As homeschoolers my kids are home and stuck inside all winter. Not a fun combination that often leads to entirely too much screen time. Sure they can enjoy plenty of educational games, apps, and TV shows but all of that time with the lights of a screen can aggravate my oldest ADHD. It gets bad. Really, really bad and I end up unable to keep things under control when they need to be. This year we are giving Suprise Ride a try.
The makers of Surprise Ride set out to give kids a screen-free fun educational experience.
And if you ask me the succeeded. Surprise ride offers crafts, STEM activities, Books, and a snack all in one box ready to kill some time on a boring afternoon. The really cool part is Surprise Ride is really a full hands-on screen free unit study delivered to your door all in one convenient box. Surprise Ride is designed for children 5 and up, I think 6 and up would be best due to the reading material and skill level for the projects.
When you order from Surprise Ride you give your child’s name. The box arrives addressed to them with a handwritten note. I blurred out Monkeys real name. I could clearly tell this was handwritten and that is an amazing personalization touch. This makes Suprise Ride a great gift idea for the child in your life.
While monkeys projects did not turn out as ascetically pleasing as intended they did challenge her. She had fun and learned a lot along the way with this subscription box just perfect for kids her age.
Each part of this box was centered around Leonardo da Vinci. The craft was a remake of the Monalisa.The STEM project was a wind-up model. Other small touches were added like this Parachute man. Monkey learned that da Vinci was a vegetarian as she got to enjoy the included veggie chips while reading a book about the man. This was so much fun. Give Surprise Ride a try with your little one today.
