Fun Kids Activities In Your Mailbox: Wonder Box Giveaway

Designed for curious kids 3 to 6, Wonder Box is a subscription service that delivers a box full of fun activities right to your door.  That is right, activities, plural.  Each Wonder Box includes instructions and everything needed to complete 3 creative, hands-on projects that explore a theme kids love (like “Once Upon a Time or “The Mad Scientist”).

Wonder Box works with a team of teachers and curriculum experts to choose activities that build critical kindergarten skills.  Parents and kids test all the activities to make sure their fun-factors gets top marks.  Wonder Box recipients also get access to an exclusive web page full of additional activity ideas.

Wonder Box is fun and educational.  The Wonder Box Activities are designed to teach:

sorting & patterning
number sense
letters & phonics
shape recognition
color exploration
fine motor skills
gross motor skills
reading readiness
starting science

My kids are 5 and 7 and they were fortunate enough to get a Wonder Box in the mail.  They loved it.  Honestly, I knew they would love it but I had no idea I would love the Wonder Box as much as I do.  I was totally impressed by the large number of Wonder Box fun activities.  I was also impressed by the quality and thoughtfulness of the activities and the  variety of skills they addressed.

Each month is something new but in our box, there was a classic kids book, Stone Soup, that needs coloring in and some of the pages allow for them to draw in the illustrations.  They loved hearing the story and they are still enjoying  coloring it in and I love that it will be a great keepsake as well.  There was also a cape.  My son has been pretending to be a prince all week with his cape.  One side of the cape is white and it came with special fabric pastels that he can use to draw on the cape.  There was also a puppet making set which my kids both loved doing together.  They made a dragon.  Everything they needed was in the box from glue to crayons.  My kids went right to work designing and playing without me for hours and then came back to me to show me what they had created and have me read the story.  There were also storytelling cards that have pictures and can be used in a variety of ways to spark stories- plus, they came in a nice metal box to store them in for use over and over.  I really was impressed with the Wonder Box and I will suggest it my relatives as a great gift that they can get the kids that lasts for months with fun, educational activities.  Also, I think the Wonder Box is very reasonably priced at just $19.99/month.  They offer a number of different subscription options and several gift packages as well.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a Wonder Box! This would be a huge hit in my house! I did ALL 5 of the actions listed above to enter the give-away. When I visited Wonderbox’s website, there wasn’t a place to leave a comment, so I left a comment (actually 2) on their Facebook page (and also “liked” them). Thanks again!

    I love the organizing different projects – makes it easier for the parent to do this with the child instead of searching hopelessly for something. I love the build-a-puppet craft.

  24. Corey Olomon says

    I like that they have a variety of plans so you can either do short term to see if you like it and then long term to save money.
