It is a whole new world for parents and schooling. Parents are having to take charge with how their kids are learning and teaching from home. Along with the new challenges, one of the most pressing issues is that they’ll be looking for ways to get kids off the computer by teaching them with real activities that don’t include screen time.
Harlow’s Harvest is leading the way with this concept. Harlow’s Harvest comes kid (and mom)-tested and approved. It’s the brain-child of 9-year-old entrepreneur, Harlow Tyrner and her mom, Ashley Tyrner – CEO of Farmbox Direct. Harlow, a self-proclaimed vegan, wanted to follow in her mom’s footsteps in helping her peers learn more about eating more nutritiously but in a way that would inspire them to do so. And as a single mom, who is also homeschooling, Ashley knows a thing or two about how to make learning more engaging and fun.
Harlow’s Harvest is a child’s cooking and education partner with benefits! This monthly, STEM influenced, subscription box provides hands on cooking and education, encouraging kids to cook their own food and learn their way around the kitchen all while supplementing what they learn in school and getting them away from hours of sitting in front of a screen.
Each STEM influenced box comes with recipe cards, a science project, background on the dish they are making connected to that month’s theme. Through cooking, they get to practice reading recipes, calculate the costs of food/grocery shopping, work on fractions by measuring, experiment with their food, and provide nutritional facts so children can learn about nutrition and go for something green instead of something sweet.
Upcoming Themes include:
● September – This kit is out of this world! Enjoy campfire foods and solar system activities under the stars with the Starry Night kit
● October – Celebrate culture in the Country of Mexico kit complete with facts around Día de los Muertos. If your kid is a fan of the movie Coco – they’ll love this!
● November – Happiness is homemade & food is the ingredient that binds us together. Cultivate this season of thanks with the Gratitude kit.
● December – Tis the season to bake and make memories! Get festive in the kitchen with the Holiday Spirit kit
deal for children between the ages of 4 and 15, younger children will need help from parents, whereas older kids will love to demonstrate their skills to an audience. The recipes are simple enough even for those who have never cooked before yet difficult enough for those who want a challenge in the kitchen. Each recipe has a custom nutrition facts panel to help your child learn to navigate reading food labels with confidence. Parents have the option of purchasing 1 box, a 6-month subscription, or 1-year monthly box subscription. A monthly subscription to Harlow’s Harvest is affordable, at $19.99 a month.
It’s science, geography, space and so much more. What a way to learn!
