Out of the Box Fun’s “Space Explorers Box”
Play, fun, and relaxation have an essential role in brain development. Research conducted on brain development emphasizes that if the fun is stopped, the learning will stop. It is found that fun and new experiences promote emotional strength and resilience.
When you get the Space Explorers Box, you will receive lots of fun and developmentally supportive activities inspired by EYFS and STEAM. All the boxes are curated by a Developmental Psychologist & Play Therapist, and two Mums.
Space Explorers, are you ready for an Adventure? Meet Astro, the little astronaut…
