Your Outdoor Curriculum

THiNK OUTSiDE BOXES is a year-long outdoor curriculum delivered monthly, serving a wide-range of ages starting at 7. Our program is designed to promote exploration and survival in the great outdoors. Each monthly kit covers a new theme from outdoor shelters and night-time discovery to first aid and nutrition.

Our products and guided activities encourage adventure, promote empathy, and foster creativity, encouraging our children to become lifelong learners. Get started and build your own home library to enjoy for many years to come.

As a family, we strive to be outside more. These boxes have helped us to do just that! They have also added a nice addition to our homeschool curriculum. We love receiving our new box and digging in to learn more for our adventures. The products and included materials are great quality and very useful. We highly recommend THiNK OUTSiDE boxes for all families!

The Lesson Plan

Our educational and activity booklets tackle many aspects of learning:
STEM | Creativity | Critical and Strategic Thinking | Empathy | Outdoor Life Skills | Hands-on Activities

Our service follows a standard annual schedule that ensures learning is seasonally appropriate. Every month has a new theme covering everything from first aid and outdoor nutrition to nighttime discovery and building shelters. Your first box, the Intro box, sets the foundation for your year of learning, followed by the below 12 monthly themed boxes.

We have found this to be so much more than just a fun kids subscription box. It brings in so many connections for homeschooling: science, ADST (applied design, skills and technology), history/social studies, reading, building, exploring, hypothesizing, and so much more! This is the kind of box that I know I can count as school but is hands on and engaging and really requires very little of me. The boxes are new each month, the products are high quality and unique, and it is one of the great highlights of our homeschool month.”

What’s In Each Box

Over the course of a year, your young adventurer will receive outdoor essentials to build out their survival pack. To supplement your child’s learning with the 20+ page educational activity booklet, each box comes with 3 to 5 pieces of high-quality gear, resource cards, and challenges. Our boxes make learning exciting as you teach STEM-focused topics, such as water filtration, pulley systems, astronomy, and more!

We are 7 shipments into the total 13 (including the intro box) and we love it! So I have to confess though that I bought this for my 5 year old daughter (she was 4 when we signed up) even though it is rated for age 7+, she has done fantastic with every box though. We have had a ton of fun learning new skills outside, and putting those new skills to action on hikes or while camping. I love this box! I might even sign up to have the year of boxes all over again….”

We just got our first box and we love it! High quality, my kids had to test it out as soon as we got it. I love all of the outdoor and survival activities included, this will keep us entertained for awhile. I can’t wait to see what’s in the next box!

So cool!

My Aunt surprised me with this subscription and I love it! The pink backpack in the first box is really cool and light, and the activities are a lot of fun. I can’t wait to get the next box!

Awesome!

My 14 year old son loves his first box! He’s even asked to go hiking more now that he’s started building his hiking gear! An unbelievable alternative to sitting inside playing videos/watching screens all day!
