Why Coconut Boxs?
1. Schools are not teaching
Very important skills are missing in your child’s school education. They are persistence, kaizen, risk-taking, optimism, determination, focus, etc. We call it will power in short. Only parents can teach that. Coconut Boxs helps that.
2. 10-month toy, not a 10-day toy
It is not a simple activities box or a toy. It is a 10-month program to build 12 important skills in your child.
3. It is for both parents and child
Normally activities boxes and toys are for children. But Coconut Boxs is for both parent and children. Parent role in using Coconut Boxs is very important.
What’s inside Coconut Boxs?
4. 3 best open-ended learning materials
Very versatile three interesting open-ended learning materials i.e wooden blocks, natural clay and bamboo sticks.
5. Safe, Natural, no chemicals used
They are designed as naturally processed, no chemical added lightweight and safe material.
6. Build a five-star hotel not house
What can you do with Coconut Boxs is more important. A simple house can be built with sand, cement and steel. But that same materials go for building a five-star hotel. In the five stat hotel engineers imagination, detailed planning, tram work, time and budget are different. The same thing goes with Coconut Boxs. Parent and child can build important skills with Coconut Boxs by spending more time and putting more efforts.
How to use Coconut Boxs?
7. Make it experiential
Rather than explaining intellectually, show the skills. Persistence can’t be explained rather it can be shown by the parents. This is something no school, nobody can do except parents.
8. Give an opportunity for the child to see your personality
Lot of us show the best of our skills and personality in outside, professional world. But your child never sees as a determined person, focussed person, risk-taking person, etc. Using Coconut Boxs it is possible to show these skills to your child.
9. Observe and Reflect
When your child solves challenges in Coconut Boxs, calmly observe and have a reflection at a later point if time. Your observation and reflection will help your child in building skills.
