From an early age I have encouraged both Amelie and Charlie to be creative, they really enjoy getting crafty, messy and exploring nature. So when Willow & Wild Box got in touch to see if we wanted to review a box I was very happy to accept.
Willow & Wild Box is a subscription service aimed at 3 – 8 year olds. The boxes are an exciting Aladdin’s cave of crafts, outdoor fun, cooking and nature activities delivered direct to your door each month. I’ve not seen a box of this kind before and think it is a fab idea for encouraging children to grow seeds, learn new recipes, find out exciting facts and using their imaginations. But don’t be put off if you haven’t got a garden or an outdoor space as all of the plants and vegetables can be grown in containers on the windowsill.
Willow & Wild Box has an array of subscription services to suit everyone, the boxes are personalised with your child’s name, delivered free to your door and there is no commitment, you are free to cancel at anytime, boxes start from £12.99 a month.
So what was in our box? When the boxes arrived I was really impressed with the contents, all the craft materials etc were of an excellent quality, there was a cooking activity card, a craft activity booklet with step by step instructions that were easy to follow, grow your own raddish and snapdragon cards along with two packets of seeds and lots more.
The handy cards are vibrant in colour, extremely informative and really inviting for little explorers, Amelie couldn’t wait to get started. Both children are knowledgeable about bees and find them fascinating so they were very excited about planting the snapdragons. The crafts in the box are a great after school activity to keep little hands and minds busy, when the children had finished making worms and butterflies they decorated my house plant with them.
Would I recommend this subscription box to other parents? Yes, I think the materials and acitivities are good value for money, it is a fun and educational tool and most of all it got the children asking lots of questions which was brilliant.
