Easy to Make Night Sky Wreath

We have been doing a lot of looking at the night sky for the last few months. It has been wonderful to get out and just spend the time watching.

It is amazing how many different things you can see in the sky. I also love it when we can take something we are doing and make a craft to match up to it.

Several years ago we made a space wreath and it has been a favorite. This time we made a night sky wreath.

This is a fun addition to any space theme!

We read the book A Child’s Introduction to the Night Sky over the last few weeks. I love that it has so many great night sky and space learning themes.

And this was a great book and craft for us to do.

How we made the night sky wreaths

You start by painting the wreath. This time we used watercolors. They dry really fast and makes it easier to finish the project. You can make the black color as dark or light as you want.

After we did the black watercolor we pulled out some glitter watercolors we have and added a little glitter around the wreath.

We punched out a moon with the silver glitter cardstock .

Then we started punching stars. I let them punch the start because it gives them some deep pressure in their hands. Itis great for the sensory seekers to do this.

You can see the three sizes of stars that we used. I love using the mix of sizes to show that not all stars are the same size in the sky.

Now we glued on the moon. We picked the moon to be at the top of the wreath.

Then we placed small dabs of glue around the wreath to place our stars. We did this because some of the stars and small and hard to put glue on.
