I love subscription boxes. In fact, I think I’m going to do a separate post that lists my favorite children’s subscription boxes. They’re so fun, and who doesn’t love getting surprises in the mail?
On that note: today I’m sharing one of the best subscription boxes out there for preschool and young elementary school aged children. The M is for Monster monthly boxes bring you activities each month that are both fun and educational so that you and your little one can learn and play together.
Spending quality time with our kids is so important. Especially in their younger years when they are learning so much. But sometimes it can be hard to come up with activities that are entertaining and educational. I know that for me personally, my best attempts usually fall flat (except for one super cute snowman craft that was a huge hit with my toddler). I try to put together a fun activity for him but I either try something a little too ambitious or he does it so quickly that it’s pretty much over before it starts.
That’s why M is for Monster’s preschool boxes are so cool! These are monthly subscription boxes that contain four themes for you and your child to use as learning tools. You’re able to choose what level your child is at from 3 levels, and they will curate a box based off of that. They’re completely organized with not only activities and instructions, but they come entirely put together with all of the pieces for each activity. For example…
These are all four of our themes opened and spread out across the table. As you can see there is a TON of stuff (juice-filled sippy cup and Paw Patrol underwear clad toddler not included). Our M is for Monster box came with the supplies we needed for each activity down to the glue stick and crayons! When I say it was all put together I mean it was all put together. And because I wasn’t scrambling for supplies I had a lot more time to connect with Easton and teach him! Here’s one we did in about 15 minutes:

Now if you need a little more convincing, take a look a little bit of a closer look at what was in each of our theme envelopes:
And if a monthly subscription box with four themes feels like just a little too much for you, you can pick up the Mini Monster box which includes 2 themes instead of 4!
I’m really glad I got to try out the M is for Monster box. Easton and I have had so much fun learning together with it! Whether you just need a few themed activities to kill a little time each week or you’re actively pursuing a pre-school like curriculum that you can do from home, I think these would be an excellent option. I definitely plan to use M is for Monster again for their activities, and I’d recommend the service to anyone with a pre-schooler.
