What people are saying

“The Peas and Pod boxes are fantastic! Not only are all of the activities well thought out, engaging and creative; but they teach children all about the natural world. Sending out these boxes over lockdown to the children in our reception class really inspired them to get creative and to learn and enquire about the world around them.  Parents loved the boxes and they helped to capture and motive children’s learning at home. The boxes are AMAZING – I cannot recommend them enough.”
