From tiny meteors to giant galaxies, this temporary tattoo collection features planets, all the phases of the Moon, a solar eclipse, a rocket, an astronaut, comets, meteor, constellations (Draco, Pegasus, and more), and dozens of shining stars. Kids ages 4 and up just peel, press, wear, and learn all about stars and planets: It's a fun science lesson with an activity mixed in. After reading up on space facts, kids can share the tattoos with friends, then go outside and explore the universe!
