Review: Space Scouts

I've always been into anything relating to the stars, planets, the Universe, etc. So when my son showed an interest, I was really excited to share my love for space with him. He has a pretty expensive telescope (birthday gift from a family friend), has books on the cosmos, and we even watch shows related to it like the miniseries Cosmos and the TV show Into the Wormhole. Pretty much any TV show related to space, we're into it. 

So when I had the chance to get two months of Space Scouts for free, I was excited! All the things he could learn, and I had no idea that such a subscription existed. 
Check out all the goodies included in this subscription!

So, first let me start by saying my son tore into the kit before I could take many photos! I literally only have the photo above thanks to him! He was super excited to get this. I knew I should have taken photos while he was in school. But nooooo, I gotta be the cool mom and show him right away what he got... lesson learned. 

So the photo above is the first box. You get a lunchbox, and everything you need to start out. The Constellation collection is fun because you get a new card each month to add onto the key ring. You get a sticker puzzle of part of the sky and planets. This first box came with wax sticks that he can use to make whatever he wanted. The instructions showed him how to make glasses, then he went crazy and started making other things with it, like people and shapes. 

There are also papers with puzzles and fun games that tell you about the constellations, and why they're named what they're named. The intro box also includes a general intro information page, to tell you what you can expect each month. There is also a large map that you can place the coordinating sticker for each month with each box/lesson.

Each month features puzzles, word searches or other games to help you learn more about the stars. You'll also get a toy, the next sticker for the map, and other fun stuff!

He definitely enjoyed this package! 

"Space Scouts monthly subscription club for kids is a delightful learning adventure aimed at discovering the wonders of the universe! Each month your child will explore a new place in space -- stepping into the worlds of space exploration, space science, and astronomy. Join Roxy and Jett as they scout about the galaxy engaging your child in fun learning activities, hands-on discovery, and exciting challenges. Packages arrive each month filled with fun additions to your collection -- magnets, stickers, toys, and more!"

Space Scouts is a stellar vehicle for launching your child's interest in science & technology! This is not your typical grab-bag subscription box. Space Scouts is a fun, educational experience where each month builds upon the previous. It's a great way to learn!
