AND through the joy of play teaches kids about kindness, sharing, gratitude, diversity and why they are unique and can make a difference!
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.” –Dr. Seuss

What Moms Are Saying...
"My boys were so excited to get their Outside the Box! We sat down as a family to make bookmarks and necklaces. We talked about giving the necklace to one of our neighbors as a random act of kindness. Outside the Box is the Pinterest board I'll never make and the craft supplies I'll never buy. And it shows up on my doorstep!"
"I'm a working mom, it's not easy to come up with creative ideas that inspire all the time. This box is a game changer. Quality time with my child and a chance to get out in the community and do great things, perfect combination!"
"My goal is to raise kind adults and my biggest fear is that I am not. Outside the Box is a fun and automatic way to be sure we are scheduling in activities that encourage kindness and service to the community."
– Jill, Big Kid Small City
"Dear @cheekydays I love how easy you make teaching #loveherface to help kids in need, enjoy contributing to the world and express herself... I was SO wrong to pause our subscription after the next box... consider us permanently back in... each box better than the last!!! She cut her Birthday sign and wrote letters #allbyherself"
"I've often wondered how to make giving back and being thankful part of our family life, especially with our 4yr old son, so I was particularly excited to try the community activities in Outside The Box. My son and I got together to decorate and fill a 'care bag' to give to a homeless person, which was a really fun activity to share. When we were done he asked me who we could give the bag to, who were our homeless friends. I had to answer that we didn't have any friends without homes, which led into a very real conversation about how some people have more than other people and why that was. It was an amazing learning moment for both of us! "
"Verdict: I think Outside the Box is on to something really important here. This is the first box that I know of intended to teach children about community service and activism. The value in the box monetarily is over $79, but I feel the value of this box can’t be weighed by price alone. I feel the real value of this box is priceless in that it gave my family the chance to talk about homelessness, the importance of giving back to others, and tangible ways to actually do so. I’m so proud to be able to take part in their mission of supporting different charities and nonprofits and also having my children join me on this mission to help make the world a better place through caring actions"
