Sign up for the free learning toolkit
Tired of traditional learning activities, we're on a mission to make at-home learning fun for kids.
We created Blimey Box to help other busy parents give their children a unique and fun learning adventure at home.
Do you like treasure hunts and escape rooms?
Well, your kids do, too.
As fans of Goonies and National Treasure, we wanted to show our kids the adventure of treasure hunts and thrill of escape room games.
Jason put together a homemade escape game kit. He ordered resettable locks, locking-boxes, and even a lockable bag on Amazon. He then created puzzles (with simple math problems) at Brewer’s level.
Our first box was janky and thrown-together, but...
Brewer loved it! And so did we.
We noticed Brewer worked hard and persevered through the puzzles in order to unlock the mystery treasure.
To him, it was a fun game.
To us it was an easy way to engage his thinking and keep him entertained at home.
For convenience, we made the escape game kit portable.
The kit went with us, wherever we wanted to keep our kids occupied (and screen-free) for 30 minutes or more.
Restaurants, Grandma’s house, and even Breweries turned into a treasure hunt escape room.
Our son begged for more games, and we continued creating puzzles for him to solve.
As an elementary teacher, Whitney developed games that focused on the academic skills he needed to practice, like math and reading.
