ExploreSandbox 0025: Trip to Outer Space

Join us on an adventure that’s out of this world! Learn about the planets, stars and moons. Ever wonder what else is out there? C’mon, let’s journey into space – only in this month’s ExploreSandbox!


First, let's meet the planets. Paint them to look just like the real ones. Hang them in your room and daydream away! Next, make a kaleidoscope. Watch numerous shapes, colors and patterns form as you view the billions of “stars” in our galaxy. 

​Play with our homemade cosmic sand. Explore the textures and shapes of different heavenly bodies.


Finally, in our science activity, you will learn about thrust and air pressure. Watch how it affects the distance and speed of an object in space.
