My kids love packaging of all sorts — cardboard boxes, styrofoam, fillers, paper invites, folders, etc. Ever since Sophia was big enough to handle paper (without putting it in her mouth) I let her play with scrap materials. She must have been a bit over one then. And as she grew older, she used scissors, glue, paint and anything she could find in the house to jazz up her cardboard boxes. Naturally, Lily and Stella took after their Ate. Every day I see them working on crafts and experiments.
Enter the new product Sandbox. It encourages imagination and creativity in children. Sandbox is a monthly subscription box filled with activities. Think, beauty/cosmetic boxes sent to your home but filled with arts, crafts and science projects for kids. The target age group is 3-7 years old. When Sandbox wrote to me about their new product, I knew right away that my kids would love them. Stella couldn’t wait to get her projects started.
Jump to the bottom of this post to join the Sandbox raffle.
The first project Stella and I did was this toy aquarium. All materials were given inside the box except for water and glue. I like that the activities encourage the connection between parents & children.
To sign up for Sandbox monthly membership boxes, go here. You have the option of signing up for just one month, or go for the three or six month subscription.
Stella loved her Sandbox so much, I wanted to share this experience with your children. Please join this giveaway. Sandbox is raffling off five Sandboxes for November. Open to anyone with a Philippine address.
Giveaway is open now until October 22, 2013. Good luck!
