Blue Moon Box to Encourage Out-of-the-Box Thinking for Children
Here is a cool gift for the holiday or just to spoil your little one with fun and creativity. Invented by twenty-year-old Sara Sakowitz during her Freshman year of college, Blue Moon Box encourages kids to become the scientists and engineers of the future. Sakowitz, who was recently named to Crains New York’s 20 Under 20 List, believes that hands-on science learning is the best way for children to engage with science at an early age.
But, what is Blue Moon Box? This is simply a subscription base box that comes to your home and bring hands-on science fun straight to your doorstep. Depending on your plan, subscribers receive a new science experiment every month by mail. Boxes contain from Storybook/lab notebook for your child to write and draw their observations, to a few science experiments all with instructions and guidelines needed to support your child. In other words, ALL the materials you’ll need to complete each experiment!
How old does your child has to be to play with the Blue Moon Boxes? Well, according to the site, it will work best for kids ages 6-11, but I think that if you’re present and your children are the kind that behaves you should be able to buy it and do it for them until they turn 6. Don’t you think?
Blue Moon sets include a wide variety of experiments from the water cycle, rocketry and the stars, among others.
