World Space Week: Giveaway and Craft ideas

This week is World Space week – running from the 4th – 10th October.

With both my children now in school they are even more fascinated by the world around them, they love looking at the stars in the night sky – and always point out the brightest as being Nanny’s star (we named a star for their Nanny after she passed away). They also have the planets on a mobile hanging from our kitchen ceiling so know all the names and what they look like, and even love reading books about space and pretending to walk on the moon.

This Autumn, Ora kitchen towels have partnered with Penguin Random House, the No 1 children’s publisher in the UK, for an exclusive on pack promotion that offers every purchaser of the single stack Ora a free audiobook of Goodnight Spaceman. The Goodnight Spaceman story book is a recent collaboration for the publisher with the European Space Agency and UK astronaut Tim Peake.

To help celebrate this collaboration, I have also teamed up with Ora to bring you a lovely space themed giveaway. One reader will win:
  • A single stack of Ora
  • A hardback copy of ‘Goodnight Spaceman’  by Michelle Robinson and Nick East
  • Some Astronaut Food.

Why is Ora different to normal kitchen towel?

It comes stacked in single easy to grab sheets, no more tearing off and wasting. It also has twice the number of sheets and is super strong, absorbent and versatile. Plus the unique round shape is perfect for crafting with the kids. Emmy recently spent quite a while drawing Neptune and Earth this weekend – I think she did really well considering she was doing them from memory.If however you are looking for other ideas for space themed crafts then I pass you over to the following bloggers who have created some wonderful master pieces which you can follow:

  2. No my daughter hasn’t had anything about space week at their school which is odd because they’ve even had teachers (last year) paint all the planets on the wall in the playground

  3. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as space week, however my daughter is only in year 1 so hopefully in future years they will celebrate it.

  4. My niece isn’t following it as far as I know but she always says she doesn’t remember what she’s done at school hehe so she could have been!

  5. I am currently expecting and when you asked that question it made me look forward to the times when I can celebrate Space Week with them!

  6. Yes, and my this half term my youngest daughter’s topic at school has been ‘space’ so she has been doing lots of space activities these past few weeks and changed her career dreams of becoming a vet to a spacewoman instead!
