Weekend Box Club Review – Get The Family Together

A survey
commissioned by children’s activity provider Weekend Box Club, revealed that
88% of parents wished they had more quality time to spend with their children. A
third of UK parents have less than 10 hours a week to spend with their children.
Modern living and pressures dictate that finding quality time to spend together
is proving difficult.

Newcastle-based
Weekend Box Club creates and sends out activity boxes to subscribers’ filled
with two or four activities to enjoy together. The boxes are deliver on either
a fortnightly or monthly basis with a new theme each box.

Make, bake,
create and explore are all covered by the boxes, which aim to ensure time spent
by parents with children aged 3-8 is quality. The boxes can be used at home,
away or with friends. 

The boxes come
complete with activities and easy ‘how to’ sheets, for the parents and children
to follow together.

The box I received
is dinosaur themed which is perfect as the kids have been learning all about
dinosaurs in school recently!

Inside the box
you will find four colourful envelopes each holding its own activity. Also
included in our box was a glue stick and black pen. Each activity has been
given a duration time of 30 minutes to complete.
Activity 1 – Dino
Claws
 

In the envelope;
Two sheets of
green cardboard
Dinosaur Claw
template
Yellow claw stickers
Green ribbon

Inside the
booklet you will find the instructions for each activity.

My children couldn’t
wait to get started! My eldest set about cutting out the template whilst my
little boy drew around it onto the cardboard, then threading through the ribbon
onto each paw.

My son
especially loved these and had a good stomp around with them on!

Activity 2 –
Dino Hatchling

In the
envelope;
Green and
yellow paper
White card
Colourful pompoms
A split pin 

This activity
was definitely my daughter’s favourite! She enjoyed drawing the egg, sticking
on the dinosaur’s spikes and the pompoms. This activity is a cute one and they
thoroughly enjoyed opening the egg to reveal the baby dino!

Activity 3 –
Chomping Dinosaur Head

In the
envelope;
Dinosaur head
template
A peg
Red paper
Sticky label 

I wasn’t sure
this one would actually work, but to my surprise it actually worked really
well! Following the instructions my children coloured in the peg, cut out some
sharp teeth from the sticky label and stuck them onto the peg, we then drew
around the template onto the paper and cut it out gluing it onto the peg and
our dinosaur head was created! By squeezing the peg you can open and close his mouth making him roar!

Activity 4 –
Rise Crispie Cakes

In the
envelope;
Rice crispies

Chocolate buttons

Honey
Mini eggs
Cake cases 

We didn’t use
the cake cases that came with this activity as they were a bit squashed.

This is an enjoyable
activity allowing the kids to get their hands stuck in, however the 5 or 6 chocolate
buttons provided were nowhere near enough once melted to cover the rice
crispies, luckily we had some chocolate buttons in our cupboard which we added
to the mix.

The kids really
enjoyed mixing the chocolate and crispies together and spooning it into the
cases, and they enjoyed eating them once set!

I absolutely
love The Weekend Box Club. All of the activities were thoroughly enjoyable by
my children and myself. My children really were engrossed in every part of each
activity. I do find myself struggling to keep them entertained and these boxes
are just fab. I will definitely be buying some more.
