1. Either print out this template or use something large and round (such as a plate or bucket lid) and trace the circle onto your piece of card stock, cardboard or paper.

2. Have an adult help you mix white paint and flour together. You can use about two parts paint to one part flour.

3. Paint and (and re-repaint) the Moon’s surface with the flour/paint mixture until you decide you are done.

4. Use some craft sticks or other tools to smooth out the surface just a bit. (This will help the craters of the Moon become more visible.

5. Let your Moon dry.
