Weekend Box Club Review and Giveaway!!!

I was recently approached by Weekend Box Club, who asked if I would like to review one of their products. I will be totally honest, I had never heard of them before! When Ruby and I looked them up online, we were really impressed with what we saw and loved the concept; I said yes please right away, and Ruby started to get excited about what the postman would bring!


As you can probably tell by the name, Weekend Box Club provide fun little activity boxes for you and your children to enjoy together over a weekend. If you subscribe to Weekend Box Club, a new box will be delivered right to your door every fortnight, each box contains:

  • Something to Make
  • Something to Cook
  • Something to Explore
  • Something Green

The boxes are tailored for children between the ages of 4 and 6, and according to their website, each box costs £7.50 and has Free Delivery.


When Ruby saw the box she was really excited and was very keen to start on the activities.

All of the activities came in their own brightly coloured envelop which instantly fuelled our excitement.



The first activity we looked at was making 'green' savoury pancakes using the special herbs and spice mix provided.

Then there was the Sound Explorer activity sheets for us all to work through, where we had to match  sounds with pictures.

Next was the "Pot O' Gold Game" where you have to build a rainbow out of pipe cleaners and sit it in a pot. The aim of the game is to get as many gold coins into the pot under the rainbow as possible.



Even Phil got involved when it came to the science experiment where we made a voice box out of a balloon and some plastic straws. They even provided links to videos on YouTube explaining how to assemble, and the basic science behind the experiment.


Ruby particularly enjoyed assembling and decorating her "Rocking Spring Bird", which she made from cardboard, feathers and googly eyes.

 


Overall, I think the box is great! It is perfect if your a busy parent struggle to think of things to keep child entertained;the activities promote learning and creativity, and encourages parents to sit down and have fun with their children.

Given the quality of the product, I think it is great value for money; you get a new set of activities every fortnight, and the box contains everything needed to complete the activities, even glue! I also think it is fantastic to support small companies like this who are being creative and thinking outside of the box - no pun intended :-)
