    Interesting topic

    My son really enjoyed building this crate: poking out all of the different constellations was fascinating to him and he had a very rewarding experience once it was completed. I loved the overall concept and enjoy that we can still use it every night to learn more about the night sky.

    Still used in her room

    The finished project was great! My daughter loves looking at the star constellations projected on the ceiling -- it works really well in a dark room. She was so happy with the end result that now she uses it as her night light.

    Educational and informative

    My son loved seeing all the constellations and learning how to make a quadrant to learn the latitude of our house. The end result was great and the magazine included details about constellations she can follow and lookup. It sparked interest for more learning about astronomy and different discussions about the stars.
