This is a very easy activity. We traced a circle onto the black construction paper.
In retrospect, with our young audience, it would be easier to create a circle template to place over the black paper.
Take a paper board box and trace a large circle (big enough to fill most of your black page) on the printed side of the box. Also be sure the paper board piece is large enough to cover the entire piece of black paper. Cut out the circle and tape the access point. Place some tape along the circle edge.
Flip the paper board over and secure to the black paper. As you can see the printed side is down to avoid any unnecessary visual distraction.
Great books to pair with this activity beginning from youngest to oldest audience and attention span:
|Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes|
|Happy Birthday, Moon by Frank Asch|
We paired these activities with a moon themed snack, Babybel Cheese with round crackers.
|To the moon!|
