What to do

Start by setting up your display background.

We used an A1 sheet of black card from Hobbycraft that we stuck to the wall with VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Squares.

The beauty of using these over pins is that they're removable and peel cleanly off the wall without leaving marks - perfect if you want to avoid damaging your classroom walls by sticking up display after display. 

Hang a Classroom Display Without Damaging the Walls

Once your background is stuck firmly to the wall, cut out your printables and mount them onto cardboard to make them a more sturdy. 

Then stick the printable 'Phases of the Moon' title and the printable Earth to the display with glue as they'll remain fixed in place for the whole activity.

Now to attach the phases of the moon to the display! Stick the soft side of a VELCRO® Brand Stick On Coin (the loop side) to the back of each phase of the moon.

Then stick the scratchy side of a VELCRO® Brand Stick On Coin (the hook side) in position on the background.
