  • Dark blue, king size flat sheet (two sheets in photo)
  • White craft paint
  • Yellow spray paint



  1. Wash and dry the sheet.
  2. Stretch the sheet between two ladders to be painted.
  3. Dip your fingertips into the paint and then flick the paint onto the sky.
  4. After the paint is dry, turn the sheet upside down and secure it to the ladders.
  5. Spray paint the top of the sheet approximately one third down. This will be the glow of the city when the sheet is hanging right side up.
  6. When the paint is dry, hang the sheet in the classroom using large binder clips or bungee cords from a drop ceiling (ceiling tiles and tracks). Other ceilings may require tacks.
