Here, the maker of the iconic Astroscan Plus Telescope serves up a cool kit packed with hands-on outer-space experiments that delve into the moon, planets, stars, suns, rockets and more, perfectly primed for budding star gazers. Make a solar system model, chemically powered rocket and telescope? Check, check and check! Runs $34.95.

These ideas are great and even as our children get older it's wonderful that we supported these interests. Our son's loved this, attended Space Camp, visited Cranbrook, loved the Smithsonian Air and Space museum.

It all paid off because they just finished a very difficult college Astronomy course and they both got a B.

I'd urge parents to take these and provide fun learning paths for your children.
