Make Your Own Telescope and Stargaze with Free Printables
We love getting outdoors and looking at the stars. The only problem is, my kids usually fall asleep before it ever actually gets dark enough! I wish they would stay up and see them more often though because there is nothing like the clear night sky in the summer!
If you have the same problem as me, here’s a simple and creative way to help your children learn about the night sky constellations–during daylight hours! It even includes a free printable for them to stargaze with. My kids played with these printables for hours and pretended to be ship’s captains navigating by the stars.
And, as an added bonus, when you finally do stay up late enough on those clear beautiful summer sky nights your kids will know what to look for.
