- The Backyard Box is filled with simple nature activities that will have your child sorting leaves, finding animal homes, drawing pictures in the dirt, and more! And, it all takes place in your own backyard!
Your child will love running around the yard at mach-speed, or looking for birds…even feeding ants! Choose a coin from the box and head on out. Your dirt-loving, rock-collecting child will have a blast exploring their outdoor environment in this fun & unique way!
The best part is that the activities never get old...kids can do them over and over again and have a different experience every time!

The Idea Box Kids The first Idea Box was made in 2000, for use with the owner Jennifer's own children. The Idea Box Kids opened in 2011, and quickly grew to include a variety of Idea Boxes. The Idea Box Kids brings fun, play-based, child-directed activities into your home & home-learning environment.
Our emphasis is on creating developmentally appropriate products that will encourage your child to lead themselves wherever they need to go, while making it easy for you! Not only do we want to encourage learning through play; we hope that our Idea Boxes help play a part in making long-lasting, feel-good memories for you and your children. Of course, we cannot say enough about the secretly educational benefits of our Idea Boxes, but that is for us grown-ups to worry about. The only thing your child needs to worry about is doing what they do best...playing!
