A few weeks ago I shared Koko’s story about his interest in astronomy. This week I’m sharing our Astronomy centre. This month’s Poppins Book Nook theme is “Beyond Our Planet” which is a perfect fit for Koko’s fascination of all things astronomy. We read through the book Awesome Space Fact files by Miles Kelly.

I have set up our astronomy centre on our chest freezer which is high enough for the kidlets to view, but high enough to keep out of Pixie’s reach.

I received the bulk of the items you see here from South African Astronomical Observatory for free in 2009, in celebration of the International Year of Astronomy.

I made these booklets for Koko and Fifi. You can find them here and I can’t, for the life of me, remember where I got the Solar System booklet download (if you know who the file creator is, please leave a comment below so I can give the proper credit).
