Way back in the early days of my blogging journey, I think even around 2 years ago, we received a Weekend Box to review. We loved it, in fact we loved it so much I ended up getting Olivia subscription as a birthday present (click here to read our first review) This month we received one of their mini boxes. This was something that wasn’t available when we first subscribed, so let me tell you a bit little bit about the boxes.
Weekend Box are a subscription based activity box for children aged around 3-9. You can set your subscription level to suit your lifestyle or budget opting for either the mini box, which we reviewed, or the regular one.
A mini box is a fortnightly box containing 2 activities randomly chosen from the either the MAKE, BAKE, EXPLORE AND MORE categories priced at £4.95 per box.
The regular box contains 4 activities one from each category and costs £7.95 per box and can be delivered either fortnightly or monthly.
Both subscriptions can be paused or cancelled at any time and all boxes are letterbox sized so no worrying about having to retrieve it from the post office if you are out!
Now for our review.
Olivia still loved it! She is a fan of all things crafty and this is something that really appeals to her. The crafts are easy to do, easier the better for me, and pretty much everything you need is included in the box so you can get started straight away. Our activities included making a mask and a rainforest in a bottle, all we needed was a bottle for the rainforest. You get full instructions, easy to follow steps, even I could help!
What I really like about these boxes is that pretty much everything is included and instructions are simple to follow with pictures too so you can see it visually step by step as you progress. They really are great for the rubbish weather we have been having lately when chances are you will be stuck in quite a lot! For younger kids they will need more help with some activities eg we had to cut a bottle in half to make our rainforest but with Olivia being older now she happily got stuck in on her own.
They are really thorough with the activities and all the added extras included like stickers for completing each craft, a box you can colour in too and the chance to win prizes by sending pictures of your creations in to the Weekend Box Team!
If you fancy trying one out for yourself or as a present, these make great birthday presents! Simply pop over to Weekend Box Club and enter this code TRACEY129 to get your first one for free.
