Weekend Box & free box for my readers

It’s almost weekend again and that often means bored kiddies especially in the cold weather. It’s not that they don’t have enough toys either. Infact as my mother would say “they have too many things and are spoilt and don’t know what to do” well they both have tablets and gadgets but the novelty of their Christmas presents is starting to wear off.
We were asked if we would like to review a fairly new subscription service for kids called weekend box. The box is aimed at children between 3-8 years but also good for slightly older children too as Ryan is 9.
The boxes cost £7.50 and new ones come out to your door every two weeks.

There will always be 4 different activities in the box with instruction cards and the items you need carefully wrapped in individual packets.

The activities are
Something to Cook
Something to Make
Something to Explore and
Something Green
Each activity is designed to be fun and educational and children will learn something from each. The activities take a bit of time to complete hence why it’s named weekend box as they take up a few hours.
In our box this time was a Lolly Stick bird feeder (something green) the lolly sticks, glue and seed were all provided and full instructions too.

Ryan really enjoyed making the bird feeder and we are now eagerly awaiting to see what the birds think.

Our Something to make activity is 3D glasses. We were provided with a cut out sheet for the glasses

We found them slightly tricky to glue together and get the acetate correct but got their in the end.

We have not yet done out Something to eat activity which is potato boats but k have bought the things we need and hopefully making them soon. The potato boats will eventually look like this

Finally Something to explore is a sand art activity. Our pack contained coloured sand and glue to enable us to create some pretty sand art pictures. This is a little messy but quite fun. A sand art sheet is included too.
Weekend Box came about after the owner became frustrated when he was buying gifts for his young niece and nephew. He wanted to buy something educational and funWhen he couldn’t find anything he quit his job and started developed weekend box.
