Everything you would receive at an in-person Discovery Time is available to you in the box.  The box comes with stick puppets for songs or rhymes, three-four books, and 2 STEAM activities.

Themes for March and April are: Birds, Trees, Bugs, Animals, Flowers, At the Beach, Under the Sea, At the Pond, In the Jungle, In the Mountains, In the Savanna, and Volcanoes.
