25 Space Activities for Preschoolers
Looking for space activities for your preschooler’s outer space theme or unit study? Here’s a list of our favorite activities that work on fine motor skills, gross motor skills, letter recognition, counting, artistic expression, and more.
We spent almost an entire month on our homeschool space unit. I feel like I’ve seen every space activity out there at this point. Probably not true, but I put together a list of 25 of our top picks!
These are perfect for preschoolers and kindergarteners, and helps them learn through play. I highly recommend adding elements of play in every unit study you choose.
