I am constantly searching for new and fun activities for the kiddos. That probably explains a bit of my love for Pinterest… When I first saw the BabbaBox I jumped at the chance to review one – it’s a great idea! Each month, a new box is sent to your home with a specific theme and kid-friendly activities. The box I was sent to review was a rainbow themed box. It included instructions and materials to have an entire unit on rainbows.
Inside the box we found a story book about rainbows, an umbrella, a prism with instructions and activities, coloring pages, bubbles, instructions and materials for pipe cleaner bubble wands, and the star activity – a white hat that becomes a rainbow hat.
In all honesty, the girls are probably still a bit too little for many of the BabbaBox activities (they are made specifically for ages 3-6) but Bo was the perfect age and loved it. It was a great way to sneak a bit of learning into our crazy summer and it provided me with several projects that I didn’t have to hunt the aisles of Hobby Lobby for the right materials, click on Pinterest for instructions, etc.
My one complaint is that the box is made for one child – it would be nice to be able customize the box for more than one child. For example, I wouldn’t need three prisms, or three sets of bubbles – but three sunhats would have been nice. I made copies of the coloring pages, but having those included for each child would also be a perk.
Overall, the BabbaBox is a great concept and I’d definitely be interested in the monthly boxes if anyone is interested in buying them for our family for Christmas. You can receive 20% off by using the coupon code SF33BTS!
