Is your preschooler starting kindergarten this year? Just in time for summer, prepare your little one for class with the fun learning activities contained in a Wonder Box. Created by Education.com, which provides helpful content about preparing for kindergarten through college, Wonder Box is a subscription-based monthly service designed to enrich and entertain children ages 3 to 6. (A monthly subscription starts at $19.99.)
Each month, a box with a different theme (science, crafts, etc.), 3 projects, and other extras (coloring pages, sticker books, etc.) are hand-picked by Education.com experts with the goal of developing your child. The boxes are sent to homes with provided instructions and information about accessing an exclusive website for more activity ideas.
Recently, I got a sneak peek at the first available Wonder Box, which has a “Once Upon a Time” theme. The 3 projects includes a cape to enhance gross motor skills, a puppet to help with shape and pattern recognition, and a pack of story cards to increase reading skills. A story book of “Stone Soup” is included with crayons for coloring.
For busy, on-the-go parents, Wonder Box provides easy, convenient access to a variety of activities and crafts. Families can have quality time together and kids will satisfy their curiosity about the world around them.
