My kids and I love the moon and love to study the different moon phases. I have a little moon phases activity you can use to teach them to your kids.
When I was a kid, I would look out the window at night while driving and watch the moon. I remember always saying that it felt like the moon was following me. So, we started calling it “My Friend the Moon”. I think that has always made the moon a special thing to me. I dreamed of one day walking on the moon. Ok, I still do! Did you know this year is the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon? Cool, right?
Moon Books for Kids
Today’s post is part of the Nature Book Club series. Each month on the 20th, I will share a nature-themed activity with a book to accompany it. I love these posts because I truly love all things nature and this series keeps me posting about and doing activities related to things that I love. This month’s nature book club theme is sky and space. I have two books to share that are greatly loved around here:
If You Decide to Go to the Moon by Faith McNulty
Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes.
Both of these are fun and great to read to kids of all ages! And they go perfectly with the moon phases activity I am sharing today.

Moon Phases Activity for Kids
Now, on to the Moon Phases Activity!
This is a super simple thing to create and it shows just how a moon looks at the different phases. I made it into a printable to make it simple for you to use. You can get the template in my FREE subscriber library by signing up here.
To make this moon phase slider, print out the template. Cut out the circle from the first page. Glue the first and second page together along the top and bottom edge. Trim off the side edges to make it smaller.
Use the template page to make the slider out of black paper. Once the glue is dry, insert the slider in-between the two pages and use it to make the different moon phases.
Isn’t it fun?! We love it!
You can grab the Moon Phases Slider template in my subscriber library with TONS of other fun FREE printables.
