Hunter is 16 1/2 months old.
Our focus for Tot School was space and the color orange.
Hunter made an orange tissue paper flower to add to our collection of sun catchers.

We made some simple rocket ships that practiced shapes.
Our rocket ships. (Full post here.)
We made some fun aliens.
They turned out cute. (See the full post here.)
My favorite project of all of our space activities was this one. I love how it turned out!! See the full post here and see how great these turned out.
And of course, we made a Mother’s Day craft
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
I think this is my favorite of all of our space themed crafts that we did. I love how these turned out!!
You’ll need: black construction paper, coffee filter, markers, scissors, white paint, glitter glue, regular glue, star stickers, 2 spray bottles
We did the first step outside so it wouldn’t make a big mess inside. Put a small amount of white paint in one of the spray bottles and mix it with water. Then spray it on your black construction paper. This gives that galaxy look.
While that is drying, color the coffee filters with washable markers.
Then spray the coffee filters with water so that the marker spreads. When the coffee filters are dry (and it doesn’t take very long), cut out some circles to make planets. We also used the Earth we made for Earth Day as one of our planets.
Glue the planets onto the construction paper.
Add some stars. (Hunter used stickers, Hailey glued on sequence stars.)
Use the glitter glue to turn your stars into shooting stars.
Our completed projects. I love these!!

Here is a cute and easy alien we made to go along with our space theme.
You’ll need construction paper, glue, googly eyes, pipe cleaner and do-a-dot markers.
Decorate your alien with the do-a-dot markers.
Add some pipe cleaner for arms and legs… add as many as you want- it’s an alien after all
