The Preschool Box is a monthly subscription for three to four years old children that teaches basic math, phonics and writing skills to prepare them for elementary school. Boxes cost $29.95 each month plus an additional $3.95 for shipping. The box contains learning activities, games, stickers, and a book, plus some bonus items.

The subscription is as easy as read, enjoy, and share!

The contents are wrapped in a tissue paper…

There are lots of stuff inside the box!

There’s also a letter from the box’s founder.

They also included a guidebook which includes some instruction guide for the parents!

It tells us about what’s inside the box and instructions for each activity.

Every week, there are different activities to do!

Everything in our Preschool Box! Boxes start with A and go in sequence.

Bonus Sticker. We got a sticker sheet filled with minions from Despicable Me! My 3 year old was totally excited!

He did this artwork with his stickers!

Cooking with the Cat Reading Book. The book included is Cooking with the Cat by Bonnie Worth.

Look! Look! The Cat wants to cook!

Told with simple rhymes and rhythms, this jaunty illustrated tale gives very young readers a taste of the Cat in the Hat’s flamboyant cooking skills as he slaps on a Chef’s hat and whips up purple cupcakes using some truly odd ingredients! A cat-terrific spin-off based on Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat movie.

It’s an easy-to-read book and my kids enjoyed reading it aloud.

Christopher Moroney’s illustrations are really child-friendly and colorful, plus the text are large enough that the kids won’t have a hard time reading them.

My daughter loves reading and this book, even though it’s intended for younger kids, is still enjoyable for her as she reads it to her younger siblings.

Week 1. There are so many activities to get the kids busy! I wonder what we’ll do first… There are also flash cards for each letter (for this box we got A-D). The instructions suggest a scavenger hunt!

To start off with the week 1 activities, my son grabbed the tracing sheet and started tracing the letter A.

He also tried coloring the images that start with letter A at the bottom half of the sheet.

There’s a sorting mat where we sorted red and blue stuff!

Next up is creating the velcro cards. In this activity, you’ll need the number cards and the velcro dots. We matched the dots to the numbers and played a game closiing our eyes and counting without looking. Totally unique activity!

After the velcro cards, he started with the A for Alligator craft by pasting the green paper cutouts and googly eyes on the letter A sheet.

To finish off the “A-Alligator” he also pasted the white triangle cutouts to serve as the animal’s teeth!

Week 2. For week 2, we’ll be focusing on letter B, which included the tracing sheet and flash cards again.

For this week, my son tried sorting yellow and green items on the sorting mat.

Then he started the B Bean craft by gluing the beans on the letter B sheet.

B is for Beans!

Using the cups, the kids need to put the right amount of pompom balls on each numbered cups.

Week 3. For week 3, we have the letter C! Flash cards and the tracing sheet are included weekly.

For this week we have to sort stuff in four colors, blue, green, yellow, and red!

Then we also tried counting using the gumball sequins by gluing the correct number of sequins on the gumball machine.

We also tried making the C sheet craft by tearing off some brown construction paper, gluing them on the letter, and placing some black dots to make it look like a chocolate chip cookie!

Using the play dough, the kids also tried forming some numbers and some balls to go with each number.

My older son helped with numbers 1-3. Next time we’ll try to do it up to 10! A fun, tactile activity.

Week 4. For week 4 activities, our main star is the letter D!

Like the first 3 weeks, there’s also tracing sheet, flash cards, and a watercolor palette!

Using some cotton swabs and the watercolor palette, my preschooler tried to color the D sheet with colorful dots.

The end product actually looks artistic and amazing! Such creative hands!

Here are the letter sheets that the kids accomplished. My favorite is the letter C, it really looks like a yummy choco chip cookie!

The Preschool Box is really a great box for kids to learn reading, writing, counting, and other basic skills that they need to learn before moving up to the next school level. The weekly activities are well thought of and aside from basic learning, it also practices the kids’ creative skills. I noticed there was a lot of practice with fine motor skills, which was absolutely fantastic. And as a mom, I love seeing my kids complete the totally adorable letter activities. We ooh and ahh a lot over those sweet crafts! The bonus items are cool too, and the book is so cute and easy to read that my son actually read it every chance he got. We are looking forward to the rest of the letters and excited for the other activities that are coming our way!
