What is the weekend box club all about?
|Unpacking our kid's craft subscription box - Mini Weekend Box|
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 glueing..... maybe a bit too much!

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!

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.
