One of the most interesting topics for elementary kids is definitely the galaxy and all things about space – which is a good thing because they remain curious and knowledgeable! Now, your job as a parent is to teach them more about this topic but in a more interesting and fun way. With that said, I have here 11 amazing astronaut and space activities for kids (especially perfect for elementary school)!

9. Kids Crafts: Solar System

Welcome back to this week’s Kids Crafts – our very own paper mache Solar System – ok, so it is “only” the sun, the earth and the moon, but it is a start and something to add to over time. We actually made it , mainly because the lovely people from Cubbykit sent it to us to make (more about them at the end)! It has taken as a while to “get round” to doing it – basically the Easter holidays – I think any paper mache craft is perfect for the holidays – you have much more time actually craft, more time to let things dry and then paint.. as well as some time to enjoy it! These make a great Crafts for Boys contribution too!
