Curiosity Box August 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 is awesome!

They ship in a pretty flat box with the logo in the corner.

It is wrapped so pretty all the time!  Inside is a whole pile of things to do.

They have a tri-fold pamphlet that tells you all the stuff you need to know.  The theme this month is Movie Time!.  There are the instructions, plus bonus activities and facts to share.  They also tell you who the box sponsor is for that month.

Movie Star Necklace

For this one everything you need in is the bag.  You just thread the ribbon and peel and stick the pieces together.  Lately both girls have wanted to do crafts so we take turns doing each piece.

Movie Decoration Kit

This one opens up to one of those tissue fans.  The included the bottle of glue so you really don’t need anything else.  There is a small bag of movie related sequins to stick all over the cardboard.

You’re A Star Photo Frame

This is another one that requires only peel and stick so it’ll be quick.  I actually printed a few photos off the other day so we might even have something to stick into it.

Movie Bingo

Once again, everything you need was included.  You have to cut out the callers card squares so they sent scissors even.  You mark off your squares with the dry erase marker and decide on what pattern you want yourself.

Other Activities

The bonus items this month include a movie trivia sheet, pencil, notebook popcorn bag, and snack holder just like you’d get at the theatre.

The brand partner this month is Mabel’s Labels.  They included a 30 pack of waterproof labels so you can try them out.  This is the exact brand we use for labeling all of Bug’s items for school so I’m thrilled to get more.  These things are surprisingly pricey.

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.
