After reading several books lately about the solar system, Anne-with-an-e stumbled on the idea of "mint planets" in The Secret Life of Food, which is a book overflowing with with fun and creative ideas.
We know it's not done precisely to scale, especially our sun. And, we couldn't get Saturn's mint rings to stay on, so we substituted a dress-up bracelet supported by toothpicks.
And, that pink thing on the far right, just past Pluto (which we know is no longer called a planet ... we just wanted to cover all historical bases)? No, it's not an alien. It's Ramona's snowman.
