  • Did you use three strips of paper or only two? It looks like two in the paper, but the document has three. Please explain. Thanks!

    • Hi Lauren!
      We used just one because we are out of town at my parent’s house and they didn’t have cardstock. The shorter strip was the best option with thinner paper. If you have thicker paper, you could use the second strip to make the distance between the sun and the earth longer. It’s in the pack just to give you a bit more flexibility in how you put it together. Hope that helps!
