11 Cool Outer Space Crafts for Kids

Today I have some awesome craft ideas for you.  Not just any craft ideas…… today I have cool outer space crafts for you.  I was making my way through the internet looking for some really creative outer space crafts and I think I found them.  I found some that are made from food and others that are made from recycled materials.  I found crafts that are perfect for the youngest of crafters and others that are meant for older children.  But, bottom line…. there is an outer space craft here for you.  So, enough with the chit-chat….. let’s get started.

I love this craft…. I just love how these little aliens turn out.  I found this Outer Space craft over at Craft Jr. She shows you step-by-step how to make the aliens as pictured above.  But, she also explains how if you have mismatched colors or pipe cleaners of different sizes it doesn’t matter…. they are aliens after all.

This is an awesome Outer Space craft because your child is going to have to care for it everyday.  It is actually made with real grass seed so your child will have to care for it everyday for the grass to grow.  Check out FreeKidsCrafts for all the details.

These are pretty creepy looking…. aren’t they?  I found this craft over at MakeAndTakes and she had it posted as a Halloween craft, but I thought this craft would also fit for an Alien…. so I am including it in this Outer Space crafts list.  Check out her site for all the “how-to” details.


(8)  Rocket Craft

Rocket Craft

Isn’t this Rocket craft just adorable?  I love it!!  And, it is made out of a cardboard box.  What a creative idea.  You will need help from an adult for this craft as they do use a craft knife.  But, it would be so much fun making this with your parents.  Check out Se7en for the step-by-step details.


(9) Space Cake

Space Cake

I just had to add this cake to this post.  I know it really isn’t a craft Per Se, but I think cooking can be quite crafty…. and it is also a ton of fun to do with an adult.  So, check out this Outer Space cake over at FamilyFun and get the recipe to cook with your parents.  This would be great for an Outer Space birthday party.


(10) Puffy Paint Moon Craft

Puffy Paint Moon Craft

AllKidsNetwork shows us how if you mix shaving cream and glue together it makes a lumpy and bumpy surface….. just like the moon.  Actually, what they explain is that while the glue dries it makes a smooth-textured material that puffs while it’s drying and then flattens out.  Isn’t that cool?  Go to AllKidsNetwork to check out the full details.


(11) Space Shuttle Craft

Space Shuttle Craft

Wow, isn’t this space shuttle amazing?!  It’s just so creative.  And, the best part…. It’s made out of mostly all recycled materials.  How cool is that?!  Kids of all ages will love making this space shuttle…. the younger kids will need help from an adult.  Check out LooLeDo for the entire craft tutorial.
