Bring the Institute of Imagination to your home with the imagination box.

*All boxes have been assigned and we don’t have anymore available now! Sorry about this, but please sign up to our newsletter to keep updated on upcoming events and workshops*

What is an imagination box? 

An imagination box is a multi-sensory resource pack, filled with everything you need to complete nine activities. It’s been specially designed for children and young people from neurodivergent backgrounds. Activities include stop frame animation, playing with food colouring, and sensory theatre with Oily Cart.

Who is this for?

This is for children and young people aged 5-18 years old that have special educational needs, profound or multiple learning disabilities, autism and/or who are neurodivergent. You must be living in or go to school within Brent, Barnet or Harrow, to be eligible for an imagination box.

We do have a limited number of boxes available so please only sign up if this applies to your child or young person. We are only able to supply one box per household. We are also able to provide boxes for teachers to use in classrooms. If you have any queries, please email imaginationhub@ioi.london or call us on 0207 494 9153.

What is included in the box? 

  • A range of materials such as food colouring, tissue paper, feathers and much more
  • Four instructional booklets covering: Digital Making, Sensory Theatre, Sensory Play and Tinkering with Everyday Objects
  • Recipe cards to help you find all the resources needed for each activity (we’ve included as much as we can, but there will be some things you will have to find at home)
  • Links to further online videos to help you on your imagination journey

How much does this cost? 

This is a funded programme with John Lyons, so it is free to sign up for a box. You just need to live or go to school in Brent, Barnet or Harrow. All we ask is that you are able to provide feedback, either via phone and/or email when we contact you.

When will I receive my box? 

We currently have two shipping dates:

  • 25th November (for all sign ups made before 24th November)
  • 15th December (for all sign ups between 25th November – 14th December)

We aim to keep you updated via email on the progress of your shipment.

How do I sign up? 

All boxes have been assigned and we don’t have anymore available now! Sorry about this, but please sign up to our newsletter to keep updated on upcoming events and workshops.

Can I see what the resources are like before I receive the box?
