Weekend box review

We were recently sent a box of goodies from the weekend box club, I actually saved it until the boys were at school and did it with Millie. The boxes are suitable for 4-8 years old, Millie is only three but with having two older brothers she is quite advanced. The activities were suited to her perfectly and she really enjoyed working the through the box and collecting the stickers after each activity.

It came in a little box that fit through the letterbox, its colourful and very eyecatching. 

The box is packed with little colour co-ordinated bags to each activity. They are each sealed with a sticker explaining whats inside the bag and which activity it is for. I really like the fact that they are sealed as children do tend to have a habit of getting everything out at once. It really ensured that nothing got mixed up.

The first one Millie wanted to do was the blue 'creative' activity. I wasn't surprised in the slightest, it looked fun and involved painting and cutting. The instructions were super easy to follow and nicely laid out. 

Everything was in the little blue bag that was needed. All I had to do was add water the the powder paint and find something to draw a circle around. Unfortunately though the glue that was provided was all dried up and we were unable to use it, luckily we had some in the cupboard though. Phew!

The finished result! She was so proud of her little bird and was really excited to show her brothers what she had made. I thought it was good and easy enough to make without much help at all.

We worked through the other activities including a sound sheet that helped you discuss and match up different sounds things make. We had lots of fun guessing which sounds we were each making. The sound sheet also provided you with links to a website where you could watch a video. I think this would be better for older kids and to be honest we didn't watch it.. it felt nice just to be in the kitchen without the laptop around. For this activity you were also provided with balloons and a straw to recreate a robot voice.

We quickly moved onto the next game 'The pot O gold game', we made it up which was super easy and started playing. This has been a huge hit in our house with all members of the family. In fact its still on the window sill and gets played with most days since its been out. All you have to do is see how many of the 6 coins (provided in the box) you can get under the pipe cleaner rainbow and in the mug.

The weekend box was really fun to complete and once the child has done all the activities they can fill in their very own poster with stickers and colour in their certificate, this was all part of the fun for Millie. The weekend box is delivered fortnightly and contains different things each time always following the same catergories of :Something to Cook, Explore, Make and Green
