Peekapak offered to send me a complimentary box for my family to try out. This is what our box looked like when we first opened it up.
The first project was to make storytelling puppets to use while reading the story. We'll keep these to use with future boxes, too.
We sat down at our art/homework table in the corner of our kitchen and got to work. I cut the shapes out and Audrey taped them to the popsicle sticks. The tape that came in our Peekapak wasn't that sticky, so I swapped it for some Scotch tape in our junk drawer.
The story was about tangrams. A wooden set with a page with patterns came in our box.
As we read the story, we got to make the same tangrams as the characters.
Audrey used the retelling sticks to act out the story.
These are the supplies to make a kaleidoscope.
She had a lot of fun decorating her kaleidoscope and looking through it!
This is what we needed to make a parachute drop. The pattern on the cup is so cute!
All the activities in the box were great for a couple of afternoon projects. And the best part was that they all can be used more than once. Even after a few months, she still plays with the tangrams and the kaleidoscope!
