Curiosity Box March 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 was packed with lots of animal parts.  Which sounds creepy now that I’ve said it out loud.  Oh well.

They have a  tri-fold pamphlet that gives you all the instructions for your crafts, bonus activities, and fun facts based on the theme.

Safari Animal Masks

You need this craft kit and some glue, which they included but I didn’t photo.  It looks like we got a lion and this will be a super quick one that the girls will love to play with once it’s finished.

Safari Animal Visor Craft

Once again you need the kit and the glue.  There were three animals you might have received and we got the giraffe.  I think there’ll be a fight over this one.

Safari Animal Plate Craft Kit

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room…….sorry, I couldn’t resist 🙂  This cute guy has pre-glued pieces to stick onto the plate to make a hanging craft.

Safari Game

This is one of their activities instead of a craft.  They give you the game board, crayons, animals, and a die and you colour everything in before starting to play.  You just roll the die and move that many spaces around.

Safari Sticker Sheet

This is another activity, making your own safari scene.

The always throw in a few extras and this month we have a finger puppet, a parachuting lion, and a slide puzzle.

Bug loves this box.  She loves this kind of craft, 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 what 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 a3-monthh plan.
