Go to your local library and read a story about space. Perhaps try Aliens in Underpants Save the World by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. While you're there also research moon landings and visits to space.

Return home and draw a space scene. Get your child to think about the setting and the characters. Ask them what kind of characters they may find.

Create a spaceship, using things you can find around the house. Kitchen foil, plastic bottles and cardboard rolls are all excellent building blocks.

Alternatively build your child their own spaceship using a large cardboard box and lots of kitchen foil.
