Fun in the Box
This subscription box is just as the name says, Fun in the Box. Each box contains 3 to 5 kid’s toys, crafts, and games that are all unique and not widely on the market. A focus of the box is to have at least one item to help foster playtime with Mom and Dad.
When you order, you will add your child’s age to make sure the items are age-appropriate. You can then choose to give the box every three months or for a specific birthday or holiday.

The sports to choose from include basketball, football, baseball, softball, hockey, and soccer. Choose your child’s age to make sure they get an age-appropriate gift going up to age 13.
We like the flexibility of the Sports Box Co. as you can choose from sending gifts one time or every 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months. This keeps kids actively playing the sports they love.
Get your kids learning with hands-on projects that will teach them coding and electronics. The Creation Crate includes all the components needed to create and program projects like light-emitting diodes (LED), Ultrasonic Sensors, Breadboard, Circuits, and more. It’s pretty cool for your techy kids.
We’ve made a cool rubber band race car (pictured above) and Mood Lamp so far and had a great time putting them together.
Many lesson include online videos with step-by-step directions to help complete and learn more about the monthly project. This was really helpful when making our mood lamp.
The suggested age is 12 and up or 8 years old and working with a parent which seemed accurate to us using the kit at home.
