Phases of the Moon


In addition to the Space Ship Craft – I thought it would be fun to teach my Little Chefs the different Phases of the Moon.  Each night, especially in the summer time, they love to find the Moon – to see what “shape” it is.

Phases of the Moon

I have said before, that my Little Chefs and I LOVE Oreos! And while eating them one day, Little Chef E realized that the creme looked like a Moon. So I thought – what a fun way to teach them the different Phases of the Moon…..with Oreos!

We created a printable Phases of the Moon for you to use. And all we did is separate our Oreos – tried to get all the creme onto one side, and being careful not to break them. Then with a spoon –  shape the creme to the different Phases of the Moon. The Little Chefs had a great time making their Moon Phases….. and of course then Eating them! I then realized that there were 8 moon phases, which meant I just let my Little Chefs eat 8 Oreo Cookies!!!

Just another simple and fun activity to teach them a little bit about the Moon to go along with our Celebrating National Space Day! Hope you enjoy your Oreos and learning about the Moon!!

If you are looking for a recipe to use some of those broken Oreos, try our Oreo White Chocolate Cookies or Mom’s Banana Dessert!!

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
