As parents, we really want our kids to see themselves as citizens of our global community: to develop an appreciation for other cultures, and to grow their understanding of – and empathy for – communities and customs beyond their own experience. But it can certainly be a challenge to help our kids gain that perspective – especially since their lifetime orbits generally extend not much further than 5 miles from home!
This was the personal need that prompted us to design and develop the newest product line from KiwiCo for ages 6-11 — and today we are thrilled to announce the launch of Atlas Crate! We designed Atlas Crate to spark kids’ sense of adventure and curiosity, and to inspire them to see themselves as citizens of the world.
Every Atlas Crate will provide kids with immersive, hands-on experiences that connect them creatively and intellectually with lands and people that may be unfamiliar to them, focusing on a new country every month. Every crate includes:
- Globally-inspired hands-on projects and activities that explore new cultures
- High-quality materials and kid-friendly instructions
- Eye-opening, kid-friendly content that encourages a greater understanding & appreciation for world cultures
These crates are designed to help your child develop an appreciation for other cultures, growing their understanding of communities and customs beyond their own experience. We also want to cultivate their sense of adventure, curiosity, and love of exploration … and as with everything we produce, we want them to have an awesome time doing it. 🙂
