"History Unboxed is a perfect complement to our family’s history curriculum. My children are 8, 6, and 4-years-old and all three enjoy these boxes. To be honest, I have a blast with them too! From learning to fly boomerangs to making cuneiform cookies to gorgeous kites from China to henna art... these boxes have something for everyone. Better yet, they provide a hands-on learning experience that your family will not soon forget! We love History Unboxed!" -- Caitlin C, History Unboxed Customer
Who is it for?
History Unboxed is perfect for any family that wants to get kids more involved in studying history. There are three different options: one geared at ages 5-9, another for ages 10-15, and a third for older teens (16+) and adults who want a monthly history fix as well.
What is included?
Welcome Box + one month of History Unboxed! The adventure begins when you sign up for your subscription! The next month your child will receive a welcome box from our time travelling brother and sister duo Zane and Ava.
Note: Subscriptions auto-renew until they are cancelled. Discounted price applies to the first billing cycle only. Don't care for a welcome box? No problem. Skipping our welcome box and starting immediately with history boxes is also an option (selection available at website check out)
The welcome box includes:
An interactive time line
A welcome coloring comic strip (for ages 5-9) or a welcome detailed coloring page and introductory letter from Ava (for ages 10-15)
A Time Capsule kit to create your own historic memento
Additional introductory materials to use during your History Unboxed Subscription
Zane and Ava magically travel through time, and their adventures will present the time period to your child through the activities in the box. Each month will feature a different time and place with hands on crafts, activities, and art so that your child can learn about history in a memorable and exciting way.
Ancient History and Middle Ages subscriptions currently available.
History should be fun! Each monthly box comes with a story as well as activities and art for kids to get involved in. By taking part in the activities, they'll learn directly about the time in history that they're reading about.
Ask The Seller
I just ordered this. I'm worried I may have ordered the wrong age group. I need the older group. Is there a way to change my order or check it before it's sent out? I literally placed the order not even 5 minutes ago. Thank you. (:
Asked by a Homeschooler on June 9th, 2016
No worries! When you redeem the voucher on our website you can select either age group. Let me know if you have any additional questions :)
The introductory box comes with a time capsule, wall chart, sturdy cardboard binder (which we painted for art class) filled with all kinds of school supplies--scissors, colored pencils, sharpie, and pencil case. Our first actual box was filled with a terracotta bird whistle, Henna dye, wooden dice set, unicorn sticker/seal, instructions, pen pal letter, and detailed info on the culture. Comprehensive and perfect! Our favorite thing in the box that truly amazed it. We filled the terracotta bird with water, blew into it, and the song was as lovely as any songbird! I wish I could have all of their past boxes!

Hi! I'm Elizabeth. Small business enthusiast, creative force, and mom to 6 excellent children. As a child I volunteered at a living history museum and went on to co-direct the educational programs there as an adult. I also have home educated my own children for the last eleven years and taught at a local co-op for two years... so the idea of bringing hands-on history enrichment activities to your family is both very natural and very exciting for me! Thank you for supporting my family business and allowing me to share the learning that I love.
Hello! I'm Stephanie, edicational specialist and historian at History Unboxed. My passion for history began at an early age, sparked by my Felicity doll and books. In college, I majored in history, and then went back to school for a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I spent eight years in various classrooms: a Montessori preschool, substitute teaching every grade K-12, and finally two years teaching fifth grade. I worked on the farm at a local historic home, educating the public about farm life in the eighteenth century. I also do living history as a hobby and dabble in spinning, weaving, and homesteading. - Stephanie, mother and homeschooler
