Galaxy

3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . blast off! With this Galaxy art box, you and your little one can recreate a few of the amazing parts of outer space right from your kitchen table!

From shooting stars to asteroids to black holes, this box is filled with excitement! Children will blow through a straw to create a nighttime background for shooting stars, and they will use a paint scraper to design their own freeform galaxy with glitter glue. There are lots of embellishments that will add unique details to their artwork, too. Starry glitter, mica powder, and asteroid rocks are sure to be a hit! And, don’t miss the science experiment: the classic baking soda-vinegar reaction is extra fun when black holes are involved.
