Preschool Outer Space Cookie Cutter Painting Craft
Boost creativity with this out of this world preschool space activity! All you need is paint, construction paper, and outer space cookie cutters! This activity gets us talking about space vocabulary and builds color recognition. Use as many colors as you like! This is my favorite of the space activities for preschoolers.
outer space cookie cutters
yellow washable paint
black construction paper
Step 1: Gather your supplies: black construction paper, washable paint, and space cookie cutters. Use as many paint colors as you like. It works best if you use the dull side of the cookie cutter for paint dipping. I went a little crazy and got sparkly paper 🙂
Step 2: Have your little ones experiment with dipping the cookie cutters in the paint, then transferring them to the paper. If you have a big class, why not roll out a big strip of brown paper? Remember, this is a process art, so it will come out looking all crazy and weird. That’s part of the fun!
Step 3: Step back and look at your beautiful creation! Where do you see a star, a planet, or a rocket ship? What are some new words we learned along the way?
Preschool Outer Space Picture Book
I came across “Animals in the Sky” at the bookstore and LOVED it! It can be really tough to explain outer space to preschoolers. These are pretty big concepts. Even saying the word “constellation” can be a tongue twister, but this book makes everything really fun and easy to understand! Each page flips open, and then outwards again. The first open shows a cluster of stars, the second open shows what animal the stars form together! This book is wonderful for vocabulary and encouraging us to look up at the night sky!
Have fun with these space themes! We hope you enjoy the Outer Space Adventure Preschool Lesson Plan! Be sure to check out the My Hollydog Preschool Lesson Plan for another FREE activity pack!
