The Ideas & Activities Box was created for my own children in 2000 as a way to help build their self-esteem, encourage independent thinking, and grow their decision making skills. Offering child-led, play-based activities by choosing a coin/activity was the perfect way to begin each activity and ensure a child-led experience from start to finish.
My kids LOVED reaching in the box and pulling out an activity…It was a surprise every single time! I loved it because all of the activities and ideas were simple, required little to no prep-work, and used items that we had around the house.
We definitely have some really good memories attached to our Idea Box.
ACTIVITIES & IDEAS
There are 80 different, fun & easy activities, ideas, games & crafts for your child to choose from.
Inside the box, you will find 40, double-sided wooden “coins.” Each “coin” measures 1 ½ inches round. Each side of the “coin” has an activity on it.
The Idea Box is made of sturdy paper mache and takes up very little space at approx. 4 inches square and approx. 2 inches deep.
Here are just a few of the ideas & activities you will find in the box:
•Draw a picture with your eyes closed
•Indoor Scavenger Hunt: Make a list of items. Hunt!
•Look through photo albums
•Turn on music and dance
•Have a staring contest
The age range for the ideas & activities are ages 3-10, however, older kids would love to do some of these things, too! The best part is that the ideas and activities never get old...kids can do them over and over again.
