These outer space crafts and activities help kids learn about the sun, moon, rockets, comets and shooting stars. They’re most suitable for kids in Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade.
Space Crafts for Kids
I don’t know about you, but personally I find craft templates to be a life saver when it comes to planning thematic units! They’re low prep, help kids develop their scissor skills and can be completed with everyday craft materials. I’ve created a set of five fun space crafts, which are perfect to use when introducing outer space to students. Each craft comes with a selection of worksheet activities to help develop research and writing skills too.
You can check out some of the activities below.
Sun Craft and Worksheets
Moon Craft and Worksheets
Rocket Craft and Worksheets
This craft includes a bonus creative writing worksheet which prompts kids to consider where they’d travel if they got to go to outer space!
Comet Craft and Worksheets
Shooting Star Craft and Worksheets
Instead of a labeling activity, the shooting star comes with a fun creative writing prompt. So kids can imagine what they’d wish for if they saw a shooting star! I’ve been lucky enough to see a few shooting stars. Here’s hoping my wishes will one day come true! 🌠
I love the NASA website Space Place for researching space facts for kids. So be sure to check that out if you haven’t already.
