We were sent a lovely box of activities from the Weekend Box Club.
The Weekend Box club was set up in April of 2013 when it’s creator was unable to find something educational and creative as a gift for his nieces and nephews. The Weekend Box club offers a themed box of activities all set out for you and your child to enjoy and learn together. The box is small enough to fit through your letterbox yet full of exciting creative things, while also being environmentally friendly.
Our box was themed for Chinese New Year and contained four different activities coloured, red, green, blue and yellow.
The red activity was for making fortune cookies and required some further cooking ingredients which I was informed of by e-mail before the arrival of the box. We really enjoyed making these and you can read all about it on our Kids in the Kitchen Post.
The green activity was to make a Chinese Lantern and Boo was keen to have a go at this. We needed to add a toilet roll middle which Boo painted with the glitter paint provided in the pack. There was also some paper to make the handle with and some glue spots to stick the handle onto the lantern. The instructions said to cut slits into the lantern but Boo didn’t want me to do this, so we just left it as it was.
