If you’re looking to make your at home religious education a little more hands on . . . have I got a box for you.

Actually, Frankie’s got it:

The folks at Buddy Box let us try one out.

Seriously. What is it about kids and mail? They go completely bonkers.

Each box has a theme to help kids connect with Jesus in a different way.

October was all about conquering fear. The box came with toys, games, activities, crafts, and music downloads all about the theme.

Frankie was NOT scared of this tiny rubber chicken. He LOVED this tiny rubber chicken.

The wind up teeth were for a little board game.

Not scared of flying.

Not scared of slime.

You can just let a group of siblings have at it, like I did, and with big kids around to read directions, it will keep them occupied for a whole weekend, playing with the toys and games and doing the little crafts and activities.

It could also easily be used in a more controlled environment, with a parent supervising the activities and talking to the kids about the theme for the whole month as part of home religious education – which EVERY parent should be doing. It’s not a Catholic program, and isn’t a substitute for learning the Catechism. But it’s a fun, hands on addition to more book-based learning.

And now we own a tiny rubber chicken.

Frankie likes chickens.
