> Collect objects and images that relate to the theme or topic you would like to discuss
> When choosing objects think about what makes them interesting and engaging: What are their tactile and sensory qualities, could they prompt questions about what they are or how they are used, might they evoke memories or feelings?
> Include images of objects and things that do not fit in the box and other relevant print material.
> Provide materials for drawing and writing as well as having verbal conversations. Postcards can work well as they are a recognisable space for dialogue.
> Preparing conversation prompts in advance can be help to keep the conversation going and they could be printed on cards in the box.
> Presenting the box with the lid on allows for a reveal and intrigue about what is inside. You could ask the other person to guess what is inside and maybe provide a small clue through the type of box or something on the outside of it.
> Take the objects out one by one and spend time exploring together.
> Discuss, draw, and/or write in response.
