This month’s theme is World Traveler!
We are awash with maps thanks to subscription boxes, but I like that this one is rolled up and portable. The box this month has a handle so my seven-year-old son can keep all his goodies in his suitcase now! I’m imagining him in his business suit at the airport unrolling this map to see where he should go next!
Other items for his suitcase include his passport and plane tickets, plus a sheet of passport stamp stickers. It is cracking me up that one of the stickers says, “DEPORTED”! My poor baby! Bramble Box does a really nice job with these play props.
Hmmm… How much fun can a coloring book of the United States be?
The answer is: TONS! Honestly, Im a little obsessed with this coloring book. It’s become my most-referenced reference book lately! The kids are not that into it, though.
Bramble Box is not usually chock full of crafts, but this month they have included three crafts to help teach about world cultures. Luckily, my seven-year-old is really into crafting! These are the instructions for the crafts from Mexico and Germany. On the reverse are the instructions for the Japanese craft plus one of the supplies needed.
These are the materials supplied to make the crafts. The only thing we had to provide was scissors. They included enough supplies to make two of each craft!
This is my son’s completed paper plate maraca from Mexico! What I am really more impressed with than anything is how great his drawing is here. He can draw a monster like a pro!
This little Alpine hat cracked me up completely. It even has a little feather! Unfortunately it wouldn’t stay on his head.
This is his completed wind sock from Japan! It turned out really pretty!
Bramble Box also included these stickers to put on his suitcase after he completed all the crafts. Very cute!
The verdict: This month’s Bramble Box was a blast! (Well, the coloring book got a mixed verdict.) I actually think Bramble Box is getting better and better every month!
