The little guy and I get to experience box day each and every month and it’s definitely something that we both look forward to. There are so many awesome things that come with our preschool curriculum kit and of course it’s no wonder than we’re both head over heels in love with all of it.
So much to do in every little yellow school bus box. And you know what? It’s become a huge part of our everyday lives.

When we got our December box from Mother Goose Time, I thought it’d be fun to let the little guy do the unboxing. Usually we do it together, but I wanted to get a few pictures. Needless to say, we had a blast.
The first thing that’s in each our boxes is Experience God. We get a teacher pack and two student packs every month. I like having the option of either doing the activities with him or inviting a friend to join us.
We also get a bag that includes each of our Teacher Guides. This year, they’ve changed from having one Teacher Guide for the month to having one for each week and it’s so much easier that way.
We get a special occasion bag every month. This month, it’s Santa’s Workshop, which is of course all about Christmas. There are usually crafts, activities, and even recipes in the special occasion bags.
I definitely love watching the little guy explore all of the fun stuff that we get each month. It’s all kinds of magical to see his eyes light up when he sees his favorite things.
And the manipulatives. They’re definitely one of his favorites. We’ve been collecting them since we started using this curriculum last year. We’re not even going to get into how many sets we have. You figure, 2 sets each month for 20+ months. Yep!
This month, we got these fun cube blocks. I’ve never seen these before. The little guy was all about stacking them as soon as we opened them. He built his tower and then it came crashing down, so he built it again.
On the agenda for January is Dinosaur Dig. I’m so excited for this theme. Dinosaurs were definitely one of my favorite things to learn about when I was a kid, so… I’m interested to see if he’s into them too.
Every month, we get a storybook. These books are nothing less than amazing. This one is Penry’s Great Adventure. And then there are a few other suggestions for books that we can add to the curriculum which I usually get from Amazon.
My favorite this year are these magnetic storytelling pieces. I’m obviously loving them and hoping to keep adding to our collection. Last year, we got wooden shape stamps and those were great too. We still have every single one of them. And these magnetic storytelling pieces are definitely just as much fun.
And of course there are also puzzles to go with each of the storybooks. These are great for encouraging problem-solving skills and the little guy and I get lots of use from them.
