THiNK OUTSiDE- Take the curriculum outdoors!

THiNK OUTSiDE is such a fabulous educational subscription box for kids. I received a Water and Knot Box and I can’t wait to take the kids out with it and learn along with them.  All subscriptions start with their Intro box with foldable daypack before advancing to the monthly theme boxes.   Let’s take your curriculum outdoors!  With some of us having to homeschool this year due to the pandemic, teaching life skills through THiNK OUTSiDE(they ship to Canada and the USA) is definitely one of my favourite subscription boxes.  Their lesson plans are excellent.
