Space Scouts Review




Space Scouts is an affordable monthly subscription club designed to engage your child in the worlds of space exploration, space science, and astronomy.

Space Scouts is not your typical grab-bag subscription box!  This is a fun, educational experience where each month builds upon the previous.  It's a great way to learn!  

Space Scouts is for kids ages 6+.  Price is affordable at $11.95 per month + $3 shipping.  Discounts for multi-month purchases.

Product Details:

ROXY and JETT will guide your child on a scouting expedition through the solar system, with focus on a specific place in space each month. Begin the adventure with the Space Scouts lunchbox to use as a backdrop and storage for the monthly magnet collection, the Space Scouts solar system poster to map and mark with the monthly exploration sticker, and the Space Scouts constellation card startup kit to hold the monthly constellation card collection.
Each monthly packet will include a Space Scouts exploration plan describing the place to be scouted, a Space Scouts magnet to add to the Space Scouts lunchbox, a Space Scouts sticker to add to the Space Scouts solar system poster, a Space Scouts activity sheet loaded with puzzles, games, and activities, a Space Scouts sticker scramble (unscramble the numbered stickers to reveal a surprise!), a Space Scouts souvenir toy to use in learning activities, a Space Scouts constellation card, and a Space Scouts constellation activity sheet that includes the mythological stories and other learning activities to help your child identify the constellation in the night sky.

My Review:
My 7 year old daughter is now asking more and more questions about space and exploration!  My three year old son is a bit too young for this subscription but he is fascinated with the 2 astronaut guys and the claw grabber!  My daughter was also drawn to the astronaut guys asking about the full gear that they have to wear.   

We also took the poster out an immediately were trying hard to remember all the planets.   One big discussion I had with her is the battle over Pluto and discussing how when I grew up it was considered a planet and now they are trying to take it out and not view it as a planet.  

The Space Scouts lunch box is fantastic and my daughter loved the sticker puzzles.   I had fun finding more space resources to teach her more about outer space and missions that we have gone on such as Apollo 11- the trip to the moon!  She was quite fascinated with it.   

After having 2 months I am curious as to what they would send for the following!  It would be nice to have a resource guide for parents on where to find more information about space or space videos that went with the monthly theme.   It did not take me long to find things but it is always nice to know things were already watched to make sure it was kid friendly.  

If you are looking for a great educational gift that keeps on giving month after month then sign up your child or granddaughter to receive a Space Scouts subscription!
