Each Canny Pack is thoughtfully planned and influenced by “The Canny Five” areas of growth: Sensory, Art, STEM, Music, and Motor. Packs’ main developmental focus rotates through these 5 themes from month to month, but each month includes electronic bonus materials to provide additional play focused in each of these areas.
Each pack includes all supplies for 3 distinct activities:
1. One “Independent Play” Reusable and Long-Lasting
2. Two “Parent Play”
3. Insert Cards describing power of play
4. Insert Card describing specific play included in pack
5. Additional bonus materials online
Packs are loaded with educational play opportunities and chances for open-ended, creative play, as well as more formal “parent-and-me” projects & experiments.
Canny Packs are developed by a team of parents and child development professionals. As professionals passionate about healthy childhood growth, the Canny Pack Team ensures that each pack contains opportunities for a child to strengthen skills needed to be successful in early social and educational settings. Packs are first tested by a panel of children to ensure content is engaging and enriching.
The recommended age range for our subscriptions are 2-8. Canny Packs are designed in a way that can appeal to a wide range of child ages and skill levels. With Canny Packs’ focus on learning through play, we encourage open-ended creative use of the materials sent in each box. We do our best to make activities flexible. No one child is the same nor do they all want to learn the same. Canny Pack activities are designed to adapt to the child’s age, creativity and interest.
A family can choose how they’d like to receive their Canny Packs. A family could choose to order individual subscriptions for each child in the family, or siblings can choose to share a subscription. To share a subscription, simply add 2 names to the “first name” field (i.e. “David and Jana”) or a family name (“The Jones Kids”).
