Ivy Kits are a monthly educational subscription for children ages 3-8 developed by early childhood teachers with children of their own. Their goal is to provide monthly resources and tools to parents and caregivers looking to have more meaningful learning experiences with their children. Each month you will receive a kit containing more than ten activities based upon a classic children’s book. The activities have been carefully crafted to encourage curiosity, problem solving, and creativity in young children. The Ivy Kit games and projects are a fun way to develop fine and gross motor muscles, build math and literacy skills, encourage reading comprehension, and promote scientific thinking. Each Ivy Kit contains instructions with ways to modify games to best suit each individual child and provide adults with questions to structure a child’s learning. There are enough games and materials in each kit to engage and cognitively stimulate a child throughout the month and can be replayed for years to come.

The August Ivy Kit, Mouse Paint, is more of the same activity types, but themed for the book. Immediately Callan wanted to do projects. And we have done a number of the Frog ones. I have to say that this is thee best subscription box for kids that I have ever reviewed! So many different projects, and many of them you can use over and over, or use in different ways in play!
