Make a Bedroom Planetarium!
If you're lucky enough to live near a museum or a university with a planetarium, you'll definitely want to take your child for a visit to explore outer space with him. But you don't need to pay the price of admission for this delightful constellation craft…you'll just need an old round oatmeal container, a flashlight, and a few other common materials. Help your first grader learn to recognize constellations with this fun and easy activity. Then, on the next clear night, take a walk and see if he can find them in the sky!
