Here’s another great geography subscription box review. As you know, Atlas Crate is definitely my favorite in the world of STEM meets, well, the world subscription boxes. This time we’re heading south of the equator to a country known for majestic wonders, adorable alpacas, and so much more. Atlas Crate attempts to cram as much info as they can into a little box. How does it go? Well, check out my Atlas Crate Review: Peru Box below.
The first thing you’ll notice is that there are three activities included in this month’s box. That’s because they have both an alpaca craft, and some cute accessories for that alpaca. I absolutely love that. The other activity is a game called Juego de Sapo, also known as “Toad in the hole”.
Let’s take a look at my unboxing before we get into more details of what’s in the box.
Atlas Crate Unboxing: Peru Box
Atlas Crate Peru: What’s in the box?
In addition to the three activities mentioned above, and the tools and directions to make them, Atlas Crate includes an envelope of Peru-specific information. The information provided is:
- Peru introduction with a map and basic facts.
- A travel journal entry from the guides, Anya and Milo. They talk about Lima, Machu Picchu, the Amazon, and the desert.
- Information about alpacas and alpaca wool.
- Details about Machu Picchu including its history and current status.
- Details about the oldest musical instrument in the Americas, the Antara. They also give instructions on how to make one at home using straws and a few other supplies.
- Information about the Nazca Desert and how to create a small scraped story using paint and more.
- A recipe for quinoa milk pudding.
Atlas Crate Peru Box Thoughts
This is another great one. I absolutely love the activities because the alpaca and the matching accessories are so adorable. The game is a fun game that is fun to add to our collection. The included information is varied enough to get an introduction to how dynamic Peru is. My favorite is that the activities included in the envelope or simple enough to do at home with the tools we already have.
Because of the activities, this is the perfect box for siblings. There’s only one alpaca, but one child can make it and the other can make the accessories. The game and the other crafts and recipes can be made per child. This is definitely one of my favorite boxes so far.
