I was recently contacted by TogetherBox to review one of their boxes and I jumped at the opportunity. TogetherBox is a great concept for busy families. Let’s face it – we all want to do fun things as a family, but sometimes we either just don’t have the time to research fun crafts and activities and then go out and buy the supplies or waste way too much time in the process. That’s the genius behind TogetherBox – they do all the ground work for you. You can sign up for a monthly subscription and a fun-filled box will show up on your doorstop every month. This box will be filled with fun and unique activities to do together as a family and includes EVERYTHING YOU NEED! Even me, being a crafty mom myself, found this to be amazing. With my husband and I both working full-time, the kids in school full-time, all their extracurriculars after school and all our other commitments, my free time is really declining. I still want to do fun things with the kids, but find I have less and less time to organize them. Receiving this box with the activities already planned out for me in an easy to read format (with pictures!) was amazing, but then to realize that the box includes everything you need to do the activities and I didn’t have to run out and get anything totally rocked!
Here’s the box we got to review:
The box we received was the “balloon box” and all the crafts and activities involved balloons in some shape or form.
You will receive a box based on the current climate of where you live. Being in Canada, they knew we were covered in several feet of snow this time of year, so we received a box full of fun inside activities. I will receive outside activity boxes for when the weather is nicer.
I immediately noticed the lovely activity book! This particular book had 4 activities all planned out with pictures of the steps. It is laminated and held together with a sturdy binder ring. There was also a sheet of “bonus” ideas based on the same theme if you want to continue with more activities on your own. This was great!
The first activity my kids wanted to dive into was the “balloon ninjas.” What little boy doesn’t want to do an activity with the word ninja in it, lol?! They tried to shoot marshmallows into the balloon ninja’s mouths for hours with their homemade marshmallow shooters. Both kids enjoyed this activity SO.MUCH!
Another activity that they thought was super cool was the water bottle water fountain. This was a fun little science experiment for the kids that was not only fun, but a great learning experience too. They loved seeing how the blown up balloon on top of the water bottle would make the fountain work. They also had fun with the food colouring tablets and watching the water turn from pink to purple by adding blue food coloring tablets!
