We have tried the Weekend Box before, but they now do a new type of box, The Mini Weekend Box. The original bumper box has 4 activities, while the Mini box has 2 activities. The theme of the box we received was ‘Rainforest’ and the two activity’s where to make a mini rainforest in a plastic bottle and make a parrot mask.
The boxes themselves have been re-designed and are now very bright and cheerful
The boxes contain everything you need to make the activities, if you do need something of your own, it is clearly listed on the instruction sheets.
First up we did our rainforest. The only thing extra that we need for this was an empty plastic drinks bottle and a pair of scissors. Everything else, even the soil, was included.
I helped Caitlin (6), to cut the plastic bottle in half, then she placed the soil in the bottle and added some water and mixed it up until it became wet soil
we planted the seeds in the soil and placed water in the bottom half of the bottle with a piece of string between the two, so the soil can drink the water. This is now in our dining room window and we are waiting for the seeds to grow.
Next up was our parrot mask. The only thing we needed for this was a pair of scissors. Caitlin, basically did this all on her own. The only thing I did was help her tie the elastic cord on.
Didn’t she do a great job!
The box also contains some stickers and fun facts on the sheets about the rainforest. And you can cut the inside of the box to make a certificate, He she is colouring it and then she wrote her name. She actually wrote her name in joined up writing which she has only just learned. And I am very proud of her, because even I struggle writing in cursive.
I really like these boxes, they are so much fun and really affordable too.
