Girls Can Crate is a monthly subscription for children between 5 and 10 years of age that promotes the idea that girls can do whatever they set their minds to. Each month features a different female pioneer whose story inspires girls to achieve. Each box includes a 20-page activity book that includes the heroine’s story, 2-3 STEAM activities, and creative play props. Boxes cost $29.95 each month with themes that celebrate female pioneers from diverse backgrounds, but the activities themselves are usually gender neutral.
This month celebrated the life of Patsy Mink.

Everything in the box!
There’s also a pamphlet that lists what’s inside the crate.
Meanwhile, these are pointers for parents on how to help kids grow as champions for equality!
The pin has an elaborate and detailed design.
The design of this page is a blown up simpler version of the pin.
Patsy Mink tells not to just go with the flow and it’s okay to pave the way and be the first one to make the stand no matter how uncomfortable as long as you fight for the greater good.
Patsy started to be the icon she is when she was little. She became the student body president because she wasn’t afraid of making a difference and she did not worry about what others would think about her and stood up for what was right.
She literally started a revolution and sparked the hearts of women that they deserved their voices to be heard. She knew what change was needed and how to achieve it.
She made history and helped the future generations of women with Title IX. She really did what she wanted to do and succeeded. She’s an excellent woman to look up to.
My daughter highlights the words after finding them one by one.
There are a lot of interesting fast facts and little games to entertain the readers.
There are hurdle and track and field activities in the booklet! Cool! They incorporate the real-life sports and made activities for the booklet.
I love that there’s a portion for Q& A with the kids of what they think about equality and stereotypes of men and women or what they can and can’t do.
We are going to do a home version of the game shotput. It involves a lot of skill and trajectory to make the ball go further and we should be able to test every possible situation to know for sure what factors make a difference.
These are the things needed for the experiment. The bag, 4 place card, a scorecard, and the pen.
She wrote on the card markers their placement and lined them up to see how far she can throw the bag. She picked up the pace and threw the ball with momentum and from the bottom going up.
Looks like she’s winning!
We are making our very own medal. We are all champions in our own way indeed!
These are the provided materials for making the medal.
This is her first time to bake a clay! Do you want to find out how she designed it? See the finished medal below!
This is the last activity! We have to color it first and then make this a slap bracelet.
We inserted the slap bracelet in the spine sticker and voila!
Sooo much fun!
I gave her the deserved medal after completing all the activities in the booklet and reminded her of the new lessons we discussed. She also put on her pin and bracelet and wore them the rest of the day!
The subscription picked a perfect person for girls to emulate and for boys to respect and look up to. Patsy Mink is truly an icon and inspiration for everyone. She is tenacious and stands up for herself even if the society and the gender stereotypes made it seem impossible. She sparked a lot of courage for women and had a domino effect. Generations after, we still benefit from the revolutionary things she did. The activities are all fun, cohesive and connected to the theme. The booklet is very helpful for the parents also and the message and the purpose of the box are spot-on!
