My daughter loves to bake. Definitely checking out FoodStirs!

They have geek boxes for kids???!!!!!! EEK! I may have to buy this! For my daughter, of course. *cough* Anywho, you have given me some great ideas and something new to try for them soon. I don’t know which one I am going to start with! I had heard of the little travelers before, but that science kit looks perfect.
Yes isn’t that awesome lol? I am totally tempted to get the geek one too lol. I was actually surprised at seeing all the different options when I was researching. There is like a subscription box for everything now. Getting a monthly box is just super exciting no matter what age you are lol.
