Groovy Planet Review & Giveaway
School's Out!! Well for most anyhow, we tend to keep 'schooling' year round as home schoolers. I love to introduce lots of Fun School though in the summer!
Groovy Planet is a monthly themed based, activity box. You can subscribe to it at My Groovy Planet.
Each box is themed based on our planet and how we can help preserve it! Fair trade, keeping our oceans clean, water conservation, and world hunger are just a few of the themes that Groovy Planet has provided so far.
The box is geared for 8-12 year olds but can easily be adapted for other children to join in.
I love Groovy Planet's mission " Our mission is to give kids the inspiration, passion and tools to take care of our planet and make a positive impact on the world around them."
The boxes are so fun, that they aren't even realizing that their character is getting developed and they are learning life skills.
Now is the time to invest in our children and teach them how to be sensitive to the needs of the world. Don't let your summer slip by without thinking globally!
Our box included the Welcome kit as well as the Peru theme. The theme kit included a fair trade Peru instrument, a paper disk of activities and crafts and a sticker for your passport. Each kit now will also include a calendar for the parents with activities, facts, and interesting information to tie the theme into the month.
I love the idea of themes like this, as a homeschooler we do a lot with themes as you can incorporate many ages. I would have liked to see just a little bit more material in the box, more ideas and perhaps a craft to do hands on for the price. I think the added calendar will be a great help for the parents.
Groovy Planet is offering a one month kit for A winning Year of Jubilee Review reader!
