The colouring makes for a beautifully calming activity, while the imagery prompts so much imaginative play - after colouring these pirates, my eldest made an entire swashbuckling adventure using her figures, digging out an eye patch and swiping the chunky belt from my closet!
The space box is bursting with opportunities for fun intergalactic play. Once the figures are decorated, they can be placed in any number of space travel scenarios. We had so much fun drawing a starry sky on our blackboard wall and then placing in our space people. Our next project is to make a papier mache moon for them to land on!
