Have your kids ever wondered about the moon and how it looks different every now and then? Our free printable moon phases poster will help you and your little one identify the different phases of our moon.
When it comes to discipling my kids, I love pointing to creation. We try to spend as much time as we can outside and when we do we bring up everything we see and tie it back to God.
Last night, my son asked me to go on the balcony with him to see the moon. It reminded me of that verse in Psalm 8 that says:
When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
We discussed this a bit as we stared at the moon. It was a great opportunity to remember God’s great love for us. Even though compared to the vastness of creation we are so small, he cares about us and is mindful of us. These are truths I want my kids to keep in their hearts forever.
Here are some more scripture about the moon and space:
Yours is the day, Yours also is the night;
You have prepared the light and the sun. Psalm 74:16 NASB
Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all stars of light! Psalm 148:3 NASB
God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:16-18 NASB
To Him who made the great lights,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting:
The sun to rule by day,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting,
The moon and stars to rule by night,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Psalm 136:7-9 NASB
Not only was it a great discipling moment, but was also the perfect opportunity to whip out our poster!
It’s so fun to learn about space and My son LOVES everything about space and creation. He was so excited to identify what phase the moon was in.
