Looking for space crafts to do with your preschooler? Here’s a list of the best space-themed crafts for your homeschool unit study or space-themed party.
Crafts and art projects make up a large portion of our homeschooling. Nothing helps a child exercise their brain and their fine motor skills quite like art.
I find value in many forms of art, from crafts with specific outcomes, to open-ended process art. Some children will show a preference for one or the other, so I usually advise people to try to do a mix of both! Plus, they both have their own set of benefits.
Below you’ll find some craft inspiration for your space unit! Some process art, others craft projects.
