Space is one of our favorite themes that we always seem to come back to. There are so many activities that you can do with it!
Lately, we have been making wreaths to decorate the house with. We love having them around the house! Today we have a space-themed wreath that is tons of fun to make and have around the house.
This is a great addition to any space themed activity you might be doing.
We looked through the How Many Planets Circle the Sun?: And Other Questions about Our Solar System (Good Question!) book about our solar system. We talked about what you would find in space. We talked about planets and stars and how may different types of planets could be out there that we just can’t see!
This lead us into making our fun space themed wreaths!
What You Need For This Activity:
- paper plate
- black paint
- black glitter paint
- cotton ball
- white cardstock
- yellow glitter scrapbook paper
- oil pastels
- small star punch
- large star punch
- 5/8 inch circle shape punch
- 1 1/2 inches circle punch
How To Make the Space Theme Wreaths
We used cotton balls to paint the wreath using black paint and black glitter paint. We mixed the two paints together to make the wreath have a fun black shiny color. After we painted the plates we set them aside for a day to dry.
We used one of the big circle punches to see how big of an area we needed to color for our planets.
We use the oil pastels to color our planets. We used different colors to make different themes for the planets. It was fun to see how creative everyone was.
Then we punched out the planets. You did not always get the punch lined up just right but that made it part of the fun. We used two sizes of punches to make two different sizes of planets.
Then we punched out the stars. We used two sizes of punches again and the yellow glitter scrapbook paper.
Finally, we glued the stars and planets on the wreath.
