Mission: During a spacewalks, astronauts need some serious dexterity and hand-eye coordination to carefully complete tasks, all while wearing bulky gloves to protect them from the harsh space environment.  In this challenge we want to see your artistic skills. Draw, paint, or colour a picture while wearing your space gloves. 

Film it, or snap a picture, and tag it on social media with #trainlikeanastronaut.


Set-up: Put on two pairs of gloves: the first should be tight to your hands, and the second should be bulky, like thick winter gloves. Grab some paper and your choice of colourful writing utensils to create your picture. Time to make some art!
