Naturally Curious and CreativeBy: Shanleigh Klassen
For those of you who may not know, each month we include a magazine in our monthly subscription boxes. In that magazine, we include interviews with our featured author and a member of our incredible community, but we have the most fun with the Creativity Corner where we include activities, fun facts, or games specified to our monthly theme.
With summer right around the corner, what better way is there to get excited for warm weather, and sunshine than by revisiting some of our favorite Creativity Corner activities inspired by the great outdoors?
Each activity is available as downloadable PDFs for your convenience. Have fun, and don’t forget that sunblock!

Why not become your own Keeper of Storms with this great science experiment, perfect for rainy days. (Get it??)

April 2020: Cabin in the Woods — Scavenger Hunt
Inspired by Earth Day, which takes place on April 22 each year and is dedicated to supporting the need for environmental protection, we thought the best way to enjoy the day would be to get out there and explore!
Our book for this box was Echo Mountain by Lauren Wolk, an incredible historical story that follows a family carve out a new life for themselves in the unforgiving, yet freeing natural world.
