My 8-year-old is not a difficult child but if I take her into a toy store, there’s not much that’s grabs her attention. It becomes difficult when someone calls and asks “what can we get her for Christmas or what is she into?” My answer usually sounds like this….bugs, nature, how things work, science, technology, building things, geography and reading – and that is when I hear the silence on the other end of the phone. So, no – you can’t go into the local department store and get her a gift she’ll love and my little one is quickly following in her footsteps.
One of the ads I feature on my blog is from Groovy Lab in a Box, this is the type of Christmas gift any kid would love.
Groovy Lab in a Box is a monthly subscription STEM in a box gift. Each month your little STEMists receive a brand new box filled with STEM related learning opportunities.
The box comes complete with everything you’ll need to complete the activity. If you need a paper clip – it’s in the box, scissors – it’s in box, popsicle stick – it’s in the box – even any necessary tools are included. Once you open the box, your ready to get going on your experiment. They take it a step further by offering a website that allows them to take that months activity to the next level.
They are currently offering “Groovy Holiday Bundles” and you can get your first box delivered to you in time just in time for Christmas. They offer non-recurring prepaid plans in 3-, 6- and 12-month packages that are billed at the time of order. The plans do not renew (but you ‘ll probably want to continue). Right now, each plan is bundled with a unique single box at 20% off!
I think this is an awesome choice for a Christmas gift. Giving your little STEMist a monthly box filled with the fun of learning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Both Popular Mechanics and Mothering Magazine have included Groovy Lab in a Box in their 2014 holiday gift guides!
