You will need:
a cylindrical oatmeal box with a lid a pencil flashlight a thin nail black tape a black pen and scissors
Select a constellation visible in the Northern Hemisphere. Use a pencil to mark each star in the constellation on the box lid. Then, poke a hole for each star using a nail. Write the constellation's name on the side of the box using a pen. Next, cut a hole in the bottom of the box just large enough for a flashlight to fit through from the inside. Put the black tape around any air holes. Put the lid on. Darken the room and project your constellation on the ceiling.
