Ivy Kids: Super Fun Educational Subscription Box, September #spon

**Complimentary products received in exchange for out honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

We recently had the chance to review the September Ivy Kids Subscription Box!


Ivy Kids was created by a mom who is also a certified early childhood educator.  After becoming a stay-at-home mom once her second child was born, she realized there was a market for quality educational materials for young children and she started creating these wonderful kits. 

Each month's kit is packed full of activities to support a literature choice.  The book is also included in the kit, which is super convenient!  September's Box was Color Zoo and included lots of colorful crafts, games and activities.  

Ivy Kids also offers sibling packs, which is basically just extra materials for a second child to learn the lessons along with the first child. They also personalize their kits with the child's name.

The inside flap of the box shows which activities are included and what the final products should look like.  The kiddos found this helpful while making their crafts:


Each activity is packaged separately and organized perfectly for ease of use.  There are step-by-step instructions for each project for both younger and older kids, plus conversation starters and comprehension questions for each activity.  These activities include lots of crafts, games and hands-on, exploratory science and math-related fun.  Many projects are laminated and can be used over and over again to reinforce the lesson. Here are all of the activities laid out for Color Zoo:





Here are a few of the kiddo's favorite activities from this month's box:

Animal Puppets- D's Birdhouse and A's Kitty:

As you can see from the pictures, the kiddos had a blast with this box and these are just a few of the many activities in this kit!

I loved so much about these great, educational boxes, but here are my favorite features:

-EVERYTHING you need is included!
-Boxes are stuffed with activities to encourage child-led exploration and learning
-Items are organized and personalized
-So many of these activities can be used over and over again, really adding value to the kit
-My kiddos absolutely loved these kits so much!  They had a blast learning with Ivy Kids!
