Sun, Moon and Stars

This week I had planned to start our study on space and I had so many fun things planned! Unfortunately Emily got the flu so school had to be put on hold until next week.  I found so many awesome printables, ideas ect. that we are actually going to spend the next 3 weeks on space. Week 1: Stars, Moon and Sun

Week 2: Planets

Week 3: Astronauts

To go with our space theme I made a sensory tub for the girls to play with. I got my inspiration from Counting Coconuts and 1+1+1=1. They both made awesome space bins!! I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed filling it.


Here is what I put in it:

Aquarium rocks, glow in the dark stars, black pom poms, black pipe cleaners, star beads, tube of planets (I got these at Toys R Us), glass beads, marbles, and some other glass pieces that have a smooth edge (all from the $ tree). I am going to also add something new each week they play with it. This week I am going to let them play as is. Next week I am going to add some spoons and scoops etc. and the week we study astronauts I am going to add these space astronauts and rockets.

Here are the books we are using this week:
