The nursery class at Kinneret Day School spent their Friday morning “blasting off to outer space” in a space-themed glow party. The event was a culmination of a two-week exploration of outer space, in which the class of 3-year-olds learned all about planets, stars, astronauts and rocket ships. The children dressed in white shirts and glow stick bracelets as they entered a room of twinkling stars, hands-on activities and fun glow-in-the-dark art projects, all illuminated by blacklights and star lights. The children also participated in a moonwalk activity where they pretended they were floating on the moon and used different toys from the classroom to make glowing satellites and rovers. There was a discovery box where the children explored moon rocks that they painted with glow-in-the-dark paint with magnifying glasses and different tools. During their time in the glowing space station, they also sat down to have a Shabbat party on the moon, where even their cups and straws were glowing. It was a fun time had by all—both students and teachers!
