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!

Everything in the box!

The pin has an elaborate and detailed design.

The design of this page is a blown up simpler version of the pin.

I fix cars and I break stereotypes.

– Balqees Bani Hani

Like all the past magazines, the illustrations are simple and straightforward.

The simplicity of the illustration doesn’t prevent the message from shining.

Balqees knows how to stand up for what she wants and makes it happen. She also pays it forward and created opportunities and paved the way for other women to prosper in breaking stereotypes.

Stereotypes for women exists around the globe and it’s nice to know that even though it’s still a long way, we are making progress and slowly being open-minded about gender roles and speaking up about equality.

As early as now, kids should be aware of the traffic signs!

Try it out if you’ll pass the driving test!

These pages take us on a tour of the different mechanisms or phases of the car engine.

There a lot of little games you can enjoy like finding words and spot the difference.

The first experiment tackles oil and friction.

These are the materials needed, gloves, olive oil, and the car parts checklist.

We poured all the olive oil into the gloved hands of my daughter.

She rubbed them together as instructed and became slippery once all the oil has been evenly distributed.

It’s cool to have this fact sheet about cars and their parts. Kids will certainly learn a lot even though they’re not driving. At least they have an idea of what’s going on inside and how it works.

For the second experiment, we are going to engineer a moving car.

The materials they provided are tires, car parts, pulley, and rod.

We added a little action from the glitter glue to make a cool car.

Kids were done decorating the cars, they let them dry as they read the next part of the instructions.

They successfully built a car! It’s not complete without a street!

We have to take care of our cars and maintain them for a safe journey. They created a checklist for us to check every time before we drive.

The third experiment is about acceleration.

You can use your crate to create momentum and fully understand the concept of acceleration.

They gave us stickers, race track, popsicle sticks, and hook.

They put a string attached at the back part of the car.

She pulls the string and let it go releasing a force so that it can move on its own.

Sweet! She was able to make her own car and race too!

Truly, Balqees Bani Hani is an inspirational woman that kids should look up to. She didn’t give up and pursued her dreams. She rose up to the challenge and passed with flying colors. I hope the kids were able to learn a lot from her especially about the topic of breaking gender roles and stereotypes. This is the time that is impressionable for them and beneficial to instill values that will greatly benefit their outlook in life and how they see the world. We look forward to the next box!
