What is Flexiboard?
Flexiboard is our new lightweight, thin plastic product, perfect for easy storage. It's water-proof and scratch-resistant, however it's not strong enough to hold its shape on its own and we recommend pairing it with either a wood or acrylic insert to act as a base. It is also flexible but care should be taken not to bend it more than 90 degrees as this may cause it to break.

Explore outer space with this imaginative set.
A Flexiboard planet and space set with UV printing offers an exciting and educational opportunity for children to engage in imaginative play while learning about space. Here's how this set can be utilized to encourage learning and creative play:
Astronaut Pretend Play: Children can role-play as astronauts exploring outer space. They can use the Flexiboard pieces to create scenarios involving space missions, lunar landings, and spacewalks. This kind of imaginative play encourages creativity, problem-solving, and the development of storytelling skills.
Learning Planets: This set of pieces representing different planets in our solar system. Children can learn the names of the planets, their order from the sun, and some basic facts about each planet. This hands-on approach to learning helps improve memory retention and reinforces their understanding of the solar system.
Vocabulary Development: As children engage in pretend play and learn about planets, they'll encounter new space-related vocabulary. They can learn words like "orbit," "galaxy," "constellation," and more. This exposure to new terminology enhances their vocabulary and language skills.
Cooperative Play: Children can play together, taking turns as astronauts and mission control personnel. This fosters teamwork, cooperation, and communication skills as they work together to explore space and carry out missions.
Scientific Curiosity: Engaging with a space-themed set may spark children's interest in astronomy and science. They might begin to ask questions about space, leading to further exploration and learning about the universe.
Imaginative Adventures: The set can inspire children to create their own space adventures and stories. They can use their imaginations to invent alien encounters, intergalactic travel, and even imagine future technologies and discoveries.
Overall, a Flexiboard planet and space set with UV printing offers a blend of educational learning and imaginative play. Children can have fun while pretending to be astronauts, learning about planets, improving their vocabulary, and igniting their curiosity about the cosmos.
