Moon Phase Craft

Updated: Sep 1, 2021

Moon Phase Craft

Learning science is always fun around here. Astronomy is our oldest son’s absolute favorite subject to learn. One of the many, many reasons I love to homeschool is to see our children explore what interests them.

Since he’s such a fan of learning about the moon, I came up with a number of projects and handicrafts for us to do together. This moon phase art weave is one of them.

It was so much fun to create and I hope it gives you inspiration to get creative as well.

Materials we used:

13” x 20” wood board

56 small nails


Tools we used:

Template or glass cup





  1. Start off by tracing your moon phases in oreder onto your board with a pencil.

  2. Hammer nails around each moon phase.

  3. Tie yarn to one of the nail in each phase.

  4. Weave around and through each nail.

  5. Cut and tie each piece of yarn for each moon.

I can’t wait to hang this up in our homeschool room. I hope you enjoy this project as much as we did!

Happy homeschooling and remember to "Willfully Serve His Children" throughout your homeschool day.
