Helpful Ways to Teach Life Lessons and Connect With Your Kids

As a stay at home mom, I find that I sometimes stress myself out looking for activities to do with my kiddos. Lately my 3 year old favorite statement is “why?” and I love that he is so interested in learning about how everything works and his desire to gain knowledge. I’ve been a Pinterest fanatic trying to find fun and age appropriate activities for him and it can get exhausting planning and time consuming creating activities for us to do.

Thankfully, I stumbled upon Koala-T-Time and they’ve taken all the work out of creating activities, saving me time and allowing us to spend more quality time together. Koala-T-Time is a monthly subscription box (different theme each month) that includes all the instruction, tools and products needed to complete fun and enriching activities with your kids.  The focus of the box is to spend quality time with your children while touching on important life lessons. There are weekly lessons that can be completed in 15 minutes and then another activity, the Special Koala-T-Time, that takes a bit longer. The boxes are recommended for children 5-8 years of age, but can often be taught to younger and older as well.

This months box was an ice cream themed box, which got us all excited because it included all the tools needed to create our own ice cream! The four learning points in this box were: respect, negotiation, balance and community. Each week you are to complete one of the pouches with your children and they include an easy to do activity that focuses on a learning point.

I loved having the weekly activities to look forward to. They were perfect for a quick activity with my son when his baby sister was sleeping. I could look over the direction quickly and have the activity ready to go in less than 5 minutes. None of them were too long which is great when you have little ones with a short attention span.

This is such a convenient and fun monthly box. It makes learning easy and enjoyable for everyone, while touching on some very important life lessons. It opens the door for communication with your kids and provides a dialogue to talk about subjects that may not be addressed otherwise. Many of the activities can be used more than once and it also inspired me to take initiative to do more activities like this in the future.

    My daughter would love this. I used to do a preschool learning box but there were almost too many activities…this one looks more her age and just enough for us.

    I LOVE the idea of these boxes. Rather than searching Pinterest, it shows up right at your doorstep. Brilliant. Thanks for sharing.

    This looks like such a fun subscription box! I love doing activities with my little one but sometimes it’s too much to go out and buy everything we need for a craft and then gather it all up. I love that the work is done for you and you can just enjoy your child.

    This is so cool! I always come up with such boring crafts compared to what they do at her daycare!
