  • lay a blanket out, and maybe place objects on it to represent the sun, stars, moon, the earth we live in, etc. and just say that the blanket doesn't end.

  • I would head to the library and look for some children's books on the subject. I remember reading lots of books about space to my kids.

  • I don't --really.
    I ask them what *they* think and in those 48 seconds they tell me --and get quickly distracted.
    LOL
    Too big a concept at that age I guess...
