Most kids find trouble learning science and its thought-provoking concepts. While space science seems fascinating, it’s quite difficult and dry when it comes to learning.
However, these days, the means of technology and entertainment have made space science a fascinating topic for kids of all ages. It’s never too early to introduce the concepts of space science to your children and make them familiar with space, galaxies, and other stuff like big bang theory.
Listed below are some of the activities to help make space science learning fun for your kids.
Watch Some Sci-Fi Series Or Animated Programs Together
If you want to introduce something to the babies of the alpha generation, there’s no better way than fiction series and animated programs. This generation is always glued to the screens and in order to make them familiar with something, you need to use the screen. There are tons of sci-fi movies and series that you can watch with your kids. This would enhance your child’s interest in space sciences, boost their knowledge in the subject of astronomy, and would also give you an opportunity to spend some quality time together. It’s not necessary that you make them watch the latest sci-fi programs, you could dig out science fiction series of your time too!
Introduce Space Comics And Books
Books can never get old! To develop your child’s interest in space science and astronomy, you need to introduce some books on the relevant subject. The more appealing and colorful the book is, the more your child would be tempted to read it. Besides, comic books have their own charm. Books having aesthetic galaxy background, three-dimensional pictures of the solar system, awesome drawings of the sun, moon, and stars would definitely leave your child in a state of awe. Furthermore, their knowledge of the subject would increase. You can make a bedtime ritual to read those books together.
Craft Galaxy Background And Artificial Solar System In The Living Space
What about transforming your kid’s bedroom into an artificial Solar System or satellite, with the walls having a galaxy background, roofs featuring glowing stars, planets hanging from the ceiling in a circular shape? Sounds interesting! Well, all it will need is a little bit of creativity and some excellent research. Kids learn more from their living spaces.
Art Does Wonder
Engage your kids in different fun art activities such as:
Phases of Moon: Why and how the moon changes its shape throughout its cycle could be better explained and learned by visualizing and drawing the different phases of the Moon.
Solar System: You can draw and make models of the solar system with all its planets and orbits with the help of different materials like dough, balls, threads, paper, and colors, etc. Every time you make one, make sure that your kid labels every object so that he learns along.
Constellation Crafting: Crafting constellation and galaxy backgrounds is the ultimate fun and highly fascinating for kids. You just need to search for some easy ideas and provide your child with relevant art supplies and your child is going to have fun learning science stuff!
You see, getting your kid familiar with space science concepts isn’t all that difficult. All you need is the right approach, the right tools, and a lot of encouragement for the kids.
