Have Fun Exploring, Playing & Learning!

Most children can’t help but be fascinated by Astronomy and Space in general. I think it’s just the coolest subject out there with so many fascinating places to explore and discover. And that’s just in our solar system, let alone out Milky Way Galaxy or further out into the universe. I know I’ve been fascinated by space since I was a child so loved to learn and be amazed by any astronomy activity where I could learn more!
