Little kids are fascinated by the big, glowing moon in the night sky. Here are some activities to encourage their interest and imaginations. This is an excerpt from an article written by Diane Flynn Keith.
Remember, only do these learning activities if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn, while building “readiness skills” for school or homeschool success.

Round rice crackers spread with cream cheese resemble the moon. Use raisins or other bits of dried fruit and nuts to make a man-in-the-moon face.
Pancakes can be made in many shapes to represent the phases of the moon — from crescent moons to full moons!
Make your favorite batch of round sugar cookies. When they come out of the oven allow them to cool for about 2 minutes. Then roll them in powdered sugar and put them on racks to cool completely. Once cooled, roll them in powdered sugar again. Enjoy these melt-in-your-mouth Sugar Moons.
