One CD, one digital download and a songbook are included!

Join our mixed age class for children from 0 to school age and their grownup! Be a family that makes music together with song, chant, instruments and movement. The mixed age allows siblings to participate together and for you to see music through the lens of beautiful young eyes. See the babies babble along with the music, the 1-year-old sit in wonder and then begin to find their own way to expressing what they feel. See your children learn to move to music and celebrate and rhythm and tones they hear. Be a part of the joy that comes with making Music Together.

Outside the Box Creation:

An Art Project, in a box, sent to you with quality supplies, inspiration, and a book too!

Outside The Box Creation allows you the unique opportunity to connect and create with your child one-on-one, while also teaching them (in the most fun and imaginative way) what’s so wonderful about art.  

Who: Designed for ages 5 to 11.  No parent/caregiver art experience required - just the desire to have a fun, creative time with your kids.

We live in a world where art budget cuts are prevalent and our kids’ eyes are always glued to screens, and Outside the Box Creation wants to change that.

What's In the Box?:  

We thoughtfully design our boxes to ensure a fun and hassle-free experience from start to finish.  

  • Storytime: Spark your child's imagination by first reading the enclosed book together first.
  • Superior Supplies: Quality supplies, many of which can be used again and again.
  • Sharing is Caring:  Regular boxes include supplies for two people, large size boxes include supplies for 4. 
  • Easy Peasy: A booklet of easy-to-follow graphic instructions, no art expertise required!

Outside the Box Subscriptions:  Pre-Paid and month-to-month subscriptions are available.
