One area of science which they find extremely interesting is space. My eight-year old grandson things it would be amazing to be able to travel to Mars. But, short of doing this he loves the opportunity to star-gaze. So, when I had the opportunity to receive and review a telescope from Celestron, I knew my grandsons were going to be thrilled!
Celestron sent me their FirstScope Telescope - a perfect first telescope - to try with my grandsons and then let you know all about it. I am still waiting for the opportunity to use it with my grandsons as pretty much every weekend they have been at my house since it arrived, it has been cloudy or someone has been sick. But, since I do not want to wait any longer to let you know about this telescope, I'm going to write about it today and then again when I can share with you what happens when my grandsons are able to give it a try.
Made by - Celestron
Favorite Features -
- Easy to use
- Great, portable size
- Comes with two eyepieces
- Affordable and priced as an entry-level telescope
- Puts the "fun" in exploring space from a family's backyard!
If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing - which will be on May 29, 2017, please comment below to tell me what you might do to celebrate and watch the eclipse with your grandchildren - I think a camp out the night before and an eclipse watching party might be in store for us.
In addition if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG or at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email you will receive one entry for each of these which you have done. Plus, if you "share" this post, you'll receive another entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win one EclipSmart Deluxe Solar Observing & Imaging Kit and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
