Are you and your kids always on the go? Do you wish you had the time to do more hands-on activities with your kids but you just can't seem to find the time to research and plan it all out? Are your kids about to be at home for the summer with nothing to do? If you're nodding your head yes to any of these questions, I have good news for you.

Our Goodie Boxes are recommended for ages 3-8 years of age. Parental supervision is highly recommended due to the fact that our products may contain small parts that could become a choking hazard. As always, we encourage you to get involved in hands-on play right alongside your child.
Additional items may be needed to complete some of our activities. These items are usually items that you either have in your kitchen, or you can purchase at any local superstore. Additional items needed include washable paint, crayons, a muffin tin, baking soda, vinegar, glue, food coloring, coffee grounds or cocoa powder, flour, cooking oil, cream of tartar powder, and paper. (Items in italics are not needed if you add a batch of ready-made play dough to your order.)
For an additional $10 you can add 8 ounces of chocolate "dirt" play dough, small rocks, and blue pebbles to create an irresistible invitation to play with play dough.
You wouldn't bee-lieve how much fun your kiddos will have letting their imaginations run wild when you combine Insects and dirt colored play dough.
If you would like to add play dough to your order select yes from the drop-down menu.
Note: There is a recipe for dirt play dough included in your activity book, but if you'd rather have a batch of ready-made homemade play dough without having to make it we've got you covered!
Our homemade play dough is non-toxic and lasts up to six months if stored in the container we provide, or any other airtight container.
Shipping is a flat $5 rate to anywhere in the United States for each Goodie Box that you order. Please allow 24-48 hours of processing time since our products are homemade. Thank you for your interest in our Goodie Boxes, we can't wait to share all the fun with you and your little ones!
