Space Gravity

Suspend objects from the ceiling of your classroom using fishing line. This will help your children to simulate the gravity in space.
Stars in a Jar (or Bag)
Submitted by Nancy
Put syrup, glitter, blue water, and star confetti in a baby food jar or Zip Loc Bag and glue the top shut. Your children will love this suspended space station.
Astronaut Food
Submitted by Lori
Split a package of instant pudding into about four servings. Put each serving into a Zip Loc Bag. Add the amount of milk that the package says to add. Next have your children squeeze and shake the bag until it starts to thicken. You can either eat it now or put it in the fridge through naptime. When your children eat it cut off one of the corners and have them suck it through the corner.
Me on the Moon
Submitted by Betty
For a souvenir of your space week, find a picture of an astronaut. Make a copy of the picture. Cut out the face of the astronaut and use a picture of a child and make another copy. Now it looks like your student is on the moon. Do this for all of your children. They'll love it .
Space Ships
Submitted by Tina
Make great space ships for your children to play with. Put two Styrofoam bowls together so that the tops are together. Cover the two bowls with aluminum foil. You can then decorate them with stickers and other things to make them look more real. Your children will love playing with these during space week.
Space Shuttle
Submitted by Heather
Make a space shuttle in your dramatic play area. Get a large box (rifregerator) and two smaller ones (Oven). Put them together to form a space shuttle. You can use a third box to form the point of the shuttle. Paint the boxes white or drape white sheets over them (cheaper). Finally, cut out a place for the children to get into the box on the bottom of the box. You can cut stars out of the top of the box so that the children will see stars when they look up. For added effect give the children space uniforms (white sheets and helmets (5 gallon ice cream buckets)).
