Over the weekend we tested out a CubbyKit. It’s a new service, and the idea is you subscribe to having a box of craft goodies delivered to your door every month for £19.99. I think what it actually delivers is a box full of ideas, so you as a parent haven’t got to do all the research and buying of products. Each box has a theme, and is age appropriate. Either 3-4 or 5-6. and has three craft activities included.
We received our box (addressed to Miss A and looks like a suitcase) who was very excited to be receiving mail. The theme this month is outer space. We received one craft ‘Mushy Martians’ which is a craft where you cook up play dough and then decorate and make it into Martians. All the instructions and materials were included. We added more eyes and pipe cleaners as we were only sent two, and there was lots of dough.
The girls had great fun, Miss N (9) was in charge of the mixology 😉 and both got their creative juices flowing making the Martians. I think they are supposed to be green, however the food colouring didn’t work in ours so we added pink, to make our family of Rose Martians.
We are a very crafty family, and I always have lots of craft materials, waiting to use. So though I was unsure about whether I would use this service. What I did find invaluable, is the inspiration that it delivers each month. I think playing with your children and having fun, is so beneficial to all the family!
