Sunday Jan 2 we decided it was time to get out of the house. We have had a wonderful relaxing week between Christmas and New Year's but now cabin fever has set in and we needed a distraction. So we packed up the kids and headed into London to the Science museum. The kids and I are going to begin to study the Solar system this month and the museum had an space exhibit that I thought might get us ready to start thinking about the sky!

The kids trying their hands at using Astronauts gloves and completing puzzles. The kids thought it was very hard to do.

We also saw how astronauts sleep, go to the toilet, eat and live in the space shuttle. No one thought the food looked very appetizing.
There were also lots of exhibits on space pictures which the kids loved to look at as well as the history of space exploration. Not sure why I stop taking pictures, it was very crowded there.
After we explored this area we headed to the other floors and had a wonderful day. There were 5 floors to the museum I think we covered 3 before fatigue and hunger set in. We will be back to explore more of this wonderful museum.
I think we are ready to begin our studies on Monday:)
