M is for Monster - Preschool in a Box

Where, oh where was M is for Monster when I had toddlers and preschoolers? This "preschool in a box" is one subscription box you will adore if you have young children!

Bitsy #1 went to an adorable little small-town preschool. For much of that school year, we were living with my parents while we house-hunted. The preschool was a perfect fit for her and it didn't break the bank. But when Bitsy #2 was ready for preschool, we had moved into our home. We weren't very far away, but it was far enough and to a bigger town--we saw a big jump in the cost of preschool! Ouch!

Bitsy #2 ended up with quite the diverse preschool experience! One year, we had a little co-op with some friends from church. We'd each take a day to have the preschoolers in our home. It was wonderful! The next year, we were on a waiting list for a small preschool he ended up going to for the 2nd semester. But that 1st semester was pretty chaotic! Bitsy #2 was SO ready for school. I was constantly scouring the internet for ideas and searching stores for specific supplies for our lessons. It was exhausting! Looking back, M is for Monster would have been a perfect fit for us. 

That's my experience. I know as parents, we each have very unique experiences with our children. I am all for doing what works best for your family and your children. So if preschool boxes fit in to your toddler and preschooler experiences, I'd highly recommend trying M is for Monster.

M is for Monster was designed by a stay at home mom with too much to do. She spent many hours per week planning and shopping for things to do with her kids that week. She wanted to make other stay at home mom and dads jobs easier as well as working moms and dads who wanted to help their children grow. M is for Monster has themed weekly learning activities with all the supplies included for you and delivers them right to your door! No more planning and shopping and spending too much money on extra supplies!

Above is an example of some of the goodies in the May 2015 box. You will love the play-based learning activities geared toward your toddler or preschooler. Hop on over to M is for Monster to check out this amazing subscription box. You won't be sorry!

You can also like them on Facebook for updates. Then check out the blog for freebies! Yay! Free printables and free monthly lesson plans. Amazing!
