Let us help you discover history in a whole new way.

Nothing brings life to learning like a hands-on history box full of stories, crafts, and more, delivered to your door!

How it Works

The adventure begins when you sign up for your subscription! You will receive a welcome box including:

  • An interactive timeline poster
  • A welcome letter and coloring sheet
  • A time capsule kit to create your own historic memento
  • A worksheet to help students understand how to read a timeline
  • A Family Tree kit for exploring your student’s personal history

Then each month you will receive a new box exploring a different place in time, according to the era you selected. Each box contains:

  • An age-specific coloring sheet
  • 1-2 (very!) high quality crafts
  • A sticker for your timeline
  • 2-3 items of additional enrichment material

For the Ancient and Middle Ages timelines, the box you receive will depend on the month, and all subscribers will receive the same box that month—great for collaborating with friends who are also subscribers!

For the American History timeline, boxes arrive according to a set sequence, so as to build the story of our nation chronologically.

Learn the History of America and gain a new appreciation for the people, events, and cultures that formed our great nation!

This is our newest timeline, and is still being added to! Start with the three major cultures that came together in our beginnings (Africa, Europe, and Native American) and then learn about colonial life, the Revolutionary War, our Constitution, and more.

Each history box is tailored to one of three different age groups, to keep the materials engaging for everyone!

Kids (5-9)

Highly visual, approachable materials for younger students that can be explored with the help of an educator. In addition to craft materials, recipes, and souvenirs our monthly magazine helps give educators the background they need to teach about the topic of the month.

Teens (10-15)

An in-depth, relatable version of the subscription that can be completed mostly independently. Learn about the past through the eyes of a teenager and enjoy memorable crafts, recipes, stories, and mementos.

Young Adults (16+)

Relax and become inspired with a monthly history fix as you try your hand at a wide variety of crafts, historic recipes, and history based games. Bite sized bits of history fit into your busy schedule and provide you with fun information you will want to share with your friends.

Educational Team

Elizabeth

Image of Elizabeth playing with her kidsHi! 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.

Stephanie

Image of Stephanie with her babyHi! I’m Stephanie. 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.  I’m now a mom of two little ones of my own, and plan on homeschooling both of them.
