What moms are saying
It's such a blessing for this busy mama of 3!
Thank you Sandbox Academy for all your ideas, planning and expertise! It's such a blessing for this busy mama of 3 to easily get some special one-on-one time with my middle child. It was a fun first day of "preschool playschool" as my son likes to call it!
We are really loving the preschool playbook. It's so perfect for our life!
We are really loving the Preschool Playbook! It's so perfect for our life! The best part is how versatile it is and I feel zero pressure to do it ALL on any particular day. I just figure we will work our way through each theme however long it takes. Plus my 6 years old daughter loves seeing what were up to. So we are all loving it!
It's all the fun parts about homeschooling!
We are looking forward to this! We've skipped ahead in the playbook to do the camping unit before a trip this weekend. LOVE the flexibility. It's all the fun parts about homeschooling but without the 500 hours googling "PreK activities"!
THE SEASONAL PLAYBOOK
THE EVERGREEN UNITS ARE AWESOME, THE SEASONAL UNITS ARE MAGICAL.

Sandbox co-op box
Weekends don’t have to be the same old routine every time. Spice things up with playful educational activities for kids and parents to do together!
Dig deep into topics such as space, oceans, and school through 21+ DIY arts and science projects, hand-picked picture books, and kid-approved recipes that guarantee hours of fun.
Everything you need to take your child’s learning to the next level, now in the Sandbox Co-Op Box.
Do you need to buy The Preschool Playbook and The Co-Op Box together?
No. Both are nice to have, especially if you’ve got active kids. But they are two separate products that do not rely on each other. While they offer the same style of activities, they differ in the number of activities and the level of DIY you have to do.
The Preschool Playbook is filled with 300+ activities, which require you to provide all of the materials and do the prep work. The Co-Op Box, on the other hand, has 21+ activities and comes with all the materials you need prepped and ready for you. You’ll just use your own scissors, glue, and markers.
What age range is this for?
The Preschool Playbook, as well as The Seasonal Playbook, is best for kids between the ages of 3 and 5, but some 2.5-year-olds may also enjoy it. I suggest you manage your expectations on their independence levels. Even your older kids might also love doing the activities while they are on school breaks.
Can I see a sample?
Sure thing. I have a copy of the Transportation unit from The Preschool Playbook as a free sample. You can download it here.
[Digital Playbook] Can I send the digital files for printing?
Yes, of course. I know some families have more than one child doing the activities and getting multiple copies of the template book and writing journal makes sense. Feel free to print more copies for everyone in your home if you want to.
Tip: I got mine printed double-sided and spiral-bound with a clear cover at Homeschool Printing Company. Their services are by far the cheapest I could find. I used color ink on the lesson plan book as the pictures are so much easier to see that way.
[Digital Playbook] How can I edit the Preschool Playbook to say my child’s name on the custom pages?
Open the template PDF in Adobe reader in Ready mode—not Edit mode which is password protected. On the Introduction page, you should see the word "name" or "Lucy". Highlight "name" or "Lucy" and type your child's name. Your child's name will then be automatically inserted into the book, and you’ll be ready to print.
I bought the Playbook Curriculum and I can not wait to start it with my kids next week!! The supplies are simple things I already have, and if I don't have them they're easily replaceable with something I do. I love seeing that it looks like a lot of fun ideas even my 2 year old can join in on. I'm really excited to start!
The Preschool Playbook has been awesome for homeschooling my 3yo twins. They’ve loved all the activities and always ask to do homeschool.
I was a director of a daycare for 15 years and did lesson plans for all ages. I now have a 3.5 year old and a busy household so the playbook is absolutely great. I printed the digital version at home and put in a binder to easily access pages. I love how everything is coordinated between activities, books, and materials. All I have to do is get it together at the beginning of the week and we are set. love it.
This program is better than I expected it to be! My 4 year old LOVES “preschool time”. He asks every day when is it “preschool time”. There are SO many activities and things to do. I love the layout and how educational it is. It makes it so easy! I love the preschool playbook!
Very accommodating and helpful
