Christmas Gift Guide: Astronomy
Do you have a little astronaut running around your house or a star gazer who pours over astronomy books?
Are you wondering what to get your little astronomer for Christmas?
I have some great ideas for you.
These are some fun gifts that any little space lover will find delightful.
The Uncle Goose blocks are simple wooden blocks with painted planets, moon phases, or constellations painted on, but they are so much more! There is so much information on them! For anyone who is really interested in space science, it will be a blessing!
In addition, I have seen little star gazers flip over the inflatable planets. You can hang them from the ceiling or toss them around. Hours of fun will ensue and the whole family will end up wanting to play with the inflatable solar system.
Finally, you have to have something with a motor. How about a motorized solar system with planets spinning around the sun.
One of these gifts is sure to be a hit with your little astronaut. They are all available at Amazon. Just click on the link or the photos below to learn more about them and how to order them.
Oh, and Happy Christmas Shopping!

Learning Resources Giant Inflatable Solar System
Learning Resources Giant Inflatable Solar System includes 8 planets, Pluto, the sun, the moon, repair kit, activity guide, and foot pump. We had a blast with these, tying them from the ceiling!
This is a super fun way to try to figure out the distance from the sun each planet is. We even enjoyed tossing the inflatable balls back and forth before we hung them.
