Preschool Space Theme



Create an astronomy mural showing the relative sizes of the planets to include in your preschool space theme.



We created this colourful astronomy mural as part of our preschool space theme.

To complete it, requires a lot of colouring in and cutting out so it is a great family or class project.

Make the Space Mural

You will need
2 large sheets of black cardstock
tape
printable planet cut-outs*
wax or pencil crayons
scissors
glue stick


*The printable pages containing the astronomy cut-outs can be downloaded and printed from the following site free of charge.

http://www.learningpage.com

We coloured in the planets and stuck them down in order of distance from the sun:

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Saturn and Neptune. (Pluto is no longer classified as a planet!)


Variations
On the Learning Page website, there are also printables of comets, stars, space ships and UFO's which you could add. We are still going to add glitter and create an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. You could also add gold star stickers to your mural.
