This is a fabulous book for kids whose Soldier is deployed.
This month, our kids listened to the story, Night Catch, at our FRG Family Night.  From the website description:

When a Soldier's work takes him half-way around the world, he enlists the help of the North Star for a nightly game of catch with his son.  Night Catch is a timeless story that connects families while they are apart and offers comforting hope for their reunion.

The kids each got a bag of "Galaxy Play Dough" which was homemade play dough colored dark blue with glitter in a Ziploc baggie.  They also enjoyed using black construction paper, silver star stickers, hole punchers, and chalk to make their own constellations.

More fun ideas for this theme can be found at this Pinterest board:  Night Catch FRG Meeting.
