Play, fun, and relaxation have an essential role in brain development. Research conducted on brain development emphasizes that if the fun is stopped, the learning will stop. It is found that fun and new experiences promote emotional strength and resilience.
When you get the Space Explorers Box, you will receive lots of fun and developmentally supportive activities inspired by EYFS and STEAM. All the boxes are curated by a Developmental Psychologist & Play Therapist, and two Mums.

Here at EDUcreate Resources, we create pretend play sets and themed educational activity sets for pre-school and infant school children. Our themed sets are filled with play-based learning activities, games and simple crafts so children can learn key skills in a fun and engaging way. Our sets are delivered fully prepped with full instructions and ideas for each activity – so you can just open the box and you’re ready to go! Most games and activities are reusable (laminated and wipe clean), allowing for repetitive play to strengthen understanding and build confidence. As your child develops, the activities can also be adapted and used in a different way, making them great for growing children but also families with multiple ages.
Our Space Theme activity set is one of our most popular products. Your little learners will have a blast learning the names of planets and famous astronauts, whilst also covering fundamental topics such as shapes, writing/mark making and counting. In addition to the 10 educational activities, each set also comes with a personalised log book to keep a track of your activities, play tickets and a personalised planner.
The set is available in two age groups – pre-school/reception and KS1. We also have sibling sets available – just drop us a message on Etsy and we are happy to discuss the set that it right for your family.
