The card contains trivia about this month’s heroines!

Meanwhile, the pointers are all about celebrating FRIENDSHIP!

The Unstoppable Friends is the title of this month’s activity book.

Here’s a page that lists what’s inside the crate.

Helen Keller is an American author, political activist, and lecturer, and the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. Anne Sullivan, on the other hand, is an American teacher. A disease left her blind when she was five, but it didn’t stop her from being an educator. She is the lifelong companion who taught Helen to communicate.

When Helen was 7, her parents hired Anne to teach her. She opened a new world for the young girl as she helped develop her talent and make use of them!

The activity book offers a wide variety of activities that will get the kids busy. There’s a puzzle with words related to Helen and Anne’s story. The page beside it has the American sign language alphabet!

This page contains helpful information about certain disabilities, for the kids to understand about them more and for them to know that disability doesn’t mean inability!

Another page contains instructions for molding sand and how it utilizes the kids’ sense of touch!

There are optical illusions too, and an insight on how the brain works.

This is a very beautiful quote from our heroine, Helen Keller:

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

This month’s hands-on activities include the following: making a braille pencil case, exploring with a kaleidoscope, and exploring sound waves with sugar!

First up, braille pencil case making! Braille is a writing system used by people who are blind. This activity will familiarize the kids with the braille alphabet while enhancing their creative skills. Since it involves the use of scissors, the activity also requires adult supervision.

The materials needed for this activity is provided by the box, which includes a plain pencil case, stickers, spray bottle, red dye powder, beads, braille alphabet, and braille name template.

Here’s my daughter spraying paint on the pencil case.

She also had fun adding accents on it!

Lastly, she spelled out her name in braille using the beads. Nice job!

The second activity is about making a kaleidoscope. It will allow the kids to learn about light and what role it plays in producing kaleidoscope images.

The materials include a white tube, two clear circles, mirrors, eye hole cap, clear stickers, beads, white ring, and kaleidoscope cover.

She started by putting the beads inside the tube.

The kaleidoscope cover features Ms. Keller’s wonderful saying!

Can you see the beads from this end?

Here’s the view when we tried to look inside!

The last activity will teach the kids about sound waves using the dancing sugar!

To perform this activity, you’ll need a balloon, bowl, and a packet of sugar.

We used a pot and a wooden spoon to try out the setup.

It worked! This activity proves that we can actually see sounds too.

Girls Can! Crate is a fun and inspirational subscription, not just for young girls but for the whole family as well. This month, they featured two heroines with a true and lasting friendship. Because of them, we learned that dreamers who are persistent cannot be stopped, even with disabilities! The activities are well-thought out and enjoyable, my daughter loves them, even the on-page ones! Overall, Girls Can Crate is an inspirational and creative subscription that makes for a great family bonding experience. We always look forward to it!
