Space Center

We are so fortunate that there is a Space Center near our house.

March and April we have gone to their Space Place. Space Place is “designed to teach pre-schoolers about our plants, solar system and what it takes to be an astronaut.”

Every month we take a “trip” to a different planet. The adventure includes craft, activity, story and a blast off simulation. In March we learned about Uranus and this time we learned about Neptune. Next time we will learn about Pluto. Poor Pluto, am I or am I not a planet, is the question. lol

Zander has lots of fun! Not much for a one year old to do as it is created for 3 to 6 year olds but Lexi seems to enjoy her self.

Mommy and Zander put a puzzle of the solar system together. Zander is looking into space with his telescope he made.
