Now that the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer, we’re looking for more ways to keep our little guy occupied after the sun goes down.

Give the bottle at least 24 hours to dry or until the paper feels firm. Susie Lépine - Susie Lépine a partagé une photo de FamilyFun. Stargazing With Kids - Free Fun Constellation Sewing Cards.

Night Sky Activities for Preschool: Galaxy Slime - Twodaloo

My kiddos and their classmates are really into sensory exploration right now, and the starry night sky lends itself to so many amazing sensory activities. Today we delved into the world of slime and gak for the first time, and I’m SO glad we did- the kids played with this for hours, and Daddy even joined in the fun! I can’t wait to take this to school with us to see how the kids’ classmates react- I’m betting they’ll love it just as much as we do! Since we’ve been studying the night sky at our cooperative preschool, the twins have been talking about it quite a bit at home.

И готовимся к этому событию тщательно - все по настоящему. Первым делом нужно построить что? Космический аппарат, то есть ракету - куда же без нее? У нас есть пара игрушечных космонавтов, так что мы их в космос и запустим. Ну и сами с ними, конечно попутешествуем. Все предельно просто. Рулончики от туалетной бумаги - универсальная вещь. Из 4-го сделала нос, тоже надрезав в длину и скрутив конусом. Добавила ножки-держатели из картона, и наш первый пилот уже стал проходить проверку. А главный помощник наконец-то дождался своей очереди. Дело нешуточное - покраска, просушка. Ну вот, вроде все готово. Мы только начинаем - впереди нас ждет освоение неведомых планет, строительство космических станций, изучение ресурсов, а если повезет, даже флоры и фауны...
