Curiosity Box January 2017

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, or 12-monthplans.  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 is included!  In the monthly plans they include, in the months published, a copy of Parent’s Canada magazine.  I had been looking to replace the craft one I was getting for Bug so finding one and a Canadian one to boot is awesome!

 

The box is full of everything you need to make a bunch of crafts and a few bonus items to keep your kids entertained on those snow days.

They have an instruction sheet that details all the crafts and activities that are included for the month.  It also has facts about the theme, which this month is Winter Wonderland.

For some reason, I find this creepy.  It must be the face that they add to the centre that makes it wrong.  The craft is one of the harder ones for my aged girls to master with needing to make a glaze out of the glue but I think we can manage somehow.

It’s hard to see in this picture but it has a banner across the top and then snowflakes and a snowman that hang down.  The most difficult part will be hanging the stuff from the strings.

This is so cute!  It gives you up to a nine-inch snowfall measure.  You get to add little arms and a scarf to make it awesome!

This is the activity for the month.  You cut out the noses and try to stick them as close to where they belong as you can.

Other things included this month are Build A Snowman stickers, a connect four game, a clapper, crayons, balloon, and scissors to cut out paper snowflakes.

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.
