I’m a lot of things, but crafty isn’t one of them. I have visions of coming up with all kinds of cool things to do with my babies. I even have craft boxes full of paints, crayons, markers, etc. For the most part though, I leave the crafting to the pros.
Then I was offered the chance to check out Wummelbox…
Straight from the heart of Berlin – the ultimate hub of creativity and style – comesWummelbox, a subscription arts & crafts service just for kids age 3-8. Each high-quality Wummelbox contains 3-4 themed-based projects (i.e., “Nutrition,” “Music,” or “Color and Light”) and is designed to inspire children to learn and explore the world around them.
Each Wummelbox contains everything needed to immediately begin crafting, and all items meet the highest European and US standards for toys. Even better: Wummelbox takes the extra step to use eco-friendly and style-conscience materials whenever possible (i.e. recycling of the packaging, reforested wood, material like cork and sand, etc.) for a crafting kit parents – and kids – can feel good about.
In a unique twist,the box actually becomes a part of the craft in many of the kits! In addition, each craft is carefully thought out to be used over and over (e.g. sewing felt fruit for a cash register or creating a windchime and drum for musical enjoyment.)
My son LOVES activities. I’m always trying to find/make up stuff to do with him. This box of goodies was perfect! I was impressed with how much was in the box. There were safety scissors for my son to use and paints. There were about 4 crafts in our box. That’s enough to keep us busy for a while. I figure I’ll just space out each activity – even though he wanted to do them all at once!
Each box has a theme. Ours was time travel. We started with making a time machine. I had to explain the whole idea of a time machine to my little boy. That just made it even more fun. He kept calling it his washing machine. After a while he got the hang of it.
He really likes painting and kept telling me he was making it “beauteeful”.
He’s also a sticker fanatic. I turned my back and he had started putting stickers on random pieces. He told me he got “so excited”. So after we peeled them off the wheels… we put the wheels in place and then the stickers.
This is our finished time machine!
It a fun project for both of us. We did it right before dinner and had to stop to let the paint dry and to eat. He didn’t want to stop to eat at first. Then, I guess his tummy told him differently and he was game for a little break.
I love that every thing you need is included in the box. It makes craft time easy. There’s no need to spend time researching things to do or making a lis tof things to get at the craft store. It’s all done for you. Can’t be mad at that.
The Wummelbox subscription starts at 19.95 a month. The box I have is valued at 34.95.
