Spring is here! Kind of! And with it returns our six-legged friends, BUGS! This month’s theme is Bug Scientist, and included in March’s package is this helpful information on bug sorting, and another card listing some fun bug facts.
On the reverse sides, they included a Bug Identification Key and some Activity Ideas. I was very pleased to see that one of the activities listed was OUTDOOR Bug Hunting! I hope the kids keep it outside!
I LOVE seeing a book in a child subscription box, and this one got great reviews on Amazon (http://smile.amazon.com/Caterpillars-Bugs-Butterflies-Take-Along-Guides/dp/1559716746)! This is Caterpillars, Bugs, and Butterflies: A Take-Along Guide by Mel Boring, illustrated by Linda Garrow.
Here’s a peek inside the book. It provides loads of information on all kinds of different creepy critters!
Bramble Box also included a net to catch various insects, some stickers, and a jar of plastic bugs to practice with! So fun!
This month Bramble Box included materials to make a craft. It’s a 2 in 1 Butterfly Bead Craft! No additional materials were required.
I am proud of my son for choosing to do the butterfly instead of the caterpillar. Butterflies are way more beautiful and special, even if they are kind of girly! I supposed he could have done both, but there was a googly eye involved with the caterpillar… I knew once he stuck that on, he would never disassemble it.
Verdict: I really like Bramble Box so far, and so does my seven-year-old! I think he really preferred this month’s box, too! They provide a lot of different activities and materials for a very reasonable price. This month’s theme and activities were a lot more educational than last month’s, and I hope they keep it up. As long as my son keeps the bugs outside the house, I am very happy with it!
