Outer Space Songs

I use the “adventures in space” song by Greg & Steve to act out being astronauts. Turn out the lights and have a fun adventure! Kids love it!

I learned this as a little girl, I don’t know how to describe the tune but the words are:
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Blast off!
Off we go into outer space
Off we go at a zipping pace,
Rockets are ready,
all things are steady.
Off to visit the moon.

Space ship, Space ship, passing the stars in the sky, gleaming brightly see the comets go by.

Can be used as a transition or as a gross motor game outside.

zoom zoom zoom we’re going to the moon
zoom zoom zoom we’re going to the moon
if you’d like to take a trip
climb aboard my rocket ship
zoom zoom zoom we’re going to the moon
5 4 3 2 1 BLAST OFF!!!!

Our Sun Has 9 Planets
(tune: The More We Get Together)

Our sun has 9 planets
First Mercury, then Venus
Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus
Next Neptune and Pluto together go round Our sun has 9 planets that orbit around.

5 little aliens went out to play over the moon to the milky way.

4 little aliens came floating back.
4-3 3-2 2-1 Father alien went HEP HEP HEP the 5 little aliens came floating back

5 little astronauts floating in space, looking at the stars with a smile on their face. when along came a space ship to beam one out and the 4 little astronauts gave a little yell ” HEY ” 4-3 3-2 2-1
