But recently, we traveled to Italy and Australia!
Through Scotty’s Wanderquest Boxes!
What is Scotty’s Wanderquest Box?
Scotty’s Wanderquest Box is a country-themed activity box for kids in the age group of 6-12 years which aims at giving them complete exposure to the culture, ways, traditions, language, weather, history etc. of a particular country through the means of creatively designed activities.
What does the Scotty’s Wanderquest Box contain?
Here’s a glimpse of the activities in Italy’s and Australia’s Scotty’s Wanderquest Box that I received.
The Scotty’s Wanderquest Boxes contain a World Map, which is very colorful and detailed. It also comes with a dummy passport which looks very much like a real passport giving the child a feeling of possessing one. The boxes contain a Travel Booklet loaded with each and every small detail about the country like its food, languages spoken, sports played, famous personalities, inventions and the like. In addition to this, the box also has a bunch of activity sheets and craft DIYs.
What did I like about Scotty’s Wanderquest Box?
The activities included in the boxes indicate that even the minutest of details about the culture, flora, fauna, food, language, traditions etc. of the country have been considered in designing the activities. This ensures the child’s well-rounded exposure to any given country.
A couple of activities in the boxes also need parental assistance which gives parents also an opportunity to learn about new countries. In fact, carrying out an activity with your children also gives you a chance to spend some high-quality time with them.
This concept of country-themed boxes is a very unique one and is great for children of both types: the one who have visited many countries and even those who haven’t. For instance, if your child hasn’t visited Italy then it’s obvious why this box is a valuable addition. It will help your child learn new facts about a new country. On the other hand, even if your child has visited Italy, it’ll be like re-inforcing the experiences and facts that he assimilated in reality. Like, it would be fun to tell your child, “Pinocchio hails from Italy – the same country we visited last summer!” Isn’t it?
Activities like coloring sheets let your child use their creativity and imagination while learning.
Furthermore, the Scotty’s Wanderquest Box ensures that all the facts learned through the travel booklet get engrained in a fun way into the child’s mind by activities like crosswords and quizzes. This deepens your child’s general knowledge.
Scotty’s Wanderquest Box has some really interesting subscription options.
You can check them out here.
You can choose to buy a single box or opt for a 3-months or 6-months subscription.
Opting for multiple month subscriptions automatically makes you eligible for a treasure hunt that runs through the three or six boxes that you buy as a part of a subscription. This refreshes the previously learned facts and also gives a sense of continuity to the child.
Being Mumma’s Rating
You can go ahead and buy these boxes if your child lies in the age group of 6-12 years and is a geography or history lover or even if your child is a budding general knowledge giant. 6 years to 12 years is the most ideal age for a child to experience Scotty’s Wanderquest Box as it is just then that children start understanding, absorbing and developing on the idea of geography. Also, it is always an added advantage to know about countries other than one’s own or those we haven’t visited.
Each box comes with a DIY craft activity which is a very good token of that particular country and through these (eg.: Pinocchio puppet from Italy box or Coral Reef from Australia box) the kids get to associate a country with something definite and tangible.
So go ahead and subscribe to the Scotty’s Wanderquest Box today. You never know; you might find your next vacation destination through one of these boxes!
