Houston, we have a problem – there are so many rad outer space craft projects and just not enough time to make them all! Today we’re sharing a whole bunch of our favorites, featuring everything from planets to constellations to UFOs! We love all of these projects as prompts for learning more about the solar system and outer space. Younger kids can make up their own planets, solar systems, and constellations but older kids can look up real ones as reference when crafting and learn a thing or two! Take a look at all eleven projects below. Happy crafting!
