🌈Octobox is developed by a Senior Paediatric Occupational Therapist & tested by kids! Each Octobox is packed full of fun activities to help children improve their motor skills!🤸🏼♀️
Kids can continue to develop their motor skills at home during these unprecedented times & teachers can monitor their progress. Each Octobox is themed so teachers have been using the themes to support STEAM Education & incorporate other academic work such as creative writing, research projects & geography. How clever is that!🌎

AWARDS & PRESS
GET STARTED TODAY!
Working on a child's motor skills from an early age is a vital part of their development. Octobox activities are fun, creative, and proactive way to help improve a child's motor skills.
Octobox combines specially formulated crafts with engaging demonstrational videos. It’s a convenient & affordable way to help children develop their motor skills.
THE MIND BEHIND OCTOBOX
Octobox is developed by a team led by multi-award winning OT, Jessica Kennedy. Jess is the Senior Paediatric Occupational Therapist of her own private practice whereby she completes her intervention in the child's home environment. As Jess’s waiting list grew, she realised that an immediate solution to help develop motor skills in a structured and ongoing basis was needed.
The amount of families & school's seeking private OT support is constantly growing and having children on wait-lists is not a solution. Jess wanted to find a way to reach more children so that they could be proactive in the home and school environment.
The goal is to get kids more active, encourage motor skills through activities, coach parents & teachers, support skill development and embrace positive child development. All our resources are designed by Jess who is passionate about creating fun and enjoyable learning opportunities for kids.
OUR PLASTIC PROMISE
The world has enough plastic. You deserve to feel guilt-free about improving your child’s motor skills. That’s why we’re committed to using minimal plastic and reducing excess waste.
Our custom wooden OT Toys in our Whizz Kid Projects are designed and produced right here in Ireland. We do not include items that you likely have in your home or school already - things like tweezers, glue sticks, and sellotape. However, if you DO need these items, we’ll ship them to you. Our commitment to zero waste means we make zero profit on this part of our service.
