Starry, starry night

Constellation play

Nature Watch have created cardboard medallions with holes to represent each individual star in a constellation. When light shines through the medallion, the image of the constellation appears. Constellations included are: Ursa Major (Big Dipper), Orion (the hunter), Leo (Lion), Pisces (fish), Canis Major (dog). Great for children ages 7 & up.
