Fun Planets Flip Book Printable

Do you remember learning about planets as a child? When Pluto was still considered a planet? Now we have 8 planets to teach our kids about, but it is still such a fun subject.

I created this Planets Flip Book Printable so that the facts could go with a picture of each planet to help the dots connect. Kids can enjoy making this book along side you or you can make it and give it to them as a learning tool. Either way, it is exciting!

My children love any kind of fun space activities for kids.

This activity is a super exciting way to help teach children about each planet and a few facts about them.

Planets of the Solar System

Keeping all the planets in our solar system straight can be hard.

That’s why I like to teach my kids this fun mnemonic order of the planets – My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles.

M – Mercury

V – Venus

E – Earth

M – Mars

J – Jupiter

S – Saturn

U – Uranus

N – Neptune

It’s a fun way to help kids remember the order of planets as they are moving away from the sun.

What’s included in the Planets Flip Book Printable?

Each page features stunning, ready-to-color images of the planets that invite kids to unleash their creativity while orbiting through our solar system. Plus, they’ll discover a universe of knowledge with fun facts about each celestial body, turning amateur astronomers into savvy space experts in no time.

You can start by printing out each of the sheets. I have my kids color the planetsĀ in the correct color. You can either show them from a book or pictures from online. It is helpful for my kids to see real pictures to do the activity and understand completely.

For older children, you can have them cut the fact squares out and glue them in place, in the right spot.

For younger children, I prefer to cut out the squares on my own and help show them where they belong and they can glue them. This is totally up to you.

We like to go over all of the facts and review them.

Get ready for liftoff into learning and fun!

Extend The Activity

You can use this flip book as a guide for children to give an ‘oral report’ of sorts. They can study the facts and either repeat them back or as a starting point for a conversation.

We have also used this as a guide to draw a larger version of space. This can be on a piece of printer paper or even on a poster board. It doesn’t have to be perfect but the repetition helps children learn and remember.
