Product Details

Big fun, in a little box!
The Ideas & Activities Box is filled to the brim with 60 activities, games, crafts & more.

Presented on wooden coins in a fun, child-friendly way, your child will love reaching in the box and pulling out an activity…it’s a surprise every single time!

Activities are completely flexible and open-ended. Start with one of the simple activities and expand on it if you’d like. Follow your child’s lead as they go! Your child will have fun going on an indoor scavenger hunt, or drawing pictures with their eyes closed. How about a staring contest or turning on music and dancing? You will find all of these ideas and more in the Ideas & Activities Box! The best part is that the ideas and activities never get old...kids can do them over & over again.

When the activities are as child-led as possible, you are providing an opportunity to help build your child’s self-esteem, encourage independent thinking, and grow their decision making skills. Offering child-led, play-based activities by choosing a coin/activity is the perfect way to begin each activity and ensure a child-led experience from start to finish.

Activities and ideas are simple, require little to no prep-work, and use items that you have around the house. If you do not have a specific item, you can substitute something in its place. If an activity is too hard, you can easily adapt it to fit your child. Find a way that works best for you and your child and have fun!

BENEFITS of an Idea Box and Child-Led Play:

•Open-ended Activities
Open-ended activities give your child the perfect opportunity to lead themselves wherever they need to go developmentally. The activities that you will find in your Idea Box can be as long or as short as you want. They are completely flexible. You can start with one of the simple ideas in the box, and then expand on it if you choose. When you let your child lead, they will let you know exactly what needs to happen.

•Communication
With every Idea Box, there is a lot of opportunity to talk, inquire, listen & learn...for both the parent & the child. If you find that dialogue is not a big part of the activities, do not worry...communication is not always verbal.

•Giving Choices
Idea Boxes are meant to be as child-led as possible. This means that your child will be making a lot of choices. When you give your child choices you are providing an opportunity to build their self-esteem and help grow their decision making skills. Choices also provide an opportunity for them to listen, ask questions, and follow simple directions. These are extremely valuable tools that they will keep with them and use throughout their life.

•Encourage Independence
The learning is in the doing. Painful for us parents to watch, but when you feel like doing/fixing/solving something for your child...Stop! See if they can problem solve and find a way to make it work.
