Crafty Subscription Box for Kids

My regular readers will know that I do love a subscription box and the Weekend Box club is a great mystery box for children.  The box is packed with art and craft materials to complete, which is perfect for anyone who needs a little help in getting crafty with the kids, because lets face it, we can only surf Pinterest for so long :-)

the new crafty subscription box for kids - Weekend box Club

What is the weekend box club all about?

These great little subscription boxes are delivered directly to your door in time for the weekend (hence the name), and to help with all budgets there is a new box that has been launched called Mini Weekend Boxes.  These boxes contain 2 themed activities and most importantly all the necessary craft items you'll need for your child to complete the tasks.

Unpacking our kids craft subscription box - Mini Weekend Box
These new mini weekend boxes cost £4.95 each and as I mentioned above there will be 2 themed projects to complete - for the pieces that you get (and delivered to your door) that's very good value for money as each craft will cost you just under £2.50 for an hour or so crafting fun.

We completed each of our activities over the course of the weekend.  Our themed box was Rainforest and our first task was to create a parrot mask.  Whilst we do love to wear masks, capes and well bed lining .... around the house, I found with this project, it was mainly me doing the work - this is because a lot of cutting is involved.  In hindsight, I could have cut everything out for Max before he started this project, so needless to say his attention did wander as I'm not the fasted of cutters.  He did enjoy the gluing..... maybe a bit too much!

Rainforest themed subscription craft box for children
We completed each of our activites over the course of the weekend.  Our themed box was Rainforst and our first task was to create a parrot mask.  Whilst we do love to wear masks, capes and well bed lining .... around the house, I found with this project, it was mainly me doing the work - this is because a lot of cutting is involved.  In hindsight I could have cut everything out for Max before he started this project, so needless to say his attentionn wondered very quickly as I'm not the fasted of cutters.  He did enjoy the gluing..... making a bit too much!
What child doesn't like a bit of gluing...
Whilst we were in 'masking mood' we also created some turtle masks out of some felt and the parrot template!

Our second activity was very much for Max.  I'm not sure if it's because he loves nature, water or dirt..... probably all 3!  This rainforest activity was called 'Grow a Rainforest' and fortunately, I had looked at the instructions and ingredients to see what we needed before we started.  I say fortunately as you need an empty bottle for this, and the minute my son sees an activity that involves bottles of any kind, he wants to decant the contents into any random bowl, bucket or box!

Grow your own rainforest with mini weekend box club
Just need that never ending squash bottle .....
So once our squash bottle was empty we set about making our own rainforest, and this activity we both enjoyed.  Maybe like I said it is because it involves water and mud, but maybe also because it is something that we can continue to care for and watch grow.
Little pellets of soil - a little boy's dream!

getting crafty with weekend box club - ideal for rainy days
Making our own rainforest 

Each project took no longer than 30 minutes to complete, and for my 4-year-old that's about his attention span.  That's not to say we didn't complete other projects and drawing whilst the 'craft table' was out, and the good think about these mini weekend boxes is it gives you ideas for future projects.  I can see us saving our bottles and possibly making more rainforests in future weeks, and thanks to the weekend box club, we now have the know-how on the best way to do this.

Finally, and one of the most important aspects of these boxes - they fit through the letterbox!  So no red cards or tracking your parcel down with the neighbour, if you're out for the day, no matter as I mentioned above the boxes are sent out later in the week with the aim to have these on your doorstep by the weekend.

  1. We also did this review. 2 of our rainforest seeds germinated a couple of days ago, but no sign of the other 2 yet
