Sassy Kids Box Review
Bella was sent a Sassy Kids Box last week to try, which was perfect timing for the Easter holidays! The weather at the start of the Easter holidays was really iffy and Bella literally starts jumping off the walls if she’s stuck indoors all day long. The Sassy Kids Box provided some much needed entertainment for a drizzly afternoon!
Once Reuben went down for his afternoon nap and I knew me and Bella had at least a good hour to ourselves I presented Bella with her Sassy Kids Box. Oooooh! Bella was absolutely delighted with the box (addressed to her making it even more amazing) and wanted to rip it open right away and get stuck in!
The Sassy Kids Box is created by the very same team who create the award winning baby subscription boxes called Sassy Bloom. Their customers felt sad when these boxes stopped as their children reached two years old and wanted a new box they could enjoy with their older children. The Sassy Kids Box was born. It’s a letterbox sized craft box with everything you need to complete a fun crafty task with your child aged between 3 and 8 years old. There’s a main task, a bonus task, challenges, a family game and more. The box provides everything you need to spend some fun quality time with your child, children or whole family!
The box we received was full of popcorn games! There was a bag of kernels for us to make a bowl of popcorn. I was a little worried at first as I’d only made popcorn in a microwave before and we don’t have one, but the popcorn could be heated in a pan with a little oil (who knew!). It was the very first time I’d made popcorn this way and I was probably as excited as Bella to see it pop! I mixed a tablesppon of oil in with the popcorn, put the pan on a medium heat with a lid fitted and waited. It took a few minutes and then POP POP POP! I probably should have waited a little longer as most weren’t totally popped, but some of them were burning a little! Perhaps I needed more oil. Bella really wanted to eat it, even though it didn’t look that appetising due to my poor cooking, but I had to persuade her not to as we needed the popcorn for all the crafty tasks.
There was a list of ten fun Popcorn Olympics games. We had great fun playing these together and Bella, of course, was the winner! The games included throwing popcorn as far as possible, which Bella actually did win. Who knew it was so hard to throw popcorn? Mine was like a boomerang and kept coming back a bit! Another game was to blow the popcorn from one end of the table to the other with a straw. They were the type of games any child from 3 to 8 really would have fun playing. As Bella won, she got the medal which was included in the box! Of course, she was super chuffed with her winner medal.
Once the Popcorn Olympics were over I cut Bella a sheep out of the black card and she had great fun gluing popcorn all over as the sheep’s wool! We already had a big pack of googly eyes so Bella stuck these on to bring her sheep to life! The sheep looks great and is now proudly pegged to our fridge. There was also a colouring in sheet which was enjoyed, because which child doesn’t love colouring in? Colouring in (and sticking) is always a winner in our household with a bored child! Plus, there were even some activity sheets to complete. There was a good couple of hours of activities included and the ‘Olympics’ could even be completed a few times or with different family members!
Bella had a great time completing all the tasks in her Sassy Box and we enjoyed the quality time we spent together. It was a real joy to see her so excited about the box and spending time playing together just the two of us. The box makes everything super easy by providing almost everything you need. Anything you need to provide yourself will be things you already own, such as a cup, bowl or saucepan. Children find it so exciting getting post and even more so when the post is actually addressed to them. The subscriptions are only £3.99 plus 99p delivery for a fortnightly box and I’d certainly recommend them.
