For thousands of years, mankind gazed into the heavens, dreaming of going to the moon. On a hot summer day in July of 1969, Neil Armstrong made that dream a reality. Since that night, space exploration has exploded, and people around the world have become more fascinated than ever with orbiting the solar system. Children everywhere dream of becoming astronauts when they grow up. But that fervor has often gone by the wayside, by the time they enter their teens.
So rather than dissuade children from becoming astronauts, NASA has developed a host of space-themed activities. Many schools throughout the country offer courses in astronomy and space science. Field trips to local planetariums are strongly encouraged. Educators and parents are supported in planning activities and projects that teach about the galaxies.
If you are looking for ideas on how to nurture the astronaut within your child, tap into his imagination using print. Since most kids love to create, have your child design his own customizedBusiness Cards. He can upload a photo of him or herself, on an extra-large 5 x7 postcard, surrounded by images of constellations. Many online printers offer pre-made templates with photos of clouds, stars and planets. Take a picture of your child dressed as an astronaut, and create customized greeting cards or flyers that he can send to his friends and relatives.
