Mysteries in time Subscription Box Review

Items gifted for review – All thoughts are my own

Mysteries in Time are a monthly subscription box service for primary school aged children. With the majority of parents currently homeschooling, a subscription box can be a great way to entertain your children. For me it’s been so helpful to have this box full of activities and a real time saver during lockdown.

The boys love learning about history so they were so excited when the box arrived in the post. It actually looks like a time capsule. We are discovering loads of fun activities that are keeping us entertained.

The boys loved learning all about Ancient Egypt some interesting topics including mummies, hieroglyphs and pharaohs. They loved the story that came in the box ‘ Max and Katie’s Egyptian Adventure Story.’ The story was fun to read and perfect for their ages (7 and 9). I also found the activities in the box a great introduction to history and made learning fun for them.

The boys loved the Egyptian pen that came in the box and they also loved using the modelling clay. It was lots of fun to watching them trying to make Egyptian amulets with the clay! Both boys were kept entertained with the magazine full of interesting facts and activities, stickers and colouring sheets. With the giant map the boys practised their map skills by locating Egypt on the map. Placing their Ancient Egypt sticker on the map timeline was next on the list. On the Mysteries In Time Website to you can find more information about the Egyptians too!

      My six year old loves learning about history, she especially has enjoyed learning about world War 2 following VE day ❤️

  1. My kids would love this. One in particular is really interested in the ancient Egyptians at the moment.

  2. This is such a great idea to learn history, both for adults and children. They say learning through play is the best way to learn and this would be great for the kids, they dont even realise they are learning because they are having so much fun

  3. These look really awesome, would love to expand my own as well as my daughter’s knowledge, tho having a degree in history might mean I know a lot, but there’s always something new and a new point of view to consider – history is another country, one none of us has really visited!

  4. How fab is this. History is so important as the younger generation will be our future story tellers

  5. Katrina Adams

    I think these subscription boxes are fab! They are so educational and fun. Perfect for my Goddaughter who is really interested in history and wants to be an archeologist.

  6. My daughter would absolutely love this! She is fascinated by history so this looks so much fun, whilst being really educational too!
