Craft is always a good idea to keep the kids productive while they are at home.
Start to crumple an aluminum foil until it forms a round shape.
Dip it in a gray paint and gently press it onto a paper plate.
Dip the tin foil again, but this time, in a white paint and stamp it onto the same paper plate.
Continue doing it until there are no spaces uncolored.
While waiting for the paper plate to dry, let’s make the moon’s background.

Finish it off by gluing the moon paper plate craft on the black paper.
