Curiosity Box May 2016

Curiosity Box is a Canadian monthly subscription that sends out craft and activity boxes for children 3-7.  They hope to inspire curiosity and creativity in kids and help families have quality time together.  You can buy single boxes or 3,6,and 12 month plans.  You can also get Curiosity Kits that are made for birthday parties, homeschooling or daycare groups.  Single boxes start at $26.55 and plans begin at $26.50/month and go down with longer subscriptions.  Shipping within Canada in included!  In the monthly plans they include an item from their current partner and in the months published, a copy of Parent’s Canada magazine.  I have been looking to replace the craft one I was getting for Bug so finding one and a Canadian one to boot os awesome!

Not much is able to be told from opening the box.  Neatly wrapped up and held with a sticker.

Opening that showed me way more of the fun inside.

The fold out flyer tells you the theme for the month, Yee-Haw, along with instructions for the crafts.  There are also other activity ideas and fun facts relating to the items and theme.

This is a Cowboy Scene Tissue Paper Kit.  You have to punch out parts of the black foam and layer tissue paper squares over to create a stained glass look.  This is a bit more advanced for Bug but we will give it a try maybe one rainy day.

Foam Sherriff’s Badge

This will be a quick and easy one to get done.  Bug really enjoys playing dress up so I think she will be happy to wear this once done.

Ranch Door Knob Hanger Kit

We have made a bunch of different door hangers and they always are fun.  This one has a horse wearing a hat and should provide giggles.

Cowboy Boot Spur Toss Game

The blue item on the right is a paper bag that you decorate with the boot foam cutouts.  You then toss “spurs” in to bag and most in wins.  The bandana patterned thing is a slap bracelet for dress up.

There are also a few activity sheets to do.

This bag has some of the other items you need to complete the crafts.  There is glue, a cotton ball, the balls (spurs), and a plastic cup.  There is also a notepad and pack of crayons.

As I mentioned in the intro, if it’s a month where the magazine is published, they nclude one.

I think this is going to be a good box for Bug.  She loves these kind of crafts, and I like that most are simple and quick enough to do before bed or supper.  The crafts seem to be coming from Oriental Trading and I’m fine with that because I would totally be ordering from there myself if I could figure out hat to do with the 17 other packages of the same crafts you need to buy at once.  The instructions are clear and the additional activities don’t require crazy supplies no one would have.  I am grateful to find any Canadian boxes and am glad to support them.  If you want to join this one, send me a message and I can give you a code for a discount off a 3 month plan.
