We’ve been doing a lot of star-themed activities thanks to our Babbabox, and so my kids were very excited to learn more about the stars by watching Big Bird’s Adventure: One World, One Sky at the Boston Museum of Science. The show turned out to be less about the stars and more about how we are all beneath the same sky, whether we’re on Sesame Street or in China, but they did learn about the North Star and the Big Dipper, as well as that the sun is a star. And I’m guessing that is about as much as they would have gotten out of any show. The tone of the show was perfect for my kids, as well as four of their friends – two we had arranged to meet up with and two more who just happened to be there!
Are your kids learning about the moon and the stars? Here are few other activities they might enjoy:
- Making Constellations from Inspiration Laboratories
- Blast Off! Space Game from NurtureStore
- Solar System Craft from Red Ted Art

Do you have any space-themed activities to share?
We received free tickets to the planetarium show, as well as to the Boston Museum of Science. All opinions are my own.
