Mini Weekend Box review!
We were really excited to be asked to review the Mini Weekend Box from The Weekend Box Club. Like most kids I love getting post so was really excited to get home from football and find a package waiting for me!
The Mini Boxes contain two activities from a selection of four choices-
* Something to make
* Something to bake
* Something to explore
* Something green
The mini Box was perfect for one child to do the activities with a little help but we used a bit of teamwork and did the activities between the two of us and still really enjoyed it. At just £4.95 a box though it wouldn’t be impossible for each of us to have one in the future or we can upgrade to the bumper box which has four different activities for £7.50.
We had a parrot mask to make and for this project we had all the materials we needed (and enough left over to make a second mask). The people at The Weekend Box Club had literally thought of everything including the glue! The directions were really easy to follow but there was also space for you to add your own individual arty touches which was great when making more than one mask.
We really enjoyed trialing the Mini Weekend Box and would definitely look at ordering them again- the great thing is you can choose how often you have them and also stop them if you want a break or if you are going on holiday. I would love to try one with a baking activity next time as I would like to see how that comes delivered and what you can make but I really liked the activities we had and would recommend this for children age 4 upwards with adult help or 6 upwards to do more independently- although part of the fun for us was doing the activities together as a family.
Note from Mum
I was impressed with the boxes and found them to be very well organised, good fun and a really nice way to spend some time with the kids at the weekend- having the activities ready planned encourages you to make sure you set aside the time to enjoy them with the children rather than just vaguely planning to and then realising the weekend has slipped away yet again. Surprisingly -considering the fact that I am being especially frugal at the moment I do feel these are good value for money and will be looking to sign up for our own delivery which I know the kids will love.
