We are so, so very excited to send out January’s Discovery Box! Our project designers had a field day with the “Nature” theme, and came up with some incredible activities. We will be shipping this amazing Nature Box to subscribers in early January! Want to get in on the fun? Join or Gift a Subscription by January 4th! (Note that limited quantities are available so order early!)
Here’s a look at each of the amazing projects for kids:
Project 1: Naturalist Kit
Kids will go outside to find different elements of nature. They’ll use the included magnifying glass to look at leaves, branches, and other findings and think about the differences and similarities of these various specimens.
Then, they’ll use the glue to decorate the included Field Bag with these natural pieces. They will also decorate a cover for a Nature Journal, which they will then string together and use to record their thoughts about nature, to write a story or do some drawing.
Project 2: Pinecone Birdfeeder
Use the delicious peanut butter from Justin’s to make a special treat for our feathered friends using a pinecone from Pinecones of the Northwest and birdseed from Duncraft. Then tie the string around the pinecone and hang outside near a window. Keep a look out for thankful birds!
Project 3: Sun Print
Use one of your specimens from Project 1 to create a beautiful Sun Print using our special, magical paper and the power of the sun coming in through a bright window! After your print has been created, insert it into the recycled paper frame, and hang or display in your home.
As mentioned, we will be shipping this amazing Nature Box to subscribers in the beginning of January! Join or Gift a Subscription by January 4th to get in on the fun — note that limited quantities are available so order early!
