The snacks in this subscription box will take your family on a journey to another country using your taste buds as a vehicle! You might explore Taiwan with mochi, Greece by tasting baklava, or travel to Germany with ketchup potato sticks. Keep reading to learn more about how you can use these unique and tasty treats to learn about geography and world cultures in your homeschool.
A Fun Way To Learn About The World
The Universal Yums boxes come in three different sizes, so you can decide what’s right for your family. Each box contains sweet and salty snacks from one country outside the United States for you to taste. You might find yourself in Europe, Asia, or South America via your tastebuds and imagination. No matter which country your box comes from, you’re sure to get some unique and interesting flavors you’ve never tried before.
To help you bring these tasty lessons to life, you’ll get a 12 page booklet all about the country featured in your box. It’s filled with recipes, interesting facts, fun trivia, and more cool things to learn as you travel the world with snacks from Universal Yums.
Create Hands-On, Multi-sensory Learning In Your Homeschool
These Universal Yums boxes are a fun hands-on multi-sensory learning experience for your whole family! We love to share our box, taking time to explore the country of origin in all kinds of fun ways as we taste their “yums.”
Want to explore the world with Universal Yums in your Homeschool? See how we do it and homeschool with us as we travel to Spain with our subscription snack box.
We like to begin by finding the country our yums come from on our map. Encourage your homeschoolers to locate the country you’ll be traveling to with your Universal Yums box and talk about it:
- Which continent is the country in?
- Is it near or far from where you live?
- Do you think you might want to go there one day?
Then, check out the map of the country you’ll be traveling to in your Universal Yums box. You’ll be able to see where each snack comes from and learn more about your country. It’s a fun way to explore geography that your homeschoolers are sure to remember!
Travel Through Taste
Next, travel to your Universal Yums country through taste! Use the guide included in your box to learn about each snack. You’ll learn where it is from, why it’s popular, and what flavors to expect.
Then, it’s time to taste the yums! We like to share ours, giving everyone a taste and a chance to share what they think about the flavors. It’s a lot of fun to discuss each unique yum as we go.
In every box of Universal Yums, you’ll get to vote for your favorite yums, the weirdest or most unique yums, and the ones you didn’t like. We have a lot of fun being food critics as we discuss each snack. It’s not hard to pick our favorites, there are always a few we really enjoy.
In the Waldock family, we are big fans of trivia. Each Universal Yums box includes it’s own trivia about the country. These interesting facts really help our homeschooler remember the country and what it’s known for in a fun and engaging way. For example, did you know Spain once had a power nap competition with a cash prize? Now that’s my kind of competition!
