The last full moon of the spring is sometimes called the strawberry moon, signaling the time when wild strawberries are ready to be picked.
Celebrate this year’s strawberry moon the evening of Friday, June 5th by making moon rocks!
Throughout the year, the moon is visible at different times due to the earth’s rotation and the moon’s revolution around the earth. A full moon rises in the evening and sets in the early morning. A waning moon rises before the sun and can be seen in the morning, while waxing moon often rises in the morning after the sun and is best visible in the afternoon.
All you need is a smooth rock, acrylic paint, and a paintbrush!
