Simple Moon Phases for Kids

Bismillah.

I wanted to teach Aaminah about the Moon Phases last Ramadan, but I could not find anything simple and age appropriate.  She was 3 and a half last Ramadan. So I made the Moon Phases myself.  and I updated the file this year  and we did the moon phases again. Aaminah really enjoyed the activity. She now knows the names of a few phases of the moon MashaAllah. She explained the moon phases to her father after we did the chart. At night we also used a torch and balls to understand why the moon has phases.

These are the pics from last year.

You have the option to print out a colorful Earth or a black and white one  to color in. You can also skip printing the sun and make one large sized one  yourself.
