Though we live in a world obsessed with screens, 'Curiosity Boxes' is taking a chance with its no-screen, no-battery activity boxes for kids.

Curiosity Boxes are activity kits filled with hand-selected materials that encourage young children to create and innovate. Each box is full of materials you’d find in kindergartens or elementary school, such as popsicle sticks, colored paper, cellophane, straws and fuzzy balls.

Curiosity Boxes have been created with the idea that by nature, young children are curious about the world around them, so in order to foster that curiosity, these boxes come with just a few starter cards to kick-start imagination, but without instructions.

And if that wasn’t enough, Curiosity Boxes are dedicated to sustainability, with each box containing materials that create no waste but "lots of creating moments." Even the mailing box that the activity kits arrive in is able to be turned into a beautiful creation by children.

Shaz Lawrence founded Curiosity Boxes in early 2015 to lead the way in early learning. She has been a teacher for more than 25 years and has always enjoyed watching young learned build, discover and imagine wonderful creations of their own.
