Last year, the little guy and I learned all about space and shared lots of preschool monthly theme ideas. And we both had a blast – literally! 

We learned about the sun, moon, and stars. We talked about all the different plants. Oh, and of course we can’t forget about astronauts, gravity, and rocket ships!

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids. 

This theme was all kinds of fun for my preschooler and I’m willing to bet it would be for yours too!

This month’s Teacher Guide was full of planet invitation to create process art experiences. One of the activities that we shared was this Preschool Space Crafts Earth Collage Invitation to Create Process Art Experience.

We used torn up bits of paper to create an earth collage and of course we talked about this very special planet.

We also did some fun process art using sand. You can read more about our Mars Invitation to Create Process Art Experience.

There’s just something about messy art and little kids. They’re seriously in love with it! And you know what? That’s totally alright.

And as if making planet art for Earth and Mars wasn’t enough, here’s a look at our Venus Invitation to Create Process Art Experience. For this invitation to create, we used paint and cotton balls.

The favorite this month though was this Galaxy Glitter Space Art for Preschoolers. Even I loved this one! It ended up being so gorgeous and it really did look like a galaxy. The pink and blue paint swirled together and the glitter mixed in. I still love looking at it!  

We definitely had an out of this world time with our space activities, don’t you think?
