Moon Activities for Kids
So many kids have a great deal of curiosity about what’s out there in space. My three year old has just started to chatter a lot about the solar system, so I thought it would be fun to pull out a few of our moon activities and projects to keep him occupied.

Create a homemade moon phase puzzle. I love how this includes self-corrected learning and shows both the waxing and waning phases.
Make a moon viewer to project phases of the moon in a dark room. This is great for independent play, too.
Mark the moon phases on a calendar with office supply stickers. Cheap and easy, plus it works those fine motor skills!
Get crafty and decorate moons based on traditional moons, like the Harvest Moon or the Strawberry Moon.
Make moon craters in a dish of flour with pebbles and marbles. Yes, it’s messy, but that’s what vacuums are for!
