Space Exploration

This session, the 6-8 year old group has the chance to learn about Space Exploration and Engineering.  Only problem is that they are during the same hour!  This made me wonder, what can I find online about space exploration that’s free or low cost?

My first stop is usually Pinterest (seriously, I love this website).

One of the first things I came across a set of free worksheets that can be found {Here} and coloring pages that can be found {Here}.

Next I came across an art project that could work for younger kids and includes upcycling the cardboard from a frozen pizza and Dollar Store craft items (glitter glue and pom-poms).  You can find the full instructions {Here}!

You can even bring the learning into snack time like Amy Hudson over at Creative Kid Snacks did {Here}!

If the weather is nice, take your lesson outside with sidewalk chalk like Kimberly from Natural Beach Living did {Here}.

Hopefully this will give you some ideas for your little Space Explorer.
