Make constellations in a tube. I actually do this a lot when we have a spare tube for my kids and for my former daycare I would take dark construction paper scraps and just put it around roughly flat and use a pin to push in the outline of whatever the kids wanted...Great reward. They love it. Or you can, as I did for the older kids, let them select the constellation and I would punch it in. Great cheap activity to WOW any child.

Constellation Viewer-no flashlight needed! Another pinner says: "I didn't attach the paper circles to the ends of the tubes. I made 16 different constellation cards instead so that I could use the same tube to view all.
