Celebrate the anniversary of the lunar landing with these 20 moon crafts for kids! So fun and easy to do – and definitely out of this world.
July 20th, 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing! At 4:18 EDT, Eagle (the lunar module) touched down on the surface of the moon after separating from the Columbia Space Shuttle. Neil Armstrong reported “the Eagle has landed.”
The story of the first lunar landing fascinates me. As an adult, I understand how it works – but it still doesn’t make sense in my head. How are we able to blast from the Earth and go into space . . . to the moon?
Understanding space seems even more magical when you’re a child. To think of a big universe out there is thrilling and overwhelming! It’s fun to read about, fun to study – and fun to craft.

To celebrate the first journey to the moon, I’ve put together a collection of moon activities for kids that I think you’re going to love. And I think your littles will love them too, of course. These are great ideas that you can both do together!
