CJ received a rockin birthday gift from his Auntie Kate! Mommy being a teacher, really appreciated the education value of the gift, especially over the course of the summer. (Truly inside I cheered “Yay!!! Not another toy!!!) My boys have more than enough toys and I rather much have educational stuff or things that can be used more than once, such as memberships. So this gift was the best of both worlds to me – reoccurring and educational! Woohoo!!!
My previous post showed how excited CJ was to get the box. I decided to wait until a rainy day to do the activities…helps make the chaos a little less chaotic. Needless to say, the weather this week has been wonderful each day, so we began by making the Moon Night Light! Not much of a night light in the end, but still a rockin activity that CJ loved!!!
The activity came with all the needed materials and great directions! It truly made it easy for any parent or caregiver to do with their child or children. I loved it too!!
I strongly recommend Babba Box Co. to anyone for any gift for a child ages 3-6!!!! They ROCK! This is something I will definitely be gifting in the future. Mom’s take note!
Day 1: Day one started with making the shape for the moon and applying one layer of paper mache and then letting it dry over night. CJ would have loved to do both in one day, but this helped stretch out the activity to get the most out of it. He was eager to learn about it, but didn’t like the part where you suidgy off the excess glue. This is where I came in handy. During this time it was super easy to keep Calvin occupied by his Melissa and Doug first wooden bead maze. Day 1 was a success!
Day 2: Day 2 required a second coat of the paper mache. CJ eagerly did this until we ended up with a strong second layer. Calvin was kept occupied by his snack time!
Day 3: Day 3 consisted of simply putting the work all together to create the night light. It came out awesome, but for a 4 year old it doesn’t give off enough light to truly make it a good night light for a room. Still something totally awesome to do with your child about the Moon. We talked about how the moon is shaped, the material it’s made out of, the craters on the surface and how it’s not smooth…it was just a great educational activity that was lots of fun too! CJ was eager to go in the bathroom with the lights out to really see what he created during the day!!!
I was not paid for this review and these are my own opinions.
