I am so impressed with the great options for educational subscription boxes for kids these days. We have been lucky enough to review a few different ones here. Today I have another really cool one for you called Junior Explorers. (I received this Junior Explorers subscription box for free and have been compensated for my time in writing this review. All opinions are my own.)
Junior Explorers Subscription Box for Kids
Junior Explorers follows the pattern of delivering a box monthly to your house full of activities for kids. It is geared to kids ages 6-11. I used it with my 7 and 10 year olds. What I really like about this one is the educational value to it. Junior Explorers focuses on teaching kids science, nature and geography while also having fun. They go on adventures around the world learning about the animals and ecosystems there. They also have an online component that goes along with the box. They log on to the website and enter their mission number. This gives them access to the mission and activities for the month. My kids have always been very interested in nature and animals, so the Junior Explorers subscription box is a really great fit for them.
Junior Explorers Gives Back!
The other thing that is really special about Junior Explorers is that kids can give to real life causes through the game. Each mission that they complete gives them points. With those points, they can use them to give to real world conservation projects The Junior Explorers company converts their points into dollars and donates for them!! I really love this! It is teaching my kids to give and they are really giving to a good cause.
The subscription box we received this month was the Arctic Mission. It contained a whole lot of fun stuff!! There were a few collectibles including a pin, a wrist band, and some little toy animals. The box also included postcards to send to friends, stickers and tattoos of that animals they learn about, flashcards and a fact sheet as well as a little activity booklet. The kids got a letter telling them that they were needed to find a lost polar bear. On the website, they meet a biologist who found some polar bear cubs who had lost their mother. They then complete different tasks and activities that teach them about the Arctic as they search for the polar bear mother. On the mission they learned about the snowy owl, the lemming, the walrus, the arctic fox, and of course the polar bear. There are some fun little characters named Kia and Kyle that accompany them on the missions, too.
What is great about these educational subscription boxes is that you can use them in your homeschool to add fun and variety to your day. Both my kids really enjoyed completing this arctic mission and actually did it twice on the website! They have both been asking if we can get another one, so I am seriously considering signing up for this one. 🙂
