Join the Fun! Space Camp for June Art
Are your kids fascinated by the idea of space? Mine too! The solar system can be such an exciting area of study. Most of us still remember learning about all of the planets and space exploration when we were kids.
Isn’t it funny how you remember certain things you learned as a child? Usually, we recall the things that stuck out the most because the lessons were exciting or had an element of hands-on education included.
That is precisely what we are going to help you create at home! We have some exciting and affordable ideas to help you create a space camp with art in your homeschool or maybe for fun this summer at home.
You can find out about Summer Space Camp HERE.
