Man on the Moon (Pie) Space Snacks
Our house has continued to fill with all sorts of space-related toys, books and other NASA stamped stuff since our life-changing trip to Kennedy Space Center. Landon, aka NASA Boy, cannot seem to get enough of space or anything related to it. We are making several trips each month to the library to return books about space and check out new books about… space. I have several day trips planned this summer that I am hoping further fan the flames of this space obsession. I can’t get enough of Landon wanting to learn everything he can about space, astronauts, NASA, etc.
It was actually Landon who suggested this space snack idea!! We had already picked up some Mini Moon Pies at the dollar store and used them for space-themed teacher gifts during Teacher Appreciation Week. I was talking to Bob and mentioned that I wanted to think of a fun space-themed snack to put on the blog. Landon yelled out that we should make astronauts to put on Moon Pies (“get it, Mom? ASTRONAUTS ON THE MOON (PIES)!!!”). I loved the idea and immediately started to plan for this post.
July 20, 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing when Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.

How to Make Man on the Moon Space Snacks
1. First you will want to print out some astronauts. Quick note about our printable file – it has two pages. One page has small astronauts (pictured above) that work great with mini Moon Pies. The second page has larger astronauts that you can use on the original (larger) sized moon pies. Just print the page that has the size you want. We recommend printing these pages on white cardstock to make your astronauts nice and sturdy.
2. Cut out the astronauts and tape a toothpick to the back of each one.
3. Stick each astronaut in its own moon pie. Now you have a “man on the moon!” So cute!
I really love the way these turned out and we will absolutely be making more for July 20th.
More fun you might enjoy…
