Like most people I’m pretty sad to see the summer go and if you live in the UK like me then having the clock change hanging over you is nothing to look forward to (does the hollow laugh thing about the ‘extra hour in bed’) One good thing though about the shorter days is the chance to see more of the night sky, which I adore. Stargazing is something that I want to encourage in my own kids and with that in mind I thought I’d share some great constellation activities for kids.
First up is a free printable from Kids Activities Blog with these fun sewing constellation cards. Life With Moore Babies shares this gorgeous way to use watercolours with a constellation hunt that I know my son would love. If your kids enjoy decorating things then they’ll love to make this pretty cardboard telescope for Kids Activities Blog where you can also download star charts for them to look at through indoors or out.
Creekside learning shows how she taught the contellations to her kids by making some constellation art outside using chalk, while Motherhood on a Dime shares the super kid friendly idea of doing constellation activities with marshmallows. I fancy that one too!!
Along the bottom row I loved this simple sewing idea from Creative Family Fun that is easy enough for kids to do and these free printable constellation cards from Teach Beside Me that I think would be nice for small kids to colour.
Finally we have No Time For Flashcards fun activity for making your own constellation!
Which of these do you like the most or if you have your own constellation activities let me know below!
