Subscription boxes are everywhere. And when it comes to our kids, it seems like there are a million options to choose from. So, what makes The Winkle Crate different from everyone else? We’ve created something really special, but don’t just take our word for it. Keep reading to see the top 4 reasons why The Winkle Crate stands out above the rest.
4 Projects in One Box
When a Winkle Crate arrives on your doorstep your kids aren’t getting access to just one project. There are FOUR completely different projects waiting inside! These projects cover the spectrum of STEAM learning and provide a wide variety of interests so your little ones won’t get bored or overwhelmed.
Let’s take a look inside our August Box and see what kind of projects you can expect from your Winkle Crate
Zoetrope- covers Engineering, art, and math
A zoetrope works similar to a flipbook: if you move many images through a single spot fast enough, it creates the illusion of a single, animated image. Unlike a flipbook, though, in which you flip through the pages quickly, a zoetrope rotates the images, which are viewed through a slit. The animation needs to be in a loop so it will look fluid or one continuous “story”.
Playground Project- covers math and engineering
Area and geometry was never this fun! Building your own playground while using key skills that will build on each other in later math classes
Optical Illusion Spinner- covers science
The human eye is comprised of two types of receptors: rods and cones. Cones allow us to see color and work well in bright light. Rods are used to see in low light. When a color wheel or optical illusion like the Benham disk spin the brain has to process the colors the eye perceives very quickly. In a spinning color wheel the images blend and we see colors we might not have expected.
Flashlight Constellations- covers Art, science
Open up their imagination to the world of space to learn about constellations and patterns.
Simple, DIY Projects
Winkle Crate projects are curated from our own imagination and popular ideas from around the world. Instead of having to run to the store to get the 50 pack of sticks (when you only need 3!) and storing a bunch of random never-to-be-used-again items, we make it easy and ship just what you need, while giving you the everyday materials to recreate it if your kids loved it so much. No more Pinterest fails and wasted supplies!
We believe in the power of individuality and our projects leave plenty of room for creative expression. Each project will look a little different from someone else and it’s a chance to let your child’s style and personality shine through.
Did we save the best for last? Maybe! Our Winkle Crate Kids get access to a full video library with step-by-step instructions on how to successfully complete their projects. Our subscription members get access to a Kid and Parent portal where they can ask questions, get, and learn more about each topic. Learn more about that portal HERE.
