What’s in a Box

What's inside a First Wonder Box?

Every box is on a different theme, but they’re all jam-packed with fun activities for children aged 4-8 to make, do and learn.

Each of our First Wonder Boxes has a different theme but they all come in a brilliant box that turns into an activity, craft or game.  Plus there’s an activity book that’s so full of fun kids don’t realise they’re learning, as well as all the crafting materials needed, stickers, collectable cards and a toy!

Take a look at what our Super Science box contains:

Learning through play

Created by the passionate team behind award-winning children’s newspaper, First News, First Wonder Box is designed to help children develop fine motor and problem solving skills.  Children learn through play by experimental learning; that is, by doing, asking questions, communicating and creating.  They will grow in confidence as they explore the human body, the natural world, history, animals, technology and science.

Children learn best when they are playing. When they’re free to explore, they will try out new things and test their abilities. First Wonder Boxes have been created to empower 4-8 year olds – sparking their creativity and helping them develop vital skills while learning about the world.

The perfect mix of learning and fun, First Wonder Boxes are a great way to keep kids entertained for hours. Packed with activities that support Early Years and Key Stage 1 learning, they’re educational toys with a difference.
