The space theme can be a difficult concept for young kids to understand. Browse through this collection of crafts, activities, printables, games, and toys to find the perfect addition to your solar system week.
Space Theme for preschool and kindergarten
Our solar system is vast and full of mystery. Exciting events, like the upcoming solar eclipse, bring more questions for little kids. We are firm believers that young children learn best through play. So we found several ways to encourage space education through crafts & activities. Playing with planet printables and crafting spaceships will help their understanding of the great unknown.
