Little Doers Craft and Activity Box Review

We were sent an amazing
craft box full to the brim with glitter, glue, paint powder, crepe paper,
feathers, activity sheets and so much more. 
I like that this box contained absolutely EVERYTHING I need for the boys
and I to do each activity. We were
doing the bow and arrows and it mentioned Blu-Tack I was worried we did not
have any (any we have youngest rolls into little balls calls them his “pets”
and then promptly loses them around the place!), but youngest noticed a little
pack, which even contained the Blu-Tack. 
I really cannot put in words how impressed I was with this. Nothing worse than having to stop an
activity midway through, when you realise your missing a key element – which I
would do often as I am a ditsy bubblehead!

The
help sheets are so clear and comprehensive; completing any given activity is a
breeze! Plus they are fun to do, each
activity seems well thought out so children use a range of crafting skills and
really get engaged in the process. I
think it is good a list of what is needed for each activity is included as
youngest was ever so excited that he ran off with little packets off glitter,
sequins and paint (leaving a little trail of yellow after him!!!). Luckily I could figure out what came with
each activity pack through the useful instruction sheets and match them back to
where they needed to be!

I
particularly like that each activity also comes with educational fact sheets
and colouring in sheets (possibly even the words for a song like we had). So there is plenty to do and learn in one
box. Given how much fun your children
will have £15 a month (which in the first month includes a painting apron, glue
spreader and paintbrush) seems a small price to pay for such a convenient way to
get crafting.

My boys also had the
opportunity to try out different textures, as card, wood, paper and foam were
all included in the box. You can tell
someone with a child has developed this box, because they have really
considered what works well. Beth the
creator and her son Milo have tested all the activities to make sure they will
be successful and manageable for young children.

When
it comes to a Welsh summer there are no guarantee’s that sunshine will actually
be involved, so it’s great to be stocked up with entertaining things to do
indoors if you cannot get your children outside. My youngest has quite a short attention span so it was really
helpful that shapes are pre-cut to save on time, otherwise I would feel like
pulling my own hair out by the end of it!

We
would give this box a gold medal!

You
can find out more at the website and order a box for yourself. The boxes come in toddler and
preschool/early years age categories so if your child is from 2 – 7 years they
will be well catered for with one of the two choices.
