This month’s box is my favorite box thus far. It focuses on people who are different from others. Its goal is to give kids the tools and skills to be able to deal with people who aren’t like them. It also focuses on how we can have empathy towards others who are different and how to be more kind. In our box we received the following:
We started off by reading a book called You be You about a little fish named Adri. When going out to explore the ocean Adri realizes there are all different types of fish. Big ones, small ones, short ones, tall ones. This makes Adri realize that the world he thought he knew was different. I don’t want to give away too much of the book but my girls liked it. It was very colorful and they enjoyed seeing all the different fishes.
Next, we opened up our magic mold. This was the kid’s favorite part! It felt like play dough. What we did was take it and added color to it by marking dots on it with our markers. Then we rolled up it until completely covered with color and attempted to make our own unique fish. It was neat; we then took turns wearing the blindfold. With the blindfold on we, each got a chance to smell and feel all the fish we made.
Next, we went through and did all of our challenges. First up was the braille challenge. We explained to the kids how braille is what people use to read who cannot see. People like Louis Braille, the inventor of braille. We let them feel all the dots on the card with their eyes closed.
The drawing challenge then came next. It was fun we learned about the paralyzed artist Joni Eareckson. Joni was a great artist who drew with her mouth. The kids tried drawing fishes using nothing but their mouths. They couldn’t stop giggling it was fun.
Very hungry after this we used our Jell-O pudding to make beach cups. We ate them while we talked about all the fun things we had just done and learned. We talked about how no matter how different we are we are all the same. We should all be kind to one another to make the world better. This box was so much fun! The theme was amazing! I totally look forward to more boxes like this!
