Go Stargazing With Your Child

Research constellations on the Internet or at your local library to determine which ones should be visible in your area at this time of year. Then, take your child outside after dark and see what you can find together. If possible, go stargazing in a remote location so neighborhood lights don't reduce your visibility. Talk about his favorite constellation, too, and consider picking up some glow-in-the-dark stars to place on his ceiling. With his help, place them in a way that duplicates constellations you saw on your stargazing adventure!
