If you have a budding astronomer or astronaut in your home, then I have found the perfect gift that will make you a star this holiday season! The Smithsonian Exploration Station: Solar System is an activity box that delves deep into outer space in a fun, educational way.
The Solar System exploration station includes a book, a poster, reusable stickers, glow in the dark stars, and space play figures, plus a unique storage box that holds everything (and is flat on the bottom so it can easily sit on its side on a bookshelf.
The 56 page fact book is a paperback with quality high gloss pages, full of amazing photographs and  interesting facts about the planets, the moon, comets, and much more. Targeted towards school-agers, the exploration station will answer some of their questions, and will likely spark new intrigue about the solar system.
The five play figures are definitely going to be a favorite aspect of the Solar System exploration station. Everyone loves to countdown and blast off to the moon! Included are two astronauts, a satellite, a space shuttle, and a rocket, all made of a durable plastic.
The laminated poster and the reusable stickers are a fabulous way to become more accustomed to where the planets orbit around the sun in our solar system. There are three sheets of stickers for a total of 30 stickers, including the planets and their names. Your child will spend hours exploring the Solar System!
There are also 22 glow in the dark stars, made of plastic, and two sheets of double-sided sticky dots, so you can adhere the stickers to your child's bedroom ceiling. When darkness falls, the stars will cast a soft light. You could even arrange them in a constellation!
I think the Solar System exploration station from Smithsonian is fantastic! My own kids loved these kinds of activity boxes when they were younger and I know yours will love it too. There are several different exploration station themes available.
