Planets - Create a Solar System Mobile Review and GIVEAWAY!! **ENDED**

Creativity for Kids  sells tons of kits for kids of all ages designed to educate and spark creativity in your children. I have featured some really great giveaways this past 2 weeks and this is the final in this series of Creativity for Kids giveaways.


My 7 year old son has already learned about the solar system in school and he took a real interest in learning about the planets. Planets - Create a Solar System Mobile is a great kit that allows your child to create a piece of art that would look great hanging in their room while reminding them about our solar system. The kit has everything you will need to make the mobile and includes some really interesting facts on planets in our solar system.

In the kit:

preprinted mobile base
9 foam balls - assorted sizes
9 hanging cords
air dry clay
craft glue
Saturn's Rings (cardboard)
facts on planets


The recommended age for this kit is 8 and up.  My son is not very artistic. He enjoyed making the solar system, but struggled a bit with spreading the clay over the planets (age 7). My daughter, who is 5, is very artistic and was easily able to accomplish this task. So, depending on your child's ability to manipulate materials such as this, it can probably be purchased for children under the recommended age of 8.  Jack really enjoyed creating different looks for all the planets. He chose to create his own planets versus making the real ones. There was enough clay to fit all the planets and there was still some left over.  It turned out nicely and he now has it hanging in his room.


 

Buy it here: You can purchase this kit, as well as a wide assortment of other great products, from the Creativity for Kids website. A selection of their products is also available on Amazon.

Win it here: One lucky Cake Mom reader is going to win Planets - Create a Solar System Mobile!
