There is another new subscription box out for children aged 3 years and over. The children’s clubs offer 3 individual subscriptions. The main one being The Children’s club and the others are Dinosaurs for children and the brand new one set to launch soon is Conservation for children. The boxes cost between £10-£15 per month depending on which you choose and are tailored to the specific age of the receiving child.
The box comes with the first months subscription, subsequent subscriptions are sent in packages and children can store the contents in their boxes.
The boxes come packed with educational and fun activities which cover the main subjects of maths, English and Science with art and fun thrown in. The subscriptions always come with something to make or create along with age specific work sheets, fun activities and stationery items such as pens, crayons, paint, card etc.
This is Izebellas box, which was the first to be opened.
I never know what to expect or what I will find inside subscription boxes and I do recieve a good fair few of them. I was quite surprised in a good way by the contents of these boxes. For just £10 it’s enough to keep her busy for a long time.
Each activity in the box is designed to take approximately 15 minutes per day and the boxes come with enough activities to do 2 or more per day for a month. Or if your kids are really eager they could do them much faster but it’s better to space them out.
These are the activity sheets. There are many more than four, these are just to show some examples.
As you can hopefully see, activities such as making a clown and joining letters are more than suitable for a 4 year old and help her learn more whilst at home.
Jordanna also received her own box from Children’s club. Jordanna’s activities were more age advanced and more appropiate for a 9 year old.
Jordanna’s activities included crosswords, joke pages and activities such as morse code and times table.
Both girls received a window suncatcher which when coloured look really good hung up on a window.
To keep a track of all the activities and the ones they complete, they both have a large poster each. Each one has 90 numbered squares to mark off as they complete.
Ryan received the Conservation for kids box. This box is brand new and I hear it’s launching some time this week or next.
“Conservation is the protection of things found in nature. It requires the sensible use of all Earth’s natural resources: water, soil, minerals, wildlife, and forests”
The conservation box helps to teach children about the world around them and how to try and protect it. This includes learning about animals, plants, water, rocks etc with activities to encourage children to get out and explore a bit more.
Ryan’s box included a bird box to paint and decorate which he actually enjoyed doing.
Also a bug catcher/viewer which he seems http://thechildrensclubs.com/to like too. It gives him an excuse to go out and find bugs to view instead of just sitting in playing video games.
He also got a few things to make and a few work sheets which he seems quite happy to do.
These boxes seem worth the £10 per month. They include enough activities to keep kids learning in a fun way and also give children something to make and keep. Paints, pencils, crayons are supplied too. As you can see the boxes differ depending on age so there won’t be anything too difficult or far to easy for a child.
