Here’s another space themed printable – 8 awesome planet flashcards with all the planets of our Solar System (sorry Pluto – you just don’t cut it anymore!).
I’m a big fan of learning about space – there’s just so much we don’t yet know, and I know a lot of children love the mystery of it all too – there’s just soooo much we still have to discover!
If you want to put the planets in order starting with the closest to the sun, the order is: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
And if you want to do a little research first, so that you can teach them more about our part of the universe, NASA have an awesome site, with a great map of the Solar System, 3D planets they can move around, and some super facts!
And if you’re little ones just love space, you may also want to check out these activities:

- Build a rocket craft
- Solar system number ordering puzzle
- Planet coloring booklet
