A lot of children never encounter (let alone master) very ordinary tools.
Klooikoffers (Tinkerboxes) changes that: Klooikoffers is a lending system that provides families with tools and materials to explore and create together. The big bonus: stuff to do with your child, that is both challenging for her/him and for you as a parent!
Lending a box is for free and is organised through schools. We started early 2015 and have launched our first 4 boxes. So all children (and parents!) learn there’s a lot more to creating and making than the iPad!
Here’s little summary:
Four boxes are being distributed in cooperation with our lovely partner Conrad. Two more boxes are finished within 2 weeks and available soon!
Klooikoffer #1: the wire stripper
- Wire stripper
- 3 leds
- 1 battery
Klooikoffer #2: hotglue
- Glue gun
- Googly eyes
- Plastic tubes
- Funny foil
Klooikoffer #3: the soldering iron
- Soldering iron and stand
- Iron thread
Klooikoffer #4: sharp knives
- 2 Opinel knives
Klooikoffer #5 containing Make.do and Klooikoffer #6 containing tools for various measurements will be available soon. All boxes are developed with children and parents. We make them as we go along. These are the best days!
Klooikoffers is a completely voluntarily activity. Because giving is the best reward.
