Funics ABC box is a monthly fun and educational box delivered to your child at home.
As your child's first educator (it's been a while since you were at school where many things have changed recently) we want to arm you with support and knowledge to help your child get off to a great start on their literacy journey.
The contents follow the same order as is taught in many schools. We have planned them to link with the Government's 'The reading framework - teaching the foundations of literacy 2021' and 'The statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (EYFS) 2021'.
The contents are created by teachers and build on knowledge and skills each month. The boxes will include letter formation, phonics, reading and writing activities.
We will include a range of products each month including, games, activities, colouring, stickers, and a surprise, to help your child develop all the skills needed to be able to read and write.
The first box will also included added extras.
- An A3 alphabet poster to colour as you collect all the letters/sounds.
- A caterpillar finger puppet to help form the correct letter formation and to develop language skills.

Funics was founded by Rachael and Helen who have always had a passion for teaching and caring for young children. The business was born out of many years of experience and a desire to assist and educate both young people and their carers. We wanted to bring a sense of the fun and excitement of early language learning alongside skills that will genuinely benefit their reading and writing journey before starting formal school.
We love working within our local community but would love to reach further afield to support many others. We want learning to be a joy but also to educate adults on all the vital skills needed before children can begin to learn to read and write. With these key skills developed then the process of reading and writing will be so much smoother for your child.
