This is day 8 of 10 in a series to write and spell “my name”, see all 10 days here.
This name writing idea works at any time of the year of course and pairs well with a space theme.
Supplies Needed for a Name in Space:
- sheet of color card stock – This can be the childs favorite color or simple black for space
- other colors of card stock cut into squares or rectangles plus one in a triangle to form the top of the rocket.
- Foam letters
- yellow crepe paper or similar
- star stickers
Have the kids search out their names in the foam letters or pick it out for them. Once they have their name ask them to count how many letters there are and select the correct amount of squares for their rocket.
It is a good idea to place the squares on the paper before using glue to make sure everything fits on the page.
Glue each block into place and add the top of the rocket. Make sure to add the crepe for the rockets tail before gluing down the last square.
The next step is to glue on the foam letters to spell a name.
The last step is to add star stickers to complete the space rocket feel. It is also great fine motor work!
Starting off a school year is always tons of fun. For our very first craft of a new school year I have each of the kids make a space rocket from with their name on it. 😀
