In celebration of Tim Peake’s safe return to Earth yesterday following six months living and working on the International Space Station (ISS), Freya and I had some space-themed fun, which included making this rocket and space suit.
She seemed really interested in the latest CBeebies Stargazing series and I must admit, as a bit of a space geek in my youth, I enjoyed them too. The week of nightly programmes featured Tim (and Miss Mouse) but I’m not sure Freya quite understood where he was – although, saying that, I’m not sure I can really get my head around it either. She seemed very concerned about him not being able to eat cake, which would be top of my worry list too if I was in space.
We followed his journey back to Earth on the iPad (it helped that he read the bedtime story on Friday night so she recognised him) and then re-enacted it in her rocket. I think she had fun.
