What is Movement in a Box?
Movement in a Box combines the ABC’s of movement with learning activities for children ages 3-6! Similarly to reading and writing, the ABC's of movement must be taught through a combination of practice, exploration, and free play. Our goal is to help inspire lifelong movers by providing screen-free and family-fun activities and by educating parents, teachers, and caregivers about the value of movement-based learning.
Movement + Learning
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 Movement in a Box combines fundamental movement skills, like jumping, skipping, throwing, and catching, with age-appropriate learning concepts like colors, letters, numbers, and shapes!

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.
