I was really excited to be offered the opportunity to try the Wummelbox -a subscription craft box for kids! With one-year old twins, it can be difficult to get out with my 3 1/2 year old son, which means I'm always looking for new things to help keep him engaged and entertained.
The kits are designed for ages 3-8 and each box comes with all the ideas, instructions and materials that you need for four activities. The directions are easy to follow, complete with pictures. They make this so easy and fool-proof. I was able to take the box out and decide to to an activity on the spot. There was no planning or gathering materials, which really fits my lifestyle.
We received the box for review and while my son is on the younger side of the age range, he was able to complete all activities. He certainly needed my help and participation, but the concepts were not too difficult. I did have to tailor some of the ideas for him; for example, he didn't grasp the concept of a time machine. He understood we were making a machine for time travel, but may have not understood what time travel was. He did, however, enjoy painting the buttons and attaching them to the wooden board. It was unlike any other craft he had done before! For me, as a former teacher, I like that the activities work on so much - the concepts, fine motor skills, colors, following directions, sequencing...I could go on and on with all the skills that this box helps teach kids.
