Space Day

We soared to the moon for space day in our room! Our little astronauts learned about outer space, rocket ships, the moon and more! 

 We made these "Space Books" that taught us all about Space! It took a few days to complete but the children had a blast making them! 

Of course Space Day wouldn’t be complete without an out of this world craft so our little ones made astronauts walking on the moon! They even made stars (using a tooth brush and flicking the paint off with their finger). They even crumbled aluminum to make that textured look for the moon.  

My favorite craft has to be this foot rocket ship craft. I started with a black canvas. Then we painted their little feet silver and put their footprint onto black cardstock. Once dried, we cut out their footprint and added it to the star speckled canvas. The kids decorated their rocket ships with some cool finishing touches. Totally out of this world!    

They also made a rocket ship using all different shapes. Great review for them!

Here's a cool one I did with my summer camp kids from a few years back. Pom-pom aliens! 

How about these cool rocket boosters we used let our little ones try on in the classroom!? So cool! My son didn't want to take his off he loved them so much. 

Here are some really awesome things other classes did for Space Day!

    If you have other kid-friendly craft tutorials, we'd love for you to submit them. Thanks for a great project idea!
