These kaleidoscope kids are my kids’ favorite part of boxes this month! They were THRILLED to see this activity included! Each of your kiddos gets to make their own kaleidoscope! It’s filled with colorful beads that can be swapped out too for new patterns and colors! Bonus! This doubles as a STEM activity, especially if you talk about color and reflection while making it!

Sidewalk chalk is a summertime staple…but I think we need to turn up the volume a bit. Let’s make sidewalk chalk PAINT! Everything you need to mix your paints and start painting is inside your Unwrapped box!

Probably my favorite part of Unwrapped boxes this month! The Summer Schedule Unwrapped! This schedule is meant to be a very low bar way to keep everyone entertained this summer.

My kids are the experts at interrupting me at all times. This schedule is my secret weapon. We can sit down with it together, identify the theme for the day of the week, pick an activity that we will do together that day, write the plan down and set the expectation for when and where it’ll happen.

Picture this. You have a full day of calls, but no camps for your kids this week. It’s Monday and you need a plan. You know you can’t entertain your kids all day long, but you also know if you don’t give them any sort of attention, they’ll turn on you. Lose lose.

Instead, use your Summer Schedule Unwrapped! Go to Make it Monday and pick something to make together. Build with Magnatiles, do a coloring sheet, bake cookies, etc. Finalize on the ONE thing you’re doing that day and write it down on your board. Oh, did I forget to mention this was laminated for daily use? It is! Your box comes with the laminated schedule AND a dry erase marker!
