Kids are quite fascinated about outer space and the planets at a very early age. The vast and unexplored space becomes a fertile ground where kid’s imaginations can run wild. As kids try to know more about outer space, they get to know about the planets and the solar system. They may want to picture out how each planet may look like. This DIY Solar System Kit will help them do just that.
The DIY Solar System Kit will allow kids to create their own solar system and the individual planets using yarn and special glue. Kids blow up a balloon and coat it with special glue. They then try to spin the yarn around the balloon and let the glue harden. Once that is done, kids just pop the balloon inside and then paint the resulting yarn planet with a desired color using watercolor paint.
Kids can use the DIY Solar System Kit as a science fair or school project. They can also just do it to feed their fascination with the planets and the solar system. It can help provide kids with a visual perspective of how the different planets compare to each other. The kit comes with yarn, balloons, watercolor paints, special glue, paintbrush, paint palette, food color dye tablets and a 16-page instruction manual. This science kit is ideal for kids from 8 years old and above. It is available at Think Geek for $20.
