Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Busy Box?

Busy boxes (similar to busy bags) are boxes full of homemade educational play activities that will keep your toddler and preschooler engaged for hours! They are full of activities that can be pulled out when you need to occupy your little one.  Each activity also helps your toddler or preschooler learn new skills while they play

Who Makes the Boxes?

Little Learner Busy Boxes are made by me, Jaime, a former K-8 teacher who now homeschools my 3 kids.  I love being creative and thinking of fun ways for little ones to learn while playing! I also understand the importance of keeping little ones busy! I often need to find things for my 2 year old to do while I help the older kids with school! Busy boxes have been  a life saver!  

What is In the Boxes?

Each box will come with at least 5 learning activity kits. Each kit will have everything you need to use the activity.  These activities can be used again and again! You will also get at least 1 worksheet or craft that can only be used once. The 5 kits can be used in dozens of different ways! The ideas will be included on the insert in each box.

What Ages is this For?

The busy boxes are great for ages 2-4, but even younger and older kids will have fun with the learning activities and games!

**Note: Items in the boxes do contain many small items that are choking hazards to children under 3. Please monitor your children and use items at your own risk.

How Do We Use the Box?

Although the items in the box can be used for free discovery play, each activity also has a learning purpose.  I suggest first showing your child some ways to play with the kits then letting them play on their own (under a watchful eye - choking hazards).  You can also use the boxes for preparation for kindergarten! Each box has a theme and focus for learning. Spend time each day playing with your child while pointing out the learning topics (letter sounds, colors, numbers, etc) 

How Does the Subscription Work?

Easy, Peasy! Just choose from 1 month (renews automatically) or from a prepaid package bundle.  You can save by prepaying but just choose the plan that works best for you. Each month we will ship boxes between the 5th-8th of the month.  You will be billed for the next month's box on the 15 of the previous month. For example: On Jan. 15th you will be billed for the box that will ship on Feb. 5th. You can cancel anytime. 

How Do I Cancel or Pause My Subscription? 

Your subscription will automatically renew each month, but if you want to pause or cancel at anytime, simply go to www.cratejoy.com and sign into your account (upper right corner).  From there you can manage your subscriptions.
