Wonder Crate is a subscription that encourages kids to think big about the impact that they can have in the world by providing them tools to do it. Ideal for kids ages 7 to 11, each monthly mailer contains a book to inspire, stories of kids their own age, activities to empower, collectibles, and more. The first month’s box will include a metal carrying case. Monthly subscriptions start at $29.95.

Everything in the box!
Magnet. Every month, there’s a round magnet included in the box! This month, it features a woman’s silhouette which I believe is this month’s featured activist, Jane Goodall. There’s also a chimpanzee, with a greenery background.
Pocket Notebook. The pocket notebook is dedicated to birdwatching, as it’s one of the suggested activities for this month. The cute notebook features different kinds of bird printed on a red-colored notebook.
The notebook is used to record sightings, insights, and reveries of the birds.
The notebook even contains charts and other features to make recordings and jotting down observations easier for bird watchers.
The notebook has 48 pages to note bird counts and observations.
There’s a spread that features the different birds with their silhouettes. There’s a total of 24 kinds on this one!
Watercolor set and Paintbrush. The watercolor set comes handy in beautifying this month’s main project, which is a birdhouse!
Reusable Metal Straw. In line with their advocacy of saving the planet by minimizing the use of plastics, they sent us a reusable metal straw!
A life in the wild!
Jane Goodall, born in London, England, always loved animals and wanted to study them in their natural habitats. So at age twenty-six, off she went to Africa! Goodall’s up-close observations of chimpanzees changed what we know about them and paved the way for many female scientists who came after her. Now her story comes to life in this biography with black-and-white illustrations throughout.
The book introduces us and tells us about the world-famous scientist and animal rights champion, Jane Goodall.
The illustrated book is a nice read as it shows us how Jane made her dreams come true, and how she cared for the environment, especially the animals.
There are even features about chimps learning, and how a chimp named Washoe “creates” a word when she didn’t know the sign for something.
There’s also a side by side comparison of Jane Goodall’s life and the timeline of the world.
Activity: Build a Birdhouse. Here are the materials we need to make the birdhouse, complete with illustrated instructions.
My kids started to build the birdhouse using the cut-out wooden templates.
It’s easy as the parts are pre-made and they just need to attach them together.
They also used the watercolor decorate and add color to the birdhouse.
They filled the insides with ropes to serve as the bird’s nest.
This is really an amazing crate to learn and explore!
We love this month’s box! My kids had a good time making the birdhouse and learning about birdwatching! We also learned a lot from Jane Goodall, she’s a good role model especially when it comes to taking care of the environment and giving importance to other living things. The birdhouse will be placed outside our door so the birds from the outside can make use of it. We can also use it to observe and watch them. Also, we’re happy about the inclusion of the metal straw, it’s environment-friendly and safe to use. The box is really a great avenue to develop the kids’ skills while learning and empowering them to go for what they want, as long as it’s for the good of not only themselves but for everybody!
