Board games are one of our favorite ways to spend time together. We have a stash of them but it is also fun to add in new ones to the mix. The easiest way I have found to do that is with printables! We are able to choose the theme and have fun with it until we are done. Just like with this Moon Mission: A Space Board Game.
A Space Board Game
Board games are not only fun but they have developmental benefits for kids as well. Board games can help children learn to work as a team or how to constructively have competition. Board games can help children learn decision making skills, problem solving and communication skills. This game, and others, can help children set and achieve goals as well.

Print the game board. We suggest to laminate the board games to preserve the life of the game. If you prefer not to laminate, dry erase pockets are also a great choice.
How To Play Moon Mission
Start at Blast Off. Take turns to roll a die. Move your play piece that many spaces. Watch out for asteroids and meteors because when you land on them you have to move ONE space back!
Land on a star and move ONE forward! Land on the alien and name a planet you know! First player at the moon wins!
Another fun counting game is this Race To 100
