Playdough Moon Phases

A great hands on way to introduce the moon phases to little ones with an activity that can be played and enjoyed throughout the month!

Print and laminate the Moon Phases Template courtesy of Babble and Chat.
Use a bottle lid to cut out the circles from rolled out playdough. Overlap the lid on the circle to cutout a crescent shape. The remaining part of the circle can be used for the waxing/waning gibbous phase. 
Arrange the moon phases accordingly on the template. 

Watch the night sky and mark the changes in the moon by attaching an arrow in the centre of the template and moving it to point to the correct phase throughout the month.
