It’s time! This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, and we’ve got some drawing tutorials and a stellar booklist (see what I did there?) for you and your kids to enjoy together.

First: let’s draw!

Ralph Masiello has been leading our Read-Aloud Revival Premium members in drawing workshops, and he recently joined us to draw space-themed scenes.

We’ve pulled a couple of those recordings for you and included them below.

(Pssst…RAR Premium Members, remember you can access all 10 of the videos from the space drawing workshop now)

Grab some paper, a pencil, and an eraser. This is going to be fun!

Simple Spaceship

This tutorial is ideal for kids age 4-9. Ralph leads our younger kids through drawing a simple spaceship:

The Saturn V Rocket

This tutorial is ideal for kids age 10+ (or anyone who likes a challenge!). Ralph leads our older kids through drawing the Saturn V Rocket that launched the Apollo missions.

Closed captions are available on both videos—just click CC to open them.

By the way… if your kids enjoy these, they’ll also love our (many) other drawing workshops with Ralph inside Premium. We’re opening up Premium to new members in August. Just pop your email in below if you’d like a reminder about that:

Just for fun…

You could add some Marshmallow Moon Oreos, or maybe get some Tang and drink what the astronauts drank. 🙃
