Our Space Scouts monthly subscription club kit arrived the other day, you know, the delightful learning adventure aimed at discovering the wonders of the universe where children can learn about space exploration, science, and astronomy, it arrived!! Our 7 & 8 year olds couldn’t wait to get their hands on it! All that could be heard as they opened the packages was, oohhs & ahhs, as they looked through the contents which included:
- Space Scouts Lunchbox
- Space Scouts Solar System Poster
- Space Scouts Activity Sheet
- Space Scouts Sticker Scramble
- Space Scouts Souvenir Toy
- Space Scouts Constellation Card Startup Kit (cover & ring)
- Introduction to Space Scouts Constellation Cards
And then once everything was out their journey began!
Ricky & Jett, their guides on their expedition through the solar system addressed the children as Space Scouts, which they took much pride in as they launched off! They began their expedition with first learning about Ursa Major/Big Dipper which included a brief history, the ancient Greeks story to explain the Big Bear in the sky, awesome brain games for the children to solve, and constellation card that had holes that form the Big Dipper when a flash light is shined from behind it in a dark room.
The children about lost their minds when they saw the constellation on their ceiling, talk about cool!! They had a blast playing with the souvenir toys, completing the word scrambles, putting the magnets on the lunch box, and completing the sticker scramble!
Parent’s point of view….
What I like about Space Scouts is the fact that each month the children learn something new about the solar system and receive information on a new constellation and card to add to their collection. I also appreciate the fact that the Space Scouts makes learning fun and engaging, the children were eager to see the night sky and be the first to point out the Big Dipper. And I am extremely thankful that Space Scouts comes with an adorable retro lunch boxes where the children can keep all their Space Scout goodies…and said lunch box doesn’t take up much space! The constellations ring is also a genius idea, our son can’t wait to collect them all…he wants to be quizzed on them, haha!
Space Scouts is the perfect gift for kiddos 6 and up! I am looking forward to next month’s arrival, it is a great way to help pass the time over winter break, snow days, spring break, road trips, etc. and I love the fact that it gives them a much needed break from screens!!!
