The night sky is such an endlessly fascinating subject and I had so much fun sharing ideas with you this week. I've rounded up 10 more fun ideas from some of my favorite kids activities blogs (and when I say favorite, I should let you know that I have hundreds of favorite blogs). If you're looking to extend your study of the night sky, or just looking for a great family activity, this list should have you covered.
- Play and learn with a homemade constellation geoboard from Babble Dabble Doo.
