I firmly believe that learning should be fun and centered around play for young children. If Bryson enjoys the process, he’s more likely to be encouraged and excited to learn. The folks at Education.com believe this too and have introduced Wonder Box, a monthly subscription service that offers creative activities shipped right to your door.
The first thing you’ll notice when the Wonder Box arrives is the gorgeous packaging. The extra effort and attention to detail in each box is impressive. From the colors to the printed tags and instructions, the entire box is visually appealing. Each project is packaged separately
Wonder Box Contents
There are three activities offered in each Wonder Box and sometimes you’ll find bonus projects. To give you an idea of what you could receive, check out the three sample boxes from previous months. We received the Mad Scientist Wonder Box filled with three projects and a bonus recipe for Bubble Bread. I love that this box is fun for kids AND it teaches starting science, sorting and patterning, and color exploration.
We chose the I Spy Bottle as our first Wonder Box activity. It came with a clear, plastic bottle half filled with corn syrup, a pack of alphabet beads, and a pack of sequins. After opening the alphabet beads, Bryson picked out the letters to add to our bottle. As he picked them out, he shared with me the letter name and the sound it makes, then we counted each one as he dropped it into the bottle. After that, I poured the sequins in and we talked about how the corn syrup felt- was it sticky? was it runny? etc. Finally, we filled the bottle with water and talked about how corn syrup and water don’t mix.
With this one Wonder Box project, we covered the alphabet, counting, colors, and science! Even better, the I Spy Bottle is fun even after the project is finished. Both Bryson and Bella have continued to play with it, twisting & turning, hunting letters and colors, and simply enjoying watching the sequins and beads float around.
Also in the Mad Scientist Wonder Box
Kids use the magnetic magic wand to discover “what sticks” then keep the learning going with color and shape BINGO.
Share the broad world of science while sneaking in color and shape identification practice.
No better place to learn a bit of chemistry than in your own kitchen!
