Moon and Stars Activities for Kids

It was very tough to choose which activities to feature from our Discover and Explore night sky themed linky.  Within each individual post there were so many wonderful ways to help kids learn more about the moon, stars, and night sky. Today I’m sharing five activities that I definitely want to try. If you haven’t had a chance to look through each one of the night sky posts shared, don’t forget to go back and check them out. They are terrific!

  1. Thank you for featuring Sorting Sprinkles’ constellation lacing activity. It’s always great to see my posts featured seeing how everyone comes up with such great ideas. I’ll be going through all the posts myself to see what we’ll be doing next year when we re-explore the theme since Adrian loved space so much! It was a great Discover & Explore theme for sure.

      You are very welcome! It loved your whole space series, so it was hard to choose just one task to feature. Thanks for joining in the link up.

  2. Thanks for featuring our Watercolor Constellation Hunt!

  3. I’m bummed i missed this theme, I had ideas but no time to get my act together with my youngest. i’m working on a ‘nature’ post though. Got the supplies ready for when she gets home from school 🙂
