My boy asked me once, what's inside earth. What earth is made of? I told him earth is round and he thought I was lying. he went..."you must be kidding me" lolz!
So to explained and make it more interesting for him to learn about the earth, I then hand crafted the earth play dough by layering it with red, orange, yellow, blue and the green land. And that's how the idea of the improved version of space kit came about.
We then cut the "earth" play dough into half, he was so amazed how earth looks on the inside. Was so much more easier to explain to him as well. My girl on the other hand can't wait to squash and flatten the "earth" play dough and see what happen next. 😆
I added the planets in this kit, teaching them the solar system. Each planet has it's own orbit going round the sun. Explaining to them which planet is the closes to sun. My boy then replied he doesn't wanna live in Mercury because it is the closest to sun and is gonna be so hot 🥵!
It was really fun learning and playing with them together.
To be honest, I have no idea the sequences of the solar system till I actually work on this kit! And this is also the reason why I love most in what I'm doing, I am able to share and inspired and empower other mamas and kids out there with these activity kits! 😄
I then asked my kids too, " do you think there are other living thing living in other planet?"
My boy answered :"you mean alien?"
Me :"Yes, alien. Do you think there are aliens out there?"
My Boy :"There are no such thing as alien!"
Me :"Why not? We could be an alien to the alien 😁."
He got confused then.....🤣
We never know right?
So we made aliens out of play dough.
Making alien 👽 is so much more fun because we can never be wrong. It can be any shape or any color. This was one of my girl's favorite activity 😄.
Lastly, I let them play freely, making their own outer space scene...so I could escape some me time 😉
and here is their outcome!
What can I say? Simply awesome!
I manage to capture a video and here is the link for you
