Back to school is so close! There are only a few weeks until the big day. So, I wanted to make a few fun back-to-school activities for my kiddos to do.

We are starting homeschool preschool next month. So, I am trying to do planned activities to get him use to a schedule of things to do.

We did space week last week. You can check that all out HERE.

This week is our Back 2 School week. We will be focusing on books about back to school, activities to help with feelings and crafts that help learn about school.

Monday’s activities are:

The Get the Bus to School Road Puzzle is really simple. And it takes little prep. I whipped this out in 2 minutes or less. The less prep the better, right?! You can have your kiddo do this activity while you’re prepping a snack or lunch.

16 Space Activities for Preschoolers

These 16 Space Activities were so fun to do with my son and daughter! It was a week full of books, crafts and activities!

We’ve been having so much fun with our space activities here at home; we wanted to share it with you! We’ve had some space adventures I will remember forever (pretending to be astronauts who discovered a new planet, meeting aliens, and seeing shooting stars). I just love my kids’ imaginations. And it brought out the kid-at-heart in me.

With the solar eclipse approaching next month, I thought that if we read books and did activities about space, my kids would get more excited about the eclipse. So, I developed a space theme to use as a guide for the week. The format is: Read, Make, Do, Play. Everything we have planned is listed on the FREE Space Week Printable!

If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen some of the space week activities I’ve done with my kiddos. But, I am going to lay out everything we did here in one post.

Read on to see our Space Week fun!

Solar System for Preschoolers

Solar System for Preschoolers - Pinterest

Make this Solar System for Preschoolers and have your preschooler take the astronaut on a planet adventure! All it takes is a few items you have laying around the house!

We have been doing Space Week at our house. We took a 3-day break from it (you know, mom life. It happens). But, we continued the out-of-this-world fun yesterday by making an interactive Solar System for Preschoolers! Now, my kiddos get to learn about the solar system and move a little astronaut to each planet as I read a solar system book to them!

My husband said, “That’s a giant astronaut!” I giggled, “Well, if I made it to scale, he’d be a tiny dot.” My daughter keeps calling the astronaut a baby astronaut. So, I think it’s toddler-approved.  It’s just for some learning fun anyway.

Below I’m sharing what I used to make it and how.

Since there is a solar eclipse happening next month, I decided to have a space week with my little ones!

I thought that if we read books and did activities about space, they would get more excited about the eclipse. So, I developed a space theme to use as a guide for the week. I will make a printable for you to use and put it up once all of the activities have been posted here on the blog.

Today’s agenda is:

For other space activity ideas, I made a Pinterest board. If ever an activity doesn’t fit into your schedule, pull from this board to replace it: Preschool Space Theme.

DIY Solar Eclipse Viewer for Kids

DIY Solar Eclipse Viewer for Kids.

Make this DIY Solar Eclipse Viewer using supplies you have around the house. And then, on Aug. 21, 2017 you can view the eclipse safely with your family.

When I found out that there is going to be a total solar eclipse across the United States, I got so excited!

A total solar eclipse across the United States doesn’t happen very often. The last one was February 26, 1979. So, you don’t want to miss this one!

Can you see why I’m so excited?! I remember seeing a partial solar eclipse, when I was a kid. And that was awesome! So, I can only imagine this!

The moment I found out, I told my son, “Hey, the moon is going to cover the sun!” He looked at me so confused. He asked, “Why?” My answer was not a very scientific one, “the moon does that sometimes.” He said, “Ok. Cool.”

Obviously, I didn’t have a great answer. So, I looked up some facts to share with him:
