Movement + Learning
What is a gallop? Are jumping and hopping the same thing?
Should my 4 year old know how to catch a ball?
How is math related to movement?
Why are gross motor skills important?
Parents have a lot of questions about their children's development, so we're here to help! We know that children learn best when they are active. Their brains make stronger and longer lasting connections when all of their senses are engaged. That's why all of our activities combine fundamental movement skills with age-appropriate learning concepts!
Convenient. Fun. Educational.
Activities are screen-free, age-appropriate, evidence-based, and designed by physical literacy exports for children ages 3-6.
Just like reading and writing, the ABC's of movement must be taught through a combination of practice, exploration, and free play.
Designed by Educators, Athletes, & Moms
Learning through play was a critical part of our childhoods. Through Movement in a Box, we hope every child can feel the pride of learning a new skill for the first time, gain the confidence to try new things, and develop a lifelong love for movement. We want to celebrate the moments when your child accomplishes something new, raises both arms over their head and proudly says, "I did it!"

I can't believe how long this held his attention. Normally he plays with something for 30 seconds and then throws it everywhere. It's fun because you start doing one of the activities and then you can spin it into so many different things. And you don't have a million toys laying around.

Thinking about how movements are the building blocks to so many other skills really highlighted the importance of practicing those skills with your kids!

My kids LOVED it. It was fun that they wanted to keep doing each activity and that it was their idea instead of mine.
