Activity Name: The Solar system
Benefits: Get basic knowledge about solar system , planets , space station and things related to it
Required age: Above 3.5 years (Or as per child’s interest).
Material needed: Anything as per our convenience. We have used books, stickers and some drawing.
My daughter started to ask more questions about the sun, star, and moon as these are very common and more visible to everyone. To support her interest, I have started to read about the solar system.
Understanding the solar system at an early stage helps them to imagine many things. They can think beyond their own experience.
First, we have started with,
Since my daughter love reading books, we have started to know about the concept first from books.
What is a planet?
Planets are astronomical bodies that move around a star. We have eight planets in our solar system. Sun is a star as well, and all these planets are revolving around it.
The eight Planets are

Not only Books , but also have Pasted this wall sticker in our living room. This one helps her to watch the picture every day, and we talk about it whenever we cross the wall. I highly recommend getting this solar system sticker, which helps the child to have a look and keep it in mind as it is in their eyesight always. And the best part is these stickers, even we love to watch it every day.
After that , we did simple solar system drawing activity as well.
Our next book is about “SPACE.”
She understood a few pointers from this book.
- A person who travels to space is called “Astronauts.”
- They use space suits while going outside since space has no air. This suit carries air to breathe.
