Fruity planets!

We were trying to get our heads around just how massive the solar system is today. We used various types of fruit (a tiny peppercorn up to a large melon) to represent the different planets in our solar system and then we went outside to see what the relative distances from the sun looked like. Have a look at our pictures and videos below!
