This month Girls Can! Crate celebrates the “problem solving environmentalist”, Wangari Maathai. This card shows what is included in the box and gives ideas to parents for continuing the learning with their child(ren) after the box activities are completed. The “Take it further” section for parents is one of my favorite aspect of this subscription. They always give great suggestions!
Wangari Maathai was the first African woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize. Not only did she contribute positively to her country with her Green Belt Movement but she also help women and the earth. She is a great example for girls!
The 20 page activity book included in each box is amazing! Girls Can! Crate contains three great activities plus this book which is full of tons of other things to do with your child. Girls Can! Crate is one of the best subscription values I’ve seen for kid’s activities!
This was one of the activities from the booklet. We talked about the different clothes worn in Africa and how to pronounce “kitenge” and then Cira used the stickers to dress the woman.
Next Cira used the supplies to plant sunflower and marigold seeds. You can see the marigolds starting to grow in the photos above. How long does it take for sunflowers to germinate? We’re hoping it will rear its pretty head by next week. Cira loves to come home from school and check her plants! This is a great activity.
This activity is about upcycling (reusing) items to make them into something else. We’re big proponents of recycling so this activity was a good chance for us to talk about the Reduce-Reuse-Recycle concept. Thankfully, this concept is well supported in our school system.
Verdict: We love Girls Can! Crate! It is extremely well thought out and worth every penny you’d spend on it. There is so much to do and learn from this box! Girls Can! Crate has a worthwhile mission along with incredible execution, value, and design. This box has a bit of everything I look for when spending money on activities for my child – fun, education, empowerment, interest, longevity, and quality. Plus, they donate 10% of the proceeds from each crate to organizations such as Girls Education and Mentoring Services (GEMS), Days for Girls, and SheHeroes. This subscription is a winner!
