Frequently asked questions
What ages are the forest boxes designed for?
The Forest Box for Kids is designed for ages 5-8 with the help from an adult. Ages 9-12 can successfully complete activities independently.
I live in a forest/mountain/urban area. Will the "forest" box still work for us?
Great question. Yes! Our boxes are appropriate for all bio-regions, and their themes and skills are universal to people all over the world. You may need to find a local farm, park or natural area to do some of the activities if you live in a more urban area, but the crafts and journals and the rest of the box will 'work' anywhere.
How challenging are the activities and crafts?
My child loves glitter? Do your boxes include glitter and shiny craft stuff?
Our boxes are not bright and shiny with lots of artificially made sparkly things. Most of our materials are nature-made and harvested from our own land or wild places nearby, and will be similar to what you would find if you were out in the wild. (We make sure they are clean and free of invasive species.)
