Having Fun with a Mini Weekend Box

In the RaisieBay household we love The Weekend Box Club, we reviewed our first box here way back in 2014. You can see the fun we had for the Chinese New Year last year here.

Now, we are really excited to bring to you the all new Mini Weekend Box. After finding that many customers were finding it difficult to fit in all five activities provided in the regular Weekend Box it was decided to produce a smaller box with only two activities. It’s also a smaller price at only £4.95.

Weekend Boxes are full of creative activities but still fit through your letterbox. They can be themed around topical events like Mother’s Day or Easter, or exploratory topics like countries or insects. The one we received was themed on the rain forest.

Weekend boxes are always a joy to receive, addressed to your child the box is inviting and colourful. On opening you are presented with coloured envelopes which contain most of the things you need to do the activity described on the same colour card. For example, the green envelope in our box contained what we needed to do the rainforest activity on the green card. We also had a blue envelope with contained what we needed to do on the blue activity card which was to make a parrot make. All we had to provide were scissors and a plastic bottle for the rainforest.

My girls were keen to get started. Boo chose the parrot mask activity and found the instructions clear and easy to follow and got on with the activity mostly by herself. All I had to do was help her cut out the eyes and attach the elastic. I think she did a really good job and she was happy with her mask.

My older daughter, Star needed a little help with her rainforest activity. I had to cut the bottle for her, make a hole in the lid and feed the string through. She read through the instructions herself and managed to rehydrate the soil, plant the seeds and put the bottle together as instructed. She also really enjoyed the activity and is (im)patiently waiting for the seeds to grow.

I think the Mini Weekend Box offers great value and for busy parents it allows you to do activities with your children that you wouldn’t normally think of or have the time or resources for.

If you are interested in joining the Weekend Box Club then you can get your first box for free by quoting ANNE58.
Further boxes will be charged at £4.95 for the Mini Weekend Box and £7.50 for the Bumper Box (5 activites) You can pause or cancel boxes at any time.

What are you waiting for? You could be enjoying activities with your kids like this next weekend for free!

Disclosure: I was sent this Mini Weekend Box for free in return for my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
