The more we get the Atlas Crate geography subscription box, the more I love them. The Germany box is no different. Actually, it’s almost like this box was made for this family of kids born in Germany, with a mom who has a website about books and a son who is obsessed with cars. But, I think books and cars are things most kids can get behind, so don’t worry if you don’t have a book website and your kids weren’t born there. Your family will still like it. With that in mind, I hope that if your family is looking to up their cultural learning, that you get this box to enhance your understanding of Germany for kids. Here’s my Atlas Crate Review for the Germany box.
Unboxing the Atlas Crate Germany Subscription
As I mentioned, I was excited to open this box. Watch the video below to see what I saw when I opened and read on to get more details.
What’s in the box?
I can’t explain how excited I was to see that a fairy tale craft was part of this box. We love fairy tales here. Plus Germany has the whole fairy tale route that I don’t think gets enough attention. So, yes, please! Share it with my kids. The activities include attaching stickers to some wood blocks to make dice and filling in the book in a “mad libs” kind of format.
Car & Launcher
I was extra excited to see this because I knew my son was going to immediately claim it. We spent some time last summer at the BMW Museum as part of our Europe car trip and this is right up his alley. Plus, what kid doesn’t like something that launches?
Germany information envelope
The information packet includes a map with the basic facts about Germany. There are travel journal entries from Milo and Anya, the Atlas Crate hosts. Info on the Neuschwanstein, Disney’s Cinderella castle inspiration. Details about Beethoven, German-born classical composer kids will surely learn about in school. Then a how-to for a Bavarian folk dance known as the Schuhplattler (shoe shopping) that kids will likely not learn about in school. And finally a recipe for one of Germany’s favorite treats – the pretzel.
Ja, ja, ja! Yes, yes, yes!
