This activity not only promotes imaginative play but it also helps develop fine motor skills and promotes scientific curiosity.

Go on a moonwalk
Looking to inspire your little ones’ love for space? Then how about taking them on a moonwalk in your very own backyard?
All you’ll need is a space that you can pretend is the moon’s surface and some cardboard boxes that you can transform into spacecraft. You can even get creative and make astronaut helmets from paper plates; the possibilities are endless!
It’s an activity that’s fun for the whole family and will instill a sense of wonder and curiosity about the cosmos in the kids.
Who knows, you may even inspire the next budding astronomer or astronaut!
Let the kids stargaze
All you need is a clear night and a good sky view – from the backyard, a park, or even higher ground if available.
Look up and see what you can spot, whether it’s the Big Dipper or Orion’s Belt. Try using a telescope or binoculars for a closer look, and talk with your little ones about what they’re seeing.
You could even make it a fun game, trying to spot as many constellations as possible.
This activity isn’t only enjoyable, it’s educational too – it can teach kids about astronomy, mythology, and more.
So bundle up on a fantastic night, lay down a blanket, and explore the beautiful cosmos with your children.
