HOW far away?

We went outside today to mark out the relative distances between the Earth Moon and Sun. Here is a picture of Noah holding the Moon (represented by a poppy seed), Thea holding the Earth (a coriander seed) 14 cm away, and Zeina 40 metres away holding a beach ball for the Sun. As you can see, we can hardly see Zeina. Everyone was surprised at how far away the Sun is!
