High-Flying Fun With Toy Rockets

The realm of outer space provides children with fun and
exciting ideas about what remains above our planet Earth. From distant planets,
to brilliant stars, to even moons that move in orbit, the universe is an
incredible concept to a young child.
And to any aspiring astronaut, the most incredible thing of
all is the rocket that takes individuals above the clouds to explore the world
beyond. If your child looks up in wonder, here are some ways you can use your
own rocket to search the skies and beyond.
Rockets at Night
There is no better time than at night to play with rockets,
especially when the stars are at their brightest. The next time you and your
children head out for a night of fun in the backyard, bring with you the Skylight
Rocket to send a rocket into space. This great kids toy includes two
light-up rockets that can be launched into the night sky. The rockets flash
blue and red and can be seen from a distance. The rockets are also attached to
an air pump, and can be shot above simply by jumping on the bladder of air.
This great kids toy also comes with three non-lighting
rockets and can be used for daytime fun as well. This is a great way for
younger children to use their imaginations and send their own rocket into the
wonders of space.
If your child loves to learn about space and beyond, and
would like to find a rocket that reaches as high as the clouds above, consider
helping them build their own rocket with a kids model rocket kit. Most model
rocket sets come with full instructions on how to assemble the rocket, as well
as a detailed explanation of the necessary steps.
The setup of a model rocket is very simple, but an adult
should only handle the launch. Because launching the model rocket involves the
use of an engine, an electrical connection, and an ignitor, it is something
that should never be attempted by a child without full adult supervision. Educate
your child on this strict rule before playing together with a model rocket.
Using a model rocket is a great way to see your own creation
fly into the sky above, and feel like an astronaut as it explores the world
above the clouds.
Head to the Museum
While playing with rockets is fun, it can be just as
exciting for your child to experience the look and feel of a rocket up close. Head
to the nearest science or space museum, or even the planetarium, and ask about
their exhibits on space exploration. Many museums in larger areas will have
remnants of spacecraft, or even fully disassembled rockets for children to
view. Take your child through the spaceship and show them all of the exciting
things aboard. This is a great way for your child to explore the wonderful life
of an astronaut.
As your child looks towards the sky, they will be in
constant amazement over all of the fun and exciting things that remain above. Try
these fun rocket activities to search the skies together, and to send your own
rocket into the world beyond.
