What a great little night light this is – educational, fun, and inexpensive, too.

The Casagami Solar Nightlight is a fantastic way to teach children about solar energy.

The little night light comes as a kit, so you construct the little cardboard house then install the solar module on the roof. 

Once installed, the solar panel draws energy from the light in your home throughout the day, and then the little house lights up when the sun goes down.

According to the Casagami website, the solar-powered light can last for five hours. It can take between five and 20 hours to charge, depending on how much sun there is on the day, and does best when placed in front of a window.  

It offers another activity too - as the house comes in a plain colour, the kids can have fun decorating the cardboard house however they please.

Each house costs £6.99 (AU$12.50) from UK site Culture Label, plus shipping. It can also be found on Etsy for AU$10.60 (plus shipping), and in select gift shops and science stores in Australia.
