When it comes to keeping little minds busy it can be quite a task at the best of times as the words ‘I’m bored’ are a combination to make me twitch! I’m always looking for fun, affordable and inventive ways to surprise my children whilst encouraging them to learn and have fun without plonking them in front of a TV screen or burning through batteries which is where The Weekend Box is fantastic!
Priced at just £4.95 a fortnight including free delivery the mini Weekend Box delivers inspiring, creative and fun activities directly to your doorstep with everything you need to keep little minds and fingers busy. Each box features a world and calendar appropriate theme from Mother’s Day and Easter to Halloween, rainforests and Christmas with plenty of exploratory topics and ways to have fun whilst learning. The full sized boxes target four key areas including something to MAKE as every child loves arts and craft, something to BAKE which I especially look forward to, something to EXPLORE with the great outdoors being a treasure trove for little minds and something GREEN typically involving plants or up-cycling challenges, with the mini box being a condensed version of this.
Created by child experts to stimulate, nurture and encourage development of key life skills my eight year old daughter Millicent is a keen fan of receiving post and loves the idea of something special arriving just for her. This weekends mini box features a parrot mask craft to construct and colour with foam, card, glue, crayons, elastic and a mask template, a grow a rainforest project using a recycled plastic bottle with soil, string and seeds, a fun facts card about the rainforest along with some cheery jokes, a selection of collectable rainforest character stickers and certificate to colour and attach reward stickers to once all of the activities have been completed. Millie had a fantastic time completing her rainforest discovery box and says “It’s amazing and other children should try it because you get to have fun and make some really beautiful art.” And it’s also pretty handy that she now has some spare glue and crayons for her craft box!
