powered four-wheeler car was built by a group of engineers who were part of General Motors Corporation, an automaker known for building a variety of road cars we see today … including the Corvette!
With this simple DIY, you’ll use your imagination to explore your everyday surroundings through an astronaut’s lens. Step outside to examine the scenery and begin your collection of smooth stone specimens, as if you were traveling through uncharted territory in your own LRV. After you have gathered enough stones, return to “base camp” to turn them into colorful keepsakes to take back for your family and friends to planet Earth.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Acrylic paint set
Total time: 30-45 minutes
1. Set your paint palette on a cardboard plate and make sure you have a glass of water nearby, so you can easily clean your brushes between colors.
2. It’s time to get creative! Make a list of positive words or your favorite inspirational quotes to paint on your stones.
3. Keep decorating with space inspired details like stars, planets and spaceships, now sprinkle with glitter for a galactic sparkle!
4. Once dried, display your stones for the whole family to enjoy!
