Outta This World

This week was space week at daycare. While most of our activities were pretending about space - letting the kids lead the play... - aliens, rocket ships, etc. - we did do a couple projects that turned out really cute. We made spaceships from bowls; We made alien antennae headbands;

We created our own galaxies - with planets, and glow-in-the-dark shooting stars by marble painting;

(ugh - kinda blurry - sorry...)

We worked together to make fun alien pictures from paint blobs!

This week was a blast with some of the active games and activities we did, too. We practiced "space screaming" - no atmosphere to carry sound waves means no sound... Silent Screams! Best Thing Ever!

We threw moon rocks (wads of paper) since everything feels so light in space.

We spun around and around as we traveled through the room - like satellites.

And we did really a lot of blasting off! 3 2 1 BLAST OFF!

Super Fun Week!
