Since we have starting working on renovating the Explore Your Playful Nature kids area into a space/night theme, we have learned tons of interesting things about planet. They are a part of our solar system, but sometimes all we learn about them are the order they are from the sun and how big they are relative to Earth.

And sometimes we don't even learn that.

Plus, when I was in school Pluto was still a regular planet, not a dwarf planet like it is considered today. That made the way I remembered the planet orders obsolete, so I had to look up a new way. This one made me laugh --- My Very Exciting Mother Just Served Us Noodles (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune).

Since we've been excited about planets lately, here are some fun planet facts to share with your friends.
