DIY Magnetic Solar System

Last week I and my daughter made this DIY Magnetic Solar System for our Solar System Playdate.

Supplies Needed:-

  • White Paper
  • Crayons
  • Sketches
  • Various circled shape objects
  • magnets
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Easel
  • Dry Erase Marker


  • Draw sun and Circles in various sizes on a white paper randomly. These circles are our planets. We were following the Solar System book by Jill Mcdonald which includes Pluto as a planet describing it as a dwarf planet very far away from the sun. So we planned to include Pluto too in our Solar System.

  • I asked my daughter to color it using the crayons.

  • I outlined the artwork with a black sketch to give it a nice finishing.
  • Cut the planets and the sun carefully using scissors.

  • Β I had a broken magnetic board at home which had two magnetic strips backside. I used this magnetic strips for this craft work.
  • I cut the magnetic strips into small pieces and glued them to the sun and the planets using hot glue.
  • On an easel, draw the orbits and place the sun and the other planets in its orbits.
  • We did not include the Pluto planet because it would be confusing the kids.

  • Our moveable DIY Β magnetic solar system is ready for our Solar System Playdate.
