Tutoring is one option that many parents consider, but what if that tutor could be packed into a box and delivered to your home throughout the year? A tutor in a box that would cover all areas of the curriculum and cater for a range of learning styles from Preschool until the end of Primary School.
Opening and unpacking our Brilliant Box! The mini paints are just the actual cutest!

"When Lisa became a mum, the classroom was swapped for the home and instead of teaching English and Maths, she was now teaching why we don't draw on the walls and why we do need to eat more than a mouthful a day!"
"Erin now spends most days working on her computer in her front room, with breaks for swimming lessons, cups of tea, turning on Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse and watching 4 year old interpretive dance performances (because why wouldn't you??)." - Sunshine Collective Website
So they have created the 'Brilliant Boxes' - put together with care, thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Nothing is overlooked. Instructions are easy to follow, the materials are high quality and everything is labelled so you know exactly what goes with what. The activities (7 Maths and 7 English) are fun, exciting, hands on and most importantly relevant.
So many to choose from! Where to start??
|First choice - threading! Excellent for fine motor development, listening & following instructions plus counting|
|Putting pom poms on circles using the tongs, counting them, and practising tracing numbers|
|Caterpillar counting. Great for 1:1 correspondance|
|Cutting practise! Perfect for fine motor skill development|
Have a squiz at what comes in the Foundation (first year of school) Brilliant Box. You can order a one off box, 5 boxes spread throughout two terms of school, or an entire year of boxes (10 in total). The preschool box is sold as a one off.
Here's an example of what you'll find in the Level 1 (Year 1) Brilliant Box. Lots of hands on measuring activities with different materials and methods plus some critical thinking required for a literacy task. The activities in the boxes are always different.
Ok, so just before I go, I want to show you how super nice Erin and Lisa are. As a thank you to me for doing this review for their Brilliant Boxes, there was even a little bit of extra brilliance for me...
How did they know I have a secret (not so secret) crush on Ryan Gosling??
For more info about The Sunshine Collective's Brilliant Boxes (particular for older year levels as I didn't get into that) go here to the website, here to their Facebook, or here to their Instagram. You could also drop them an email at email@example.com.
I was kindly gifted these three Brilliant Boxes for the purpose of this review. Thanks to Erin and Lisa for giving me the chance to share your fantastic business that I'm sure will help lots of students on their paths to brilliance.
