The inquisitive child
I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen parents roll their eyes or respond “just because” when their child has asked them a question. I’ve done it myself, normally when I’m in a hurry or doing several things at once – but I try not to. I try not to because really I love their questions, I love the fact that they care enough about the world to ask so many questions, I love the fact that they aren’t prepared to just accept something is a particular way just because.
Do you have inquisitive children who are always asking questions about how things work? Are you looking for a unique Christmas present for the kids that will turn them away from screens, regularly? Then, The Curiosity Box has the gift both you and your children are after.
A new type of subscription box
Each month subscribers to The Curiosity Box receive everything they need to conduct science experiments at home. From just £6.95 a month, including postage and packaging, a box of themed, science based fun bursting with experiments, activities and collectables arrives through the letterbox. Sounds fun right?
All boxes, which are curriculum linked for 4 – 11 year olds, are jam-packed with hands-on activities and clear instructions to help kids discover science, engineering and maths. With a little help from parents, budding Brian Coxs’ and aspiring Marie Curies’ will be able to make potions and carry out experiments with everything contained in the box, including their very own lab kit. A useful kit for any home-schooling families perhaps?
Available in three different sizes – Pico, Nano and Jumbo – for 7-11 year olds, plus a recent launch of the Curiositots box, specifically designed for 4-6 year olds, the boxes support the National Curriculum. To ensure the kids in your life are regularly inspired by the wonders of science, simply choose a box for the relevant age of your child and pay month to month or pre-pay for 3, 6 or 12 month periods to make a saving. Subscription is flexible too, with the option of pausing deliveries. Single boxes are also available, and there is a special pre-Christmas offer on at the moment too – 15% off all subscriptions!
The number of times I’ve heard parents say this year that they don’t know what to buy for their child for Christmas this year seems huge. I also cringe slightly when I hear parents talk about how much they’ve spent on the latest games console or mobile phone for their child. This makes a perfect gift – educational, heaps of fun and totally different as a gift idea. Let’s think outside the box this Christmas!
