I loved opening the Imaginative University subscription box to find all sorts of activities and two full sized books right in the box! The activities were labeled ages 4-5 and ages 6-10 which is perfect for my crew. I will also share how we adapted this box to include our toddler Lil’ Red.
Who is Imaginative University? Here’s what they have to say:
Imaginative “U” kits vary from month to month. Some months focus on arts and crafts while other months focus on investigations, stories, or challenges. Some kits will include a book that goes along with the month’s activities while others will simply be loaded with items needed to complete the projects. No matter the contents, every month’s activities are centered around fun and creativity!
What’s in a typical Imaginative University Box:
The contents of the kits vary from month to month and are determined by the activities that are planned for each topic. Everything needed to conduct the activities is included and the supplies are color-coded so parents know which items go with each instruction sheet.
The theme that we received was SNOW! We actually were given two books: Snowflake Bentley and The Snowy Day. Both very good books which we didn’t happen to already own-SCORE! Our Snow kits also included activities marked by age and color to correspond to the instruction sheets that were also included. This was very helpful in organizing activities by age or the amount of mess it would make, lol.
We completed the messiest project which was the Snow combining shaving cream and baking soda. Since Lil’ Red wanted to participate we made his tray filled with whip cream so he could eat his snow creation!
What We like about Imaginative University:
Eldest- “It was a lot more interesting than I expected it to be. I look forward to the rest of the projects in our Snow box.”
Princess-“It was fun getting to make a snowman.”
Big Red- “It was so fun! It was so fun I want to play on it tomorrow.”
What age is Imaginative University geared for:
Our kits are divided by age so that children ages 4 and 5 receive a slightly different kit than those ages 6 -10 Some of the activities in each months’ kits are similar between the age groups but have different components and instructions.
