Design an Outer-Space Scene
This is one of the 41 activities your child can play in Busy Little Brains.
You can create an incredible animated cosmic scene in this activity. Use the mouse to place the astronauts, comets, asteroids, space ships, shuttle, satellites, planets, moons, sun, and galaxies around the screen in a constantly-changing picture. Most of these objects move on their own too, once you get them started. And Chopin mazurkas make the perfect musical accompaniment.
There are eight different background scenes portraying planets and starscapes; to get a new one, click on the background.
This activity encourages creativity and imagination, and teaches some space-related words.
