The moon is a wondrous site to behold, isn’t it? It doesn’t matter what phase it’s in, it always brightens my day (see what I did there?) to catch a glimpse of it up in the sky. I don’t care if it’s full or a crescent or only the Chesire Cat’s smile (as my daughter refers to it), it’s always a gentle reminder that we’re kind of small, and the universe is rather big.
Even better than the regular old moon: the lunar eclipse that’s coming later this month. Let’s celebrate all things lunar for craft time this week. Whether you focus on the phases of the moon or its full-on glory, I bet one of these crafts will catch your eye.
