My kiddos have been off visiting grandparents for a few weeks but I was able to sneak in a couple of fun Summer Bucket List items over the weekend between trips. One thing that we always love to do is crafts. I have always been a crafter and I have passed that onto my kiddos. I recently found this great box subscription for craft lovers called Box of Crafts. Each month you will get a box with some really fun and kid-friendly crafts. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a day of crafting with your kids and every month is a new box with new crafts.
Box of Crafts is a box subscription so you can sign up for several months. Each month they send out a new box full of fun crafts to do. They include everything you need to complete each craft aside from simple things like glue, tape, scissors, etc. In our July box (pictured above) we had four fun crafts. My daughter loved doing them all and it was a great way to spend an evening with her while checking off something she wanted to do on our summer bucket list.
The first craft we did was a craft stick harmonica. It was really easy to put together, my 8-year-old had no problems with it. She has been playing this thing non-stop. Honestly, I sent this with her on her trip to Texas to grandma’s and I’m kinda hoping that it might stay there. However, it was really fun to make.
Next, we made the Ispy game. It was really easy to make as well. All the crafts seem to be simple and easy enough for kiddos to do on their own. Simply pour the items into the rice bag. She used glue to make the Ispy card. Then it was game on trying to find all the items in the rice. It made a really fun travel game for her next trip too.
Next, we made a really fun kite out of really colorful papers and ribbons. It was fun building it. She did need a little help with this one but we had fun with it. Flying a kite is also on her bucket list so this was great. When we do our kites we plan to bring this one along and do a little science experiement to see which ones fly better. Should be really fun.
Finally, we made some straw rockets. These were really simple. Just make some rockets out of the fun colorful paper they sent. Use the straws to shoot them across the room or at each other which is what my child did with them. They were simple but was her favorite craft from the entire box.
Box of Crafts was nice enough to send us an extra box to giveaway to one of our readers. One winner will win a Box of Crafts box featuring these crafts pictured in this post. Entrants must be 18 or older and US residents to be eligible to win. Entries will be accepted until 8/15/17.
