This is Space Week (4th – 11th October) and to do my part, I’ve decided to show off any space-related toys that I stock.
This wooden musical toy is shaped like a rocket. Twist it to wind it up and as it rotates slowing back, it plays the tune ‘Twinkle, Twinkle’. This would make a gorgeous gift for small space loving child.
2. If your child loves the stars, it’s easy to bring them into their very own room with this pack of 50 glow in the dark stars. Why don’t you attempt to stick them up in constellation patterns that your child will recognize?
3. This Space Discovery Kit is a science kit that you can learn all about Space from.
4. Finally, if your child loves imaginary play and dreams of being an astronaut then buying them a Lottie doll and this Astronaut costume (discontinued, sorry) for the doll is a must.
This wooden toy for toddlers is great for developing their fine motor skills. Tap the keys with the hammer an an astronaut, rocket or alien will shoot into the air!
It’s worth taking a look at Space Week’s Website as they have loads of events running all week all over Ireland. They also have a lovely family resources page on their website with space-themed craft and science activities for children.
Enjoy the week,
