We recently moved across the country. In the move, I thought it would be fun to pack a geography subscription kit box for the kids. It’ll be a few months until we move into our home and get our stuff from storage. But between the one I packed and the ones that will be continued to be shipped to us – I’m so happy we have it. Why? Here’s an Atlas Crate Review: Thailand Box.
Why I love the Atlas Crate Subscription for kids, pt. 2
As I mentioned, we moved. Moving during a global pandemic is not an ideal time to move and I do not recommend it unless it’s necessary. Yes, it was necessary.
Realizing we wouldn’t have access to some of the things people typically have access to when they move: shops, outdoor activities, and other items – I packed more toys than I probably normally would have.
The Atlas Crate box is an ideal box for long-term travel or times when you’ll be in a rented space without your own things because it comes with pretty much everything you need. The activities are just difficult enough to keep the kid’s attention for more than a minute, but fun enough that they want to complete them.

Atlas Crate Thailand: What’s in the box?
Just like other Atlas Crate boxes, this box includes two craft activities and an envelope of miscellaneous activities or information. Let’s look at what’s inside the envelope first:
- An introduction to Thailand with a map of popular places, and general info about the country.
- A travel journal entry from Anya and Milo, the hosts. This includes more info about Thailand and a small glossary of Thai words and pronunciation.
- Facts about the Floating Market and elephants.
- Instructions on how to make and play the Thai game, Len Choa.
- A recipe for Pad Thai.
The two craft activities were very cool. My daughter decided to make the shadow puppet theater (she’s in 7 and did the whole thing with little help) and my son is still working on the Krathong craft. Here’s a peek at the finished shadow puppet theater.
Last summer we brought a few kids with us during our summer in New York. This was, again, the perfect kit to take for our family. We’ve only completed one of the craft activities. My son is working on the second. I’m working on getting him to finish a multi-step project that isn’t fortnite. Then we’ll take a more in-depth look at the informational cards and games next week when we cook Pad Thai.
I am so excited.
