Sent directly through the post to little explorers, the Space ExplorerBox takes children aged 3-8 on a marvellous space adventure.
The Space ExplorerBox includes:
- Spot the Constellations in the Night Sky – Use your stargazing guide to spot some of the most famous constellations of the night sky and learn all about stars. Recreate your favourites on the pavement with stickers and chalk, or even invent your own constellation.
- Build a Planets Mobile – Build and paint your very own mobile of our solar system and learn about what makes each planet unique and awesome.
- Create an Astronaut Costume – Create an astronaut pack to wear on your imaginary journey through space and learn all about astronauts and the work that they do.
- Launch a Rocket into the Sky – Build a rocket launcher to launch paper rockets into the sky and learn about the different machines that are sent into space. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF! How high will yours fly?
Each activity is in an individual package which contains all of the materials and instructions required, fun facts cards and great ideas for other ways to explore the theme.
If they would like to, little explorers can build up a collection of the facts cards in a separately purchased 'ExplorerBook' and keep talking about their adventures over and over.
All of the activities are inspired by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) and encourage children to be outside, active, investigative and imaginative.
ExplorerBoxes provide hours of adventure, learning and together time. They make unique children's gifts or rainy day, weekend and holiday activities. Do check out our other exciting themes such as science and woodland too!
Please note, the Space ExplorerBox requires you to have safety scissors, a pencil, a glue stick and sticky tape at home. You can purchase a separate 'ExplorerBox Starter Kit' containing these items if you need to.
And by choosing an ExplorerBox you also help us help others. For every ExplorerBox sold we donate 50 pence to amazing charities working with families and children. You can visit our 'Giving' page to find out more...
