Everybody loves dens!!
We decided to transform the kitchen table again and this time our mission was to head to space in an under table rocket with our toddler spaceman…
Here’s what we did…
Our prep started with making some alien sensory specimen bottles, we filled bottles with water & added a few drops of food colouring and some play dough outer space snakes..
We made our own solar system using ball pit balls and a football covered in tin foil..
We then set about building our rocket… I used a large piece of cardboard covered in wall paper for the flight deck & cut out a circle for the port hole..
I covered the table with an old black duvet cover and lay a blanket on the floor..
Finally I made a NASA sign 🙂
We covered some wellies and added liberal amounts of tape around and around them…
We used a cardboard box covered with tin foil for our space helmet.
Our space suit was simply a white babygro with a printed NASA sign stuck to it..
I put the table by the window and closed the curtain, I then added some cut out moons and stars to the curtain
We played inside whilst we whizzed through the stars…
(I used sticky tape to attach some battery operated fairy light to the under table ceiling.)
We had an out of this world time! Do try more Star Gazing Fun Ideas.
