20 awesome planet and solar system crafts that are perfect for kids who are obsessed with outer space.

We've gone through many phases in our house.

There was a maze phase. A traffic light phase. A Roman numerals phase.

Then there are the interests that come and go...

For my oldest son, space is one of those come and go interests. One day he's absolutely fascinated by all things space related and the next, it's like meh, not interested.

However, many hyperlexic and autistic children have a special interest in outer space. They'll binge read all the books about space they can. They'll insist on dressing like their favorite astronaut for a week straight. And they'll certainly test your knowledge of space as they impress you with fact after fact about Jupiter's moons.

Well, these outer space and planet crafts for kids are perfect for them (even if you still can't name at least one of Jupiter's moons).
