Subscription Boxes – A Great Enrichment Tool

Ivy Kids Kit Review

We are a heading into the second half of the first year where I truly felt like I got this “homeschooling” thing down.  I’ve found a good rhythm to our days and weeks.  We have been able to spend time with friends. enjoy nature and go on trips.  With all this though, I was still wanting some kind of monthly surprise fun for the kids.  My daughter thoroughly enjoys our Christmas season because she gets to pull activities out of a hat to do that day.  I had thought to just keep the activity jar as a year round enrichment, but I knew if we did it all year-round then it would loose its spark come Christmas time again. 



So, I went on a mission to look for a monthly subscription box.  My go-to site for subscription boxes is  I’ve used them to find jerky subscriptions, book subscriptions and one-time unique gift subscriptions.  Nothing on this site though was catching my eye.  I knew I wanted hands-on learning.  I also knew that it had to be a kit that would work for both my 6 year old and 9 year old.   


I stumbled across Ivy Kids Kits through a Google search.  It seemed to hit all my “wants”.  I usually like to research as much as I can about a product before putting down my money, but I couldn’t find any videos or reviews.  I felt like I saw enough on their site, so I was hopeful that it wouldn’t be a “too good to be true” scenario.  I took the plunge and activated a three-month subscription.   


Since then, we have received three boxes. I have been extremely pleased with this subscription! What I love the most about them is that it is themed and you get manipulatives that can be used over and over for other lessons.  


And, since I couldn’t find any videos on the kits, I decided to go way out of my comfort zone and create my very first unboxing video.  I’ll get the hang of it one day, but I figured it was enough for others to see that the company is legit and the box is a great deal.  


So, go check them out for yourself.  Stay tuned for my next post where I show you the contents of the other boxes.  They are amazing!
