I asked each of the boys what they wanted to learn about over the summer. This was what they came up with: rockets and astronauts, dinosaurs, ocean and I chose insects. I wasn't going to add something of my choosing, but because I have some fun insect activities, I thought summer would be the perfect time for that theme. We are going to take a couple of weeks on each theme and let them have fun!
To start we needed a box. I had originally been going to make them each an adventure box, but since we have such a small home I didn't want the additional clutter of two boxes. The boxes I found were pretty big. I used bankers boxes that I found at Walmart 2 for less than $5. They weren't very attractive so I spruced them up with scrapbook paper, stickers and modge podge that I had on hand. Here is our finished box.
