Space activities for kids are one thing that my children are currently obsessed with! They can’t get enough of all things space. That’s why recently, I went on a hunt for space crafts for kids, and today, I’m sharing my favorites with you!
These space crafts can be done by children as young as three and as old as 16 plus! Some projects are more little-kid friendly, while others are best for older kids.
However, all of these space themed crafts are super fun and easy to make! No fancy materials or expensive supplies needed to make these space crafts!
There are so many fun space crafts for kids, it can get overwhelming. But never fear, I found some of my most favorite space crafts that my kids ask to make over and over!
Super Fun Space Crafts that Kids Love!
My kids have tried all the crafts on this list and they love doing them! From the preschooler to the high schooler, we have tons of fun doing space crafts.
Of course, because it’s STEAMsational, I often like to add in a bit of space science while we are doing our craft projects just to make things a bit more educational.

Where Can I Buy Supplies for Space Crafts?
We all know that you can buy just about anything on Amazon, but for ethical reasons, many people are deciding to no longer purchase supplies from Amazon. I like to shop for craft supplies at teacher stores and small businesses, when possible.
Here are my favorite places to buy craft supplies for space craft activities:
Oriental Trading Company is still one of my favorite places to pick up craft supplies. I love that they often have supplies in bulk, which makes it much more classroom friendly.
Discount School Supplies also has a lot of craft supplies in bulk for affordable prices and they are always offering discounts and sales!
For unique themed crafts, I love Kid Made Modern. The craft supplies are designed to inspire creativity in kids and the themes are so much fun!
Of course, if you want to be sure you always have craft supplies coming in, why not sign up for a craft subscription box? These are my kids’ favorite craft boxes to receive every month:
Elementary Artist Box- I love this box because it focuses on introducing different art concepts to kids, and it goes beyond simple cut and paste crafts.
Kids Craft of the Month– This box is fun because each box has a unique craft theme and my kids love trying to guess what the next theme will be!
Craft+Boogie Box– This craft box has a fun theme each month and is designed for kids and adults to do together, which is a fun bonding activity to try at home. At our house, my teen and elementary kiddo do the activities together.
