Looking for something to keep the kids entertained and learning over the summer break?

The Wizards and Wonders at Roots of Fantastical Matters subscription-style box could be just the thing.

Designed by teachers for kids aged between six and 12, the boxes encourage reading, creativity and cross-curricular learning.

Kids will get to learn how to care for a phoenix, take a broomstick riding theory test, and try time travel.

Even reluctant readers can be encouraged to discover the science behind enchanted lava, calculate the sizes of mythical creatures, engineer some dragon claw extenders, and much more.

These activities combine storytelling with interactive STREAM activities – science, technology, research, engineering, art and mathematics – hidden between the lines to inspire children to experiment, decipher, research, build, create and calculate ‘factual matters’ in the real world.
