Thanks to Dreamkeepers Box for providing my family with a box to review! All opinions expressed here are my own.
Dreamkeepers Box: Career Day Meets Black History
I was so excited when I was contacted by the founders of Dreamkeepers Box to highlight them on the blog! STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) plays a large part in my homeschool curriculum, and this box is great for all kids no matter if you homeschool or send your children to the classroom to learn. Dreamkeepers Box is a monthly subscription box geared towards children ages 8-12. BabyCake is almost 7 and this box was great for her as well with a little help from her brothers and I. Each box focuses on a different STEAM career field, and highlights African American leaders through educational materials, and fun hands on learning activities. In my home, I never stop teaching Black History. We learn about black pioneers and leaders year round, so this is perfect!
The Dreamkeepers Box we received focused on leaders in the Aerospace field. Doing the projects included in our box even made us research even further to learn more about Aerospace engineers like Dr. Wanda Austin and astrophysicist Neil Tyson Degrasse. Each box comes with instructions and materials for two STEAM projects, 1-2 children’s books related to the theme of the box, an educational toy, and collectors cards.
The Dreamkeepers Box features five characters that your kids can relate to, to help guide them through each project. We had fun learning about the Solar System with Simone whose focus is Science, and learning about Racing Rockets with Elijah whose focus is Engineering. Representation is so important for my children, so I love seeing these images. In other boxes you’ll see projects with Tre who focuses on Technology, Amari who is all about the Arts, and Maya who is all about Math.
As an unschooling family, hands on projects are one of our favorite ways to learn.
I really loved that each project had so many layers. So instead of learning one thing about the Solar System, we were able to explore many different topics like moon phases, solar eclipse, and constellations.
Our Dreamkeepers Box introduced my children to many different black leaders who lead in the field of Aerospace with informative trading cards.
Completing each project was so much fun!
