Venture Kit and Giveaway

October 20, 2016

Just like playing with baby dolls, toy kitchens, and building forts; children learn by mimicking adults and a variety of careers.  Why not also play entrepreneurship?

Venture Kits are designed by real entrepreneurs and Harvard MBAs, reviewed by real grade and high school teachers, and tested by real kidsVenture Kits arm kids with tomorrow’s must-have skills: initiative, grit, creativity, and problem-solving. 

We were sent the Treats to-go kit. My daughter enjoyed this kit because it included a part of the process making treats in the kitchen. The image above shows what arrived in our kit. 

My daughter read through the recipe cards and made her decision on what to make first, dipped pretzels.

 

She enjoyed reading the recipe, doing the prep and the creativity of decorating the dipped pretzels. 

As we worked in the kitchen, we talked about how many pretzels should go into the snack bags and how much she would charge. I love the idea of working through these different steps of an actual business. I am not a huge fan of children selling for money so we didn't follow through with those steps, although I know my daughter would have like it. I still find the Venture Kit and the process we went through fun and educational.

Treats To-Go is the first kit available to the public with more in the works. If you would like to try your own Treats to-go Venture Kit, you can enter to win one below.

This is really neat! My children love to play "store." This would be a great way to turn their play into a deeper learning experience. There is also something about an activity kit that comes to the door. For some reason, my kids get so excited whenever a package arrives for them. I could see this really sparking their interest. It would also be perfect for us, because my daughter is at the age that she is trying to figure out ways to earn and save money.

I love the thought that you are teaching new thought processes in children. It provokes more thinking in different ways.

My initial reaction is that I would probably use it very similarly to the way you did. I'm not comfortable having my daughter go out and try to sell things to the public at her age, and I wouldn't want her to try and sell things to her friends for money, either. That being said, the product planning, etc., seem like they'd make a fine academic exercise.

I would not mind giving it a try. Its pretty neat.

This would be super fun for my daughter who wants to have her own bakery one day.

I think this is a great idea!

It looks interesting as well as educational. I like it!
kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

I dont like kids selling stuff unless its a fundraiser for school/church. If it's an older teen then its fine. I think my niece would like this because she loves to bake. Thank you for the chance

I think it's really unique and fun!

I think this looks like something my girls would like.
