Sublime Slime Jumbo Activity Box Giveaway for age 7-11 (Sent By The Curiosity Box)

We had a great time exploring at The Digital Kids Show last weekend and one of the most exciting things we found in the STEM Zone was The Curiosity Box. I've heard of their boxes before and been impressed at the quality and range of activities at very fair prices. It was lovely to meet the people behind the project and bring home a box for my boys to try out themselves.


The Curiosity Box have a massive range of different Science and Engineering Boxes for children aged 7-11, and a new CuriosiTots Box for younger children aged 4-6. We were given a Jumbo Curiosity Box: Atomic for children aged 7-11. My 10 year old was ecstatic!


We haven't yet had much time to play with it, but inside the Atomic Curiosity Box we found a battery, blu tack and fizzy tablets, weighing scales, milk powder, Magnesium Salt and lots of other genuinely exciting goodies to complete 3 different activities. Plus a pack of 'Molymods' - rods and balls to make your own model atoms.


The Molymods are really smart and longer lasting than the grapes or jellybeans we've used before to recreate 'Oxygen'. They're a regular feature in the Curiosity Boxes and so you can collect them and create an ever-increasing number of elements.


There is an Instant Weight Loss Activity - what happens to the weight of your ingredients when you release carbon dioxide into the air? This includes a results sheet, punched instruction/information sheet to collect and pocket scales. My son has weighed EVERYTHING.


The Splitting Water Activity is a fascinating activity which we haven't explored yet, but you make your own 'electrolysis device' and turn water into something else...


The 3rd activity in our pack is Atomic trumps cards - we've all played before and it's a great game for helping younger readers with literacy and numeracy, it's amazing what big numbers they can read, add and subtract when they think they'll win! And I even spotted the elusive Higgs Boson...


I'm really, truly impressed with The Curiosity Box. It's beautifully thought out and the experiments are unusual and really interesting. EVERYTHING you need is included, so you don't have to search the house or go and buy ingredients, and there is no extra cost.

These are excellent STEM activity boxes which will really support your child's learning and schoolwork, general knowledge and understanding of their world - and they are excellent fun! Ideal gifts when you don't know what a child already has, or want to buy something different that will keep them busy.


The Curiosity Box sell a big range of science equipment and individual boxes, which start at only £7 for a Pico Box with 1 Activity (and there are currently 19 to choose from!). There is also a CuriosiTots Box for younger children aged 4-6.

They also have 3 sizes of boxes for children aged 7-11 on monthly subscription:
Pico (1 activity) from £6.95pm
Nano (2 activities) from £10.83pm
Jumbo (3 activities) from £16.66pm.

Find out more and place orders on The Curiosity Box website.

I'm delighted to have a brilliant Christmas Present Giveaway which is a bit of an exclusive. The Curiosity Box have offered one of my readers the Jumbo-sized Sublime Slime Box, which won't be available to non-subscribers until around 15th December (subscribers receive it in early December).
