Some kids just cannot recite all the planets of the solar system. There may just be too many of them to remember for some kids. Some may just find memorizing the planets boring. If parents can make learning about planets interesting, I’m sure many kids will yearn for more. Make it even fun by giving kids the Solar System Mobile Wood Painting Kit to do as a project.
The Solar System Mobile Wood Painting Kit will enable the kids to build a mobile composed of the sun and the different planets that revolve around it. The kit features wooden cutouts of the planets and the sun. The kit also comes with paints of different colors to use on the wooden planet cutouts. The cutouts also have raised portions to make it easy for kids to paint them. Once they are done with the initial paint, kids can finish off the project by coating the planets and the sun with the included glow paint to make the mobile glow in the dark. There is also a swirling hanger where kids can attach each planet tied to a string and with labels to complete the whole project.
As they start on this project, kids will learn and identify the planets and their characteristics. Soon enough, the kids will be able to know them by name by the time they are done. They can hang the Solar System Mobile in their room, switch of the lights and marvel at their accomplished project glow in the dark. Aside from developing an interest in astronomy among kids, this painting kit can also develop fine motor as well as creative skills among kids. Ideal for children 4 years old and above, the Solar System Mobile Wood Painting Kit is available at Fat Brain Toys for $16.
