The Solar System {Aliens}

 

Solar System


I couldn’t resist including some imaginary play and fun activities into our Solar System unit. 

These Alien ideas were all a hit with the kids!

Bristle Block Aliens


The girls made Aliens out of our Bristle Block set.

I love Olivia’s face here….she was making really funny noises to make her aliens “talk”.

Here’s Elaina’s Alien in a spaceship.

And an Alien family.  Olivia would say, “Daddy, Mommy, and Baby”.


Silly Story Maker

We have this really fun game called Silly Story Maker.  We played it several times using the alien theme.  Basically the kids make up a story using the story card prompts.

The kids made their own symmetrical Aliens.  We folded the construction page in half and drew out half of the alien, and then cut them out to make a symmetrical alien.

Then they added googely eyes and decorated them.

For a special touch, we adopted our aliens. 

I’m not sure how it’s going for Isaac’s alien….since he’s a killer….
