Astronomy Lessons

I had fun today. We got a pack of glow-in-the-dark stars today for Bayleigh. I then went online and printed off a pic of common constellations. I then started to place them on her ceiling in (approx) locations. I only had enough for Ursa Major (yes I did all of it, not just the dipper part), Ursa Minor, Cygnus, Cassiopeia, and Hercules. Part of Hercules is obscured by the light, but it's only 4 stars. Plan to get (a lot) more and do her whole ceiling. Already quizzing her on their names and she's doing good. Thinking on maybe taking her outside on a clear night and seeing if she can find them for real once she knows them better.
