Surprise Ride is a monthly subscription box for kids ages 6-11. All activities are fun, educational activities. Activities are a surprise and center around a theme like art, geography, outer space, food, and more! Each month, your child will receive all the supplies for two activities or crafts or experiments, a book, a snack, fun facts and some additional items. We received a single box (I bought it was for $5.95… Keep looking out for such offers), and the theme was China. The Surprise Ride had good information about the China. A storybook, a snack, and two crafts. One of them was a Chinese abacus. I am yet to write a review. But we loved this box!
