Time for another phase in our moon activity series! Several Traditions have names for the full moon of each month. The most familiar is the Harvest Moon, occurring in September (occasionally in October). Each month’s moon has a special name. You can read about them here and here.
I cut out 12 large circles in a few colors and each month Kiddo will make a moon reflecting that month’s traditional name.
As you can see, I had to let go of any preconceived notions I had as to what a Harvest Moon might look like! Also, he used so much glue it took three days to dry!Reading Assignment (affiliate links):
Long Night’s Moon A nice intro to the full moon names.
The Birth of the Moon I loved this book which is a subtle introduction to the way the moon reflects the sun’s light.
