The constellations builder felt board is a great material for combining astronomy with a fine motor skills activity. Board comes with a variety of sticks and dots for creating some of the most popular constellations in the night sky.
The 3-part Montessori cards serve as a guide and reinforce the learning. The cards are glossy and high-resolution and come with a handy 3-part card felt pouch for easy storage.
It's the latest addition to our line of Montessori astronomy. Getting our kids curious about astronomy at an early age is the greatest hope we have of creating future scientists and, who knows, maybe even the next Einstein!
