My Favorite Martian

The concept of life on other planets is a fun one for kids. Talk with your child about what we need to live on planet Earth, and what she thinks aliens need to live on another planet. Have her read about alien life or create a Martian in this fun art activity. Have more free time? Have your child collect some recycled materials and art materials, and create a space station for her Martian.
