This post is brought to you by Wummelbox, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
It’s raining, it’s pouring – the kids are board. Again.
What to do? How about one of those cute kids crafts you saw on Pinterest? Shoot, you don’t have the right supplies.
Never fear — Wummelbox to the rescue.
Filled with everything you need to make several Pinterest-worthy kids crafts, Wummelboxes are the perfect answer to the summer-time-storm blues. From scissors and markers, to fabric crayons and paints each box contains instructions and specific supplies as well as supplies you can use later for other crafts. Delivered by subscription once a month, once you let the secret out about the Wummelbox, your kids will be waiting by the door for the mail man.
And did I mention directions? Each box comes with illustrated instructions to help you put all of those supplies to good use.
Each box is created around a central theme such as Color & Light, Circus or Dexterity. Part of the fun is that you never know what the next theme will be until it arrives. We received a Food & Nutrition so all of the projects inside revolved around food.
- Fruit and Veggie Game – Which involved a lot of coloring and then learning about which fruits and veggies grow on the ground, and which grow in trees.
- Head Chef – K’s favorite activity allowed her to design her very own apron using fabric crayons. The best part about the fabric crayons is that they wash right out until set with heat (ironed by mom), so there was no worry about getting it on her clothing.
- Cookbook – This was a simple activity that K could do 100% on her own, while mom ironed her apron. It was a little booklet for her to fill in a menu for the week with pictures of her favorite dishes and ingredients.
- Grocery Store – The final project involved using felt, string and a little stuffing to create felt fruit and then upcycling the cardboard box into a cash register. Using play money included with the kit, K and I took turns buying and selling the fruit she made.
We both had fun creating together with the Wummelbox. The projects were fun, engaging and educational. Designed for children ages 3-8, they were just right for my 5 year old. Some she was able to do solo, some needed a bit of help from mom. We are both looking forward to our second box arriving any day now.
