Sky Stories Constellation Exploration activity for kids from the Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota

Let’s tell sky stories and learn about constellations today!

Think of an object you want to turn into a constellation and tell a story about. Use paper or light cardboard, draw an outline, and punch holes where your stars are. Hold your constellation up to the light to see your starts shine.

For this activity, you’ll need construction paper or light cardboard, pencils, paper punch, needle or awl, and a light source.

Further Your Learning

  • Look up some of the stories behind real life constellations and read about them.
  • Go outside at night and discover constellations you’ve read about.
  • Tell a story about your own constellation.
