DIY Solar System Mobile

02 Aug

Here’s a fun project for a rainy summer day with your budding astronomer.  Or a fun end-of-summer project for those kids complaining of boredom.  The Discovery Science Center Solar System Mobile-Making Kit ($20) looks fantastic.  No glue required and it glows in the dark.  Suggested for ages 8 and up.  I’d love to do Jenna’s room in a solar system theme and accessorize with this.  Also a great project to supplement home-school lessons about planets and the solar system.

    The Eldest’s room is space-themed. He has a big wallpaper mural on one wall and planets like this hanging from the ceiling. Way cool in eight-year-old land.

    I think it’s way cool and I’m WAY older than 8! I also think it’s a fun theme for boys or girls, but we’ll see if my little pink princess thinks anything but pink, flowers, fairies or princesses is OK….
