The package arrived today! At first, Katie was thrilled to have mail, and then gasped when she heard it was full of NASA items.
We dug into the box, and found a miniature astronaut and Space Shuttle, plus a patch and two big decals. There were lots of activity booklets with mazes and connect-the-dot games, plus a coloring book. She also got a shell necklace, paper soap (that was a fun little experiment in the bathroom!), and a deck of miniature cards.
The best part of the box was the REAL astronaut food. There were freeze-dried strawberries and freeze-dried ice cream. We immediately started snack time and tried the ice cream. It wasn't too bad - like a chalky marshmallow that got gooey in your mouth. Katie said, "I'm going to eat this every day!" She said the ice cream was her favorite part of the box.
What a fun, educational package! Thank you, Heather, for taking the time to send everything to our budding space enthusiast. We truly appreciate it!
