Gazing at the night sky is such a fun and relaxing thing to do and makes for a nice quiet talking time with your child.
On a warm summer night, try putting a blanket outside, lying down together, and star-gazing! How many stars can you count before you run out of numbers? Do some look brighter than others, or smaller, or larger than others? Talk about why that might be. Can you try to imagine how far away the stars are?
Make a wish on a star and share your wishes!
