July's Intentional Play wrap-up) got a renovation when we hit space month. Dear Boy and I spent two afternoons painting it first white and then black so we could shoot off into our month of space play. We used regular non-toxic poster paint, so things have been peeling and scratching ever since, but Dear Boy loves it and, for bonus points, he isn't dead or sick from eating the paint.
I filled the box with a set of NASA figurines we picked up from Scienceworks back in September. I'm not normally a fan of plastic guys (err... cowboys and Indians, soldiers? No thanks) but dudes in space suits carrying spanners and walkie-talkies are much more my scene. The moon buggy that came with them is certainly Dear Boy's.
We gathered up a few space themed stickers and plastered away, then sprinkled in a handful of glow-in-the-dark stars. We may have also co-opted Lovely Husband's replicas of a Saturn V and its command/service module and lunar module. He may or may not get them back in one piece.
It's also entirely possible Dear Boy may be introduced to Star Trek
original series, Next Gen, Deep Space 9, Voyager and Enterprise before
the month is out.We have DVDs and are not afraid to indoctrinate.
Do you have any awesome space-themed craft, activities, books or songs? We're always on the look out for more.
