The book Let's Go, Zudie-o by Helen

Macgregor has a dvd of the first moon landing and a lovely dance activity which I have used successfully with 3 and 4 year olds.

Lots of opportunities for counting backwards to blast off!

I also had planet shapes and numbered spacecraft as a felt board activity.

As my husband works with satellites I banned the rhyme '5 little men in a flying saucer'-but that was just personal prejudice!
