Best Kids Subscription boxes – activity boxes

Being a parent, we’re all looking for new and creative ways to engage kids. From birth to 5 years, a child’s brain develops at the highest pace. And this is the reason, why early stimuli have a great impact on a child’s personality in the later years. What matters in these early formative years are the right explorations, positive stimuli, and quality Psychosocial experiences. Remember in our Parenting Journey, these experiences along with the genetics play an important role in a child’s behavior. With the way, digitization is taking over every age group, these subscription boxes, aka, activity boxes act as a breather. Let me tell you’ll, I’m not at all against the screen time. If we cannot give away our screen time, how can we expect kids to do so? But what matters is a right balance between the mindful screen time and delightful engaging activities.

While I’ll talk about mindful screen time soon this week, here, I’ll be sharing some of the best activity boxes available in India for kids. As a Parent, I’ve experienced all of these subscription boxes for kids. What after 30-45minutes of screen time a day? These activity boxes act as a perfect parenting partner due to the innovative and interactive learning which they offer. Let me tell you, most of these kits will act as an equilibrium between the Right and Left sides of the brain. While your child will certainly enjoy the creativity involved, their logical side will also become strong.

Conclusion on Kids subscription boxes (Activity boxes):

Convinced enough to try these activity kits for kids? All that you need is the right approach for this fun-based learning. These kits are worth try. You might love one subscription box (activity kit) over another and it is completely basis your experience. But the generic things remain the same, as

  • Don’t think that your task is complete, once a craft/activity is done. You’ll have to re-iterate the concepts learned with many practical experiences.
  • Many of these activities are re-playable. Keep on doing them more than once.
  • As a parent, you’ll have to guide your child, but forget the thought of putting 80% of your own efforts. Your child should put in 80% efforts and you should jump in between only for the rest 20%. Control your temptation!!
  • Leave the kids with their completed craft, you’ll wonder, how their imagination soars as they’ll bring across a new concept/story. Believe me, I’m always amazed at how much kids can think and weave around one craft.

Keep engaging kids by then!

  8. These are some helpful comparison for parents who love subscription boxes but are confused with so many options available. Like your point on controlling temptations to finish it. in our case its almost 50-50% but I am sure once he grows up, he will like to do it on his own

    I have an autistic son, 4 years old. I was wondering if subscription boxes are available in India for special needs kids. There is one in the US, ‘spectrum surprise’, especially for autistic kids and SPD. They do not ship to India. Any idea if you know any person or group that provides similar products for special needs children. Thank you.

    1. Jhilmil

      Hi Nadia, I’m not sure if they cater to the special needs kids. Though the activities which they have can help kids, may be you can try one of the boxes, and determine if it works for you. Hope that helps, thanks

      1. Nadia Momin

        Thanks for the reply and the suggestion.

  29. Nandini Lal

    Harsh soaps can strip the softness from your baby’s delicate skin and lead to dry and irritated skin. You should thus always watch out for chemically induced soaps and lotions. Instead, invest in organic and natural baby care products like those of Maaté. These products are made from the goodness of nature without any chemical intervention.

    Kids going to love it.
