June Space Box!
Some space facts.
The activities come in individual bags with all their items.
The first activity we did was the planetarium.
You place a constellation sticker on the paper, secure it on the tube with the band, poke holes on the dots, and use the pen/flashlight to write the constellation name, & shine the light through the tube. Shine it on the wall or roof & you have your constellations! This was so neat!
The second activity is the Space Sand Kit. This had several different activities to do with the sand. It doesn’t get wet. It mimics the sand on Mars. I’ll show one.
This is when we froze the sand. It separated from the water and all the sand on top just came right off. It was fun to play around with.
And the third activity is the Rocket Balloons Kit. It’s about using the air to mimic rocket momentum. This included 2 activities.
One activity is using the pump to blow up the large balloon & let it go. This was probably her favorite activity. And the second is a Balloon Race. You tape straws to the 2 balloons, secured with clothes pins, thread the string through the straw, tie it between 2 chairs & release the pin. They race by releasing the air.
Also included is a Moon Chart. We get to chart our Moon as it goes through it’s cycles. This is half of it. It’s really long.
And her badge of honor! She is now an expert on Astronomy!
This was a great box. With her age we did all the activities together. Older kids could do them by themselves. But, it was so great to teach her as we played. She learned so many things about space & this gave us the tools to be able to explain it to her! This is a great summer box. If you’d like to check them out you can do that HERE!
