We’ve talked before about how NOT crafty I am. It just isn’t in my genes, people. But I have a 3 1/2 year old who loves to work on projects and try new things and just spend quality time with mommy and daddy.
Thank goodness for companies like Wummelbox.
See all this? This is everything I need to create some games, do some crafts and engage in some really creative and fun learning with my preschooler. It came with crystal-clear instructions straight to my front door. No anxiety-filled trips to Michael’s for this gal!
Wummelbox offers European-style arts & crafts ideas, with each box containing 3-4 projects that fit within a theme. I received a box all about time travel.
I really appreciate that the materials that came in this box are all made to the highest European and U.S. standards for toys, and eco-friendly materials are given top priority, being used whenever possible. I have no worries about Darah playing with everything in the box, or with Layah getting her little hands on stuff, either!
Darah opted to play the hunter & gatherer game first, which required her to paint a Wooly Mammoth and to cut out some animal tracks!
Darah worked on her motor skills as she cut the fabric (of note: the scissors that were included int he package just weren’t “cut out for” the fabric, sorry to say. Had to go with a more grown up pair and more careful adult supervision). The game also had some great language and movement development opportunities built into it.
I also appreciate the intentionality behind each activity, as I learned that they are each designed by early childhood educators, parents and designers. Later this month we’ll also tackle the other cool activities in this box, including building a time machine and creating a cave painting. The subscription service is available for $34.95/month, but the deal is REALLY good if you go for a year subscription, in which case you only pay $19.95/month! I would order this again now that I have seen it first hand, and would definitely recommend it!
Plenty of use can be had out of the crafts, as they are all designed to be used again and again. So they aren’t just one-time craft projects! You can order a Wummelbox here, and also keep up with the latest news on the Wummelbox Facebook page.
If you aren’t crafty, what have been your “work-arounds” with your young kids? Any tips to share???
I received a complimentary box for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are strictly my own.
