Secretly Educational Benefits
Open-ended activities give your child the perfect opportunity to lead themselves wherever they need to go developmentally. The activities that you will find in your Idea Box can be as long or as short as you want. They are completely flexible. You can start with one of the simple ideas in the box, and then expand on it if you choose. When you let your child lead, they will let you know exactly what needs to happen.
Idea Boxes are meant to be as child-directed as possible. This means that your child will be making a lot of choices. When you give your child choices you are providing an opportunity to build their self-esteem and help grow their decision making skills. Choices also provide an opportunity for them to listen, ask questions, and follow simple directions. These are extremely valuable tools that they will keep with them and use throughout their life.
SIMPLE FOR YOU
Activities and ideas are simple, require little to no prep-work, and use items that you have around the house. If you do not have a specific item, you can substitute something in its place. If an activity is too hard, you can easily adapt it to fit your child. Find a way that works best for you and your child(ren) and have fun!
Idea Boxes are perfect for ages 3-10'ish.
Our Idea Boxes have been tested by a CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) approved lab (Intertek), and are in complete compliance with all of the CPSIA regulations. We take the safety of your children seriously!
