A couple of weeks ago Boo was sent a Weekend Box to review. Boo loves to be doing things all the time and I’m quite useless at arranging crafts and things for her so craft subscription boxes are perfect for our family as there is always something in the house for her to do 🙂
Weekend Box is a revolutionary new concept for having Healthy, Green and Creative activities for your children aged 3-8 delivered right through your door every fortnight.
Each box contains 4 categories: Something to EAT (a healthy recipe with accompanying secret ingredient), Something to MAKE (a craft kit with all the materials required), Something GREEN (some seasonal seeds to plant or something to make with recycling/rubbish material) and Something to READ or WRITE (a creative story writing game, for example).
Our boxes are sent out (with free delivery) in time for the weekend every fortnight and since everything’s included in the box, you can focus on spending time having fun with your little ones.
The weekend box comes with 5 activity cards and various bits and pieces that you will need for each activity! The activity cards are great and make it very easy to follow and give tips and advice, they list everything that you will need for each activity so it’s really simple to get prepared before you start!
Firstly we made Pop Pom Pig & Sheep, everything for this activity was included in the box – it’s very simple, you basically just have to glue the faces on to the pom poms. It took Boo about 5 minutes but she did enjoy it 🙂
We then moved onto the ‘Beautiful Basil’ card which is basically grow your own basil – everything you need for this activity is provided except the plant pot! Boo really enjoyed doing this, especially watching the compost pellets expand in the water! She can’t wait for her basil to grow!
That’s as far as we have got so far, so we still have three more activities to go, Patchwork Letters is next, we need to print off some letters using the PC for this task and find a cereal box other than that everything is included.
There is also a recipe to make Carrot Soup which looks yummy and very simple too, Boo is looking forward to making this after school one day this week – we have all the ingredients in the house without having to make a special trip to the shops and there is also a special weekend box spice mix to add!
The other activity is a Build a Story. The card gives you characters, a setting etc and asks you questions and you write a story!! I think this is a lovely activity and one which Boo will enjoy – she loves to write and often gets a bit stuck for inspiration so this is perfect for her.
We love the Weekend Box and are sure that you will to! A one-off box will cost you £10, a monthly subscription (2 boxes per month) is £15 or a quarterly subscription (6 boxes) is £42!
If you’d like to give the Weekend Box a try then if you use WBSONIA at the checkout you can get your first box for £5.00 including delivery!
