Excited to share this adorable and simple craft for kids…to kick of our Space Week as part of our Mother Hen’s Summer. My kids have loved learning and reading books this summer. This week we read “Stargazers” from Gail Gibbons. I love all of Gail Gibbons’ books.
After we read the book we talked more about constellations. We even went on a constellations hunt in the sky…looking for some famous constellations…and making some of our own. To make these cool constellations…all you need is:
-Mini Star Punch (star stickers work too…but its nice to be able to move them around to create your constellation before gluing the stars down)
-Chalk or a white crayon
-Bright yellow paper
After learning about constellations, let your child have fun moving the stars around to create his/her own. This was the fun part…thinking up fun constellations we could see in the sky.
After you place your stars to create the constellations, glue down the stars. You can then connect the stars with the chalk. Or you can use a white crayon.
It is fun to see the before and after…after you connect the dots.
Of course my map and state loving boy had to make a UTAH constellation. States are fun to make into these constellations.
Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned for more fun Space crafts and Ideas this week!
