As a first time mommy, I don’t know how to teach my two year old daughter Chloe without getting bored. I want to teach her and at the same time she’s (me also) having fun. How? I recently discovered Buribox. You might be asking what is Buribox?
BuriBox is a Subscription Box Brought to Your Doorstep Monthly by Adarna House to Help You Develop Your Child’s Love of Reading. I used to subscribe over beauty boxes but this is my first time I subscribed with subscription box for my daughter. Well, I didn’t know that this kind of subscription box exists until now.
Every month, the Toddler BuriBox brings to your home books, activities, and art materials designed to develop the literacy, critical thinking, creativity, socio-emotional make-up, and gross and fine motor skills of your child.
They have designed the Toddler BuriBox for the Filipino child so most of the materials are bilingual and all refer to our Filipino culture. The Toddler BuriBox showcases themes on how the child sees himself and the world around him: I Am Me, My Home and My Community.
The first box of the Toddler BuriBox contains two board books in support of these themes.
Sampung Mga Daliri
It teaches a child about his body and its different parts. They have provided sheet music so that you can teach this song to your child.
You can think of simple actions that your child can imitate while singing the song: learning is more effective when two or more senses are engaged in the activity. In the posted paint activity of “How Big Are My Hands?” will help develop the hand and eye coordination of your child, an important skill for writing. It also enhances visual perception skills through comparison of hand sizes.
The World Around Me
Your child becomes acquainted with everyday objects and words that are part of the environment that surrounds him. This book will develop your child’s bilingual vocabulary as well as help him build a schema about the things around him.

Two activity books also form part of this first box.
