Space Quest: Over and Out!

As an educator, science is one of my all time favorite subjects, so when I heard about the "Space Quest" line that Little Passports recently debuted, I was ecstatic. I am all about educational activities for my kids (especially during the summer months!) My boys are extremely interested in space themes and couldn't wait to see what this subscription entailed. Read below to see what we discovered this month.

"Over and Out" Poster

Most of the kits Little Passports creates come with pamphlets including directions, project information, and trivia. Switching it up a bit, the Space Quest version sends a brightly colored informational poster instead, featuring pictures and facts about the month's space theme. I love how colorful this month's poster is. Featuring words like: "Radio Frequency Relay System" and "Transponder Amplification System", we learned many new spacey terms!



On the backside of the poster, we received partial instructions for this month's Solar-Powered Radio project. Also included was a separate sheet with the initial instructions for the build. Not only does it list necessary materials, but also trivia and the scientific background to this month's project.

Solar-Powered Radio Project


This month we received the necessary supplies to build our very own Solar-Powered Radio. In the past our boxes have contained more than one project, but this particular project was quite large and included quite a few pieces. Included materials are an FM receiver, speaker, speaker case, speaker platform, dish frame, knob, column anchor, solar panel, solar panel platform, antenna pieces, turn column, dish backing, and satellite base. The pieces went together nicely and were high quality, so we were very excited to put this thing together!


Because of baseball, we had to do this project in sections and it went okay. First Charlie read through the included instructions and was a little overwhelmed by all of the language and steps. This box is geared towards 5-8 year olds, and while he is 8 and a very handy little man, he struggled. Side by side we took a look at the instructions and learned that you must read through them rather than just relying on the pictures. Finally making it to step 2, we had to set the kit aside and get ready to hit dingers at the ballpark.


Day two we really got into the bones of this solar-powered radio. Charlie had no idea what to expect from this kit, but was really excited to get to the end result. Working through each step very carefully we got this radio put together, but I have to say, I struggled a bit getting the folded pieces to lock into place. Once together Charlie toted it around outside everywhere he went!

With a turn of a knob and a little sunlight, this radio will blare some tunes and Charlie was really fired up about it. While the directions were tricky and he needed a lot of assistance, this turned out to be a great project that is very useful during our games of "HORSE".


After a little prior experience with the Little Passports: Space Quest box, I can say, this subscription is always a surprise. With a theme like "Over and Out" we weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. Age wise I have to say this was a little advanced for Charlie to do on his own, but was great as a family project. Overall, we loved the supplemental aspect this box added to our at-home curriculum, and can't wait to see what next month's theme might be. What did you think about this subscription line? Have you given it a try yet?
