Oreo Cookie Moons

For the Official Moon Phases you can find them at - Astronomy

The Little Man did a small unit out of his Astronomy book on the Moon.
Just one of the things that he learned about was the phases of the moon. To give him just a little hands-on memory manipulative he did the Oreo cookie moon phase activity.

New Moon, Waxing Crescent, Fist Quarter, Waxing Gibbous and the Full Moon.
Then, the Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter, and Waning Crescent. Back up to the New Moon.

I timed it so we would be done with the activity at our 3 o'clock snack time!
Everyone dunk Oreos in milk until 1/2 the package was gone. 


  1. That's a yummy project. Well done!!

  2. Isn't that a cute idea!! But were they bouncing off the walls from all the sugar? :)

  3. That's a great project! Delicious!

  4. Super cute idea. I will remember this for next year. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Such a great idea. You always have such fun activities. Enjoy your day and God bless.
