Sun, Earth, Moon Model Craft

Pin It


I thought this was such a neat idea. It simply and clearly shows you how the Earth goes around the Sun and the Moon goes around the Earth. You can easily make it with the template below. Great for a unit about space or the Moon.


  • 1 paper plate
  • white construction paper or card stock
  • Earth and Moon cutouts from template
  • hole puncher
  • crayons
  • 2 brass fasteners
  • scissors


  1. Go to the link below and download the template. Cut the Earth and Moon pieces from hard white paper.
  2. Color the paper plate yellow, color the Earth and Moon.
  3. Punch a hole at the end of each strip as shown and in the middle of the paper plate.
  4. Fasten the pieces together using brass fasteners.
The template is available online from NASA Blogs
It may not give you a big picture of the template, though. Alternatively, do an image search for 'sun earth moon model' and that should give you the image. Have fun.


  1. you dont have to use a plate you can use a cardboared box or a cereal box

  2. Great idea! I'm going to use this with my kids in our homeschool :)

  3. Love this! It's a fun and easy way for kids to get an understanding of how the Sun, Earth, and Moon are related in space.
