Surprise Ride is a monthly subscription box geared for kids five and up. It is meant to be used as part of a homeschooling unit or can be used to supplement your child's education at home. My six year old really enjoyed opening the box and trying the activities and materials. You can try it free here just like we did.
The subscription is $24 month to month and if you get 6 or 12 months you save. Each month you receive a different themed box which has directions, two activities, a book, snack and some fun extras. This month’s theme was Birdsville. One activity was decorating a birdhouse all the supplies were included even a disposable apron; my six year old thought this was a great Sunday afternoon activity. The second activity was making seed balls which we did has a family activity. The kids loved getting their hands dirty by rolling the soil/clay mix into ball then sticking seed in/on them. We will put the seed balls outside after they dry and the kids are looking forward to them growing into wildflowers in the spring. Snack was a seed and dried fruit mix which was enjoyed. The book Blacky the Crow was a little old for my six year old to enjoy. A bird glider and whistle were the extra; I could have done without the whistle as it is very loud. My box came with a hand written thanks for ordering note and lots of interesting facts about birds. My kids enjoyed the box for an afternoon of fun and if I was homeschooling I could definitely see using the box each month as a starting point for a unit of study.
