The theme for March’s OwlCrate Jr box was “Code Breakers” celebrating all things puzzling, coding, and of course, spies! So basically everything my 12 year old self was obsessed with … Here’s what was inside:

No body beats Usborne Books brain teaser and puzzler activity books! They aren’t messing around and some of these puzzles can be tough, but this Brain Games book seems a little more manageable and has arrived at the perfect time … filling up all these endless hours at home!

Another great time-filler is this itty bitty card game, Iota, from Gamewright. Gamewright makes some awesome games that are beloved by my family and I am excited to get into this card game on our next game night.

I love that OwlCrate Jr gave nod to Ada Lovelace, one of the world’s first, but mostly overlooked, computer programmers. This hardcover notepad features the quote from her: “The more I study, the more insatiable do I feel my genius for it to be.” It was designed by Hey Atlas Creative and I just love the bright rainbow background!

Also including this month is a code-your-own game instruction card. This “Bat In a Flap” computer game was created by software developer Max Wainewright and includes step by step instructions for kids to code their own computer game! Such a clever item! This team never ceases to amaze me with their excellent ideas and goodies that tie so well into their themes.
