This space helmet would be a great addition to a unit study about space for your preschooler, kindergartner, or in your homeschool.

Crafts are a wonderful hands-on addition when teaching your kid.   Adding a craft they made with their own two hands makes information become less of a fact floating in space (Joke intended?) and more of a memory.

Hands-on projects connect the facts with something tangible and fun for our kids.

When I make crafts with my kids, We talk about fun facts relating to the craft we’re making(I have added some space facts below to get you started).

Adding jokes to your crafts is another engaging way to help your kids relate information.  I added a few jokes to get you started. Then keep reading; you don’t want to miss the freebie I have for you at the end of the post.

I like to add little things like did you know to add some learning to our crafts.  Everything can be a teaching moment even as adults, we are always still learning.

The key is to keep it simple and not go overboard.  A few facts here and there mixed with jokes and a craft is an easy and engaging way to share fun facts.

We have a lot of fun space crafts you can check out and try this sun and moon.
