Have an adult paint the canvas entirely black with the black paint. Let it dry. Have your child use the glitter/silver/sparkly paints and paintbrushes to streak or splatter paint across the black canvas (stars/comets in space). When the paint is dry, have your child stick the glow in the dark stars on the canvas. Find a wall space for hanging, and you have a star scene without the messy clean up on walls or ceilings!
