Can the My Little Keepers boxes be completed by a child on their own?
The boxes have been developed with the busy parent in mind. We will do all our job for you in terms of creating educative activities for your child. However adult supervision is required when opening the box and completing the activities. In our boxes we aim to include everything you need to get started. You may occasionally need things from your kitchen like a large tray, bowl, basket to keep activities inviting and accecable to your toddler.
