What do your kids want to do when they grow up?
When we interviewed kids to find out what they dreamed of becoming when they grew up, being an astronaut was high on nearly everyone’s list. (Honestly, a lot of us want to be astronauts too!) To help give kids a jumpstart on this dream we created the Astronaut Starter Kit (part of our new Professions series in the KiwiCo Store, which also include a Vet Starter Kit,for all the animal lovers out there.) The Astronaut Starter Kit is complete with hands-on projects and fun facts designed to spark wonder and “whoa, awesome!” reactions.
Did you know that astronauts orbiting the Earth can see the sun rise every 45 minutes? Or that because there is no wind or water on the moon, the footprints astronauts left there will last for millions of years? These are just a few of the out-of-this world facts your child will find in theAstronaut’s Guide included in the kit!
Becoming an astronaut requires a love of learning and commitment to curiosity. With KiwiCo’s Astronaut Starter Kit, your child can start their journey to the stars without leaving your home!
