Do your kids love stars and all things space? They can create their own constellations with this simple fine motor activity.
You can even sneak in some science and history with a little constellation info: The stars we see at night (mostly) stay in the same position compared to each other. People used these groupings of stars (or constellations) to tell stories. The constellations illustrated these stories. And served as guidepost

For this activity, you’ll need:
Star stickers in several colors
Markers or crayons in the same colors as star stickers
Put several stickers of the same color onto a piece of paper.
How to Play:
Ask your child to choose the matching color marker and create constellations by connecting the stars. Ask for their explanation about their constellation – they are sure to want to share!
Add a little more challenge by putting two or three different colors of star stickers on the paper. Then your child can create several constellations. Ask them to connect the same color stars using the matching color marker.
