Trying to replace the educational experience your children get at school can seem nearly impossible at home, especially when you’re juggling your own work. These educational subscription boxes are a great way to supplement your child’s learning while keeping them independently entertained.
If you feel like you’re constantly encouraging your child to get off the computer, phone, or tablet, try repositioning screen time as learning time with Bitsbox. This monthly STEM subscription box teaches kids age 6 to 12 how to code, from learning the basics to inventing their own apps.
2) Little Passports
You might not be able to leave the house, but you can still help your child explore the world. Little Passports is a subscription box for kids ages 6 to 10 that contains a wall-sized world map and blue suitcase in the first package. From there, your child’s new “pen pals” will send letters from different countries in the world with fun culture facts, projects, and activities.
3) Highlights Puzzle Club
You can’t go wrong with a fun educational classic like Highlights. Their Puzzle Club subscription contains two age-appropriate books for ages 4 to 7 or ages 7+. The brain-building activities inside exercise many of the same skills kids use in school.
4) MEL Chemistry
Encourage science skills for 10+ kids with this science experiment subscription box. MEL Chemistry’s box contains 2-3 safe and exciting experiments in each subscription with all ingredients and instructions provided. You kids can work along to virtual lessons on the free VR headset included with the box.
