Hurricanes? In a Kids Subscription Box?

There are lots of subscription boxes for kids out there and science activity kits. But we have yet to see a subscription box on hurricanes. So why did we at Plum Spark choose to create a Hurricanes learning adventure? Because we’re a Houston-based company. Because hurricanes are a part of our lives. Some years we’re lucky and we get away without any. Some years we experience the devastation of a Harvey. For kids, hurricanes can be both fascinating and terrifying. So this learning adventure demystifies hurricanes through hands-on activities and active learning. Regardless of where kids live, learning about weather science and natural disasters is always useful.

In this learning adventure, kids forecast a hurricane, name it and categorize it. And then they get to role play a meteorologist—a very important person in these parts! Kids can play an interactive and collaborative board game that’s all about preparing for natural disasters. It shows them that being prepared is a community-wide effort. And then there’s the storm surge demo, which is a super fun way to understand the differences in hurricane strengths and why storm surge is so powerful.

While hurricanes are a serious matter, we hope that kids will have fun with this and get a little messy. After all, what good is a hurricanes subscription box if kids can’t get a wee bit wet!
