For these, I cut and laminated the constellation cards, and then I had the kids paint on typing paper with our new Kwik Sticks:
The Pencil Grip Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint, Super Quick Drying, 12 Pack (TPG-602)
I love these things-paint that dries quickly with a lot less mess!  Anyway, after the paint dried, I helped them tape their masterpieces around their paper towel tubes.  I think they all disappeared before I could get pictures, but they turned out really neat!

I also checked this book out of the library:
Astronomy and Space, Book of IL:

And finally, this song isn’t new to us, but if you like stuff about this planets, check out this super cute (and catchy) song and video.

The hubby’s birthday card:
I used some Lawn Fawn stamps and papers, and colored the Bigfoot with a combination of Sharpies and Copics with Wink of Stella on top.  I also stamped “Have an unbelievable birthday” on the inside of the card.

Pinterest Thursday-Space Crafts Pt. 1

15 Sep

Last week, I spent some time prepping a few fun space crafts and games for the kids.  Here are the first two, and I will share the rest next week.
Constellation Sewing Cards:

I laminated them, and then pre-punched the holes for ease of use.  I had never made any type of sewing cards before, and I was surprised how much all the kids enjoyed these!
*disclaimer-only The Girlio had a sharp needle.  The Boy had a blunt needle, and The Little Guy had a plastic needle. 🙂

Galaxy Game
This game is set up similar to Candy Land, but we changed the rules as it was just too hard to win.  We made it that you didn’t have to go backwards unless you got the spaceship, and everyone had a lot more fun-and less frustration.  The graphics are great, and I really like that it is the size of an 8 1/2×11 sheet so that I didn’t have to tape a board together.  Best of all, it’s free!  I laminated the board, and also all the pieces.  Fun stuff!
