Curiosity Box September 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!

This box ships out in a flat box with their logo on the corner.

They make the package look very nice each month. Under the wrapping is a fully packed box.  The theme this month is Apple Orchard Fun.

They have a tri-fold pamphlet that tells you how to do your crafts, bonus activities, and fun facts based on the theme.

Apple Tissue Paper Craft Kit

For this one you are making a stained glass like ornament.  Everything you need but a few drops of water was included.  They send out a bottle of glue each month if required so we are getting a few on hand, which is great.  This craft will be a little more difficult then some of the others we’ve done but it’ll be good for a day off school.

Fall Apple Magnet Craft Kit

This is a simple one that you just peel and stick foam pieces together and add a magnet on the back.

Apple Orchard Necklace

These are good kits to work on fine motor skills.  We have one for almost every season at this point so it’s fun and both girls like wearing them.

Apple Toss Target Game

You get to colour in the page first and then toss the apples onto it to score.  The apples are actually erasers so when we get tired of the game we can still make use of them.

The bonus activities and items this month are a word search, which Bug has really started to enjoy doing, a notepad, bracelet, straw, and lacing craft.

This is one of the months with the magazine included.

They also include some advertising for home based businesses, which I don’t really agree with, but I’m guessing they get a bit of commission on them so it helps them out.

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.
