We Craft Box July 2018 Review
The box included some information on sharing your creations on social media for a chance to win a free box.
Included on our instruction sheet was a story about llamas and how much they love lollipops. While I think you are supposed to read the story beforehand, we read it afterward since my 3-year-old daughter is a bit too impatient to pay attention when such crafting excitement is before her! This was still fun to read afterward since she was even slightly more engaged having made her own llamas and lollipops to go along with the story.
The directions were so clear and easy to follow. They included colored pictures that we were able to use for reference as we worked and since they each took up a 1/4 of the entire page we could fold them up and focus on just one craft at a time.
General’s Pastel Chalk Pencil – Buy 2 for $4.99
Our first step in our craft was to design and decorate our very own llamas. These are all of the materials we needed to get started with our llamas. The only supply we needed from home was our scissors. I love that the llamas were already cut out and ready to decorate. No time-consuming tracing or cutting!
Wikki Stix Rainbow Pak of 24 – Retail Value $5.25
Wikki Stix are one of our favorite art materials so my daughter and I were both happy to see these in our box and we ended up using them for a lot of different purposes in our crafts!
Our first step was to cut our wax sticks into smaller pieces so that we could start applying them to our llama and make different patterns and designs.
After adding our wax designs, we then used the pastel chalk pencil to add more detail to our llamas.
They gave us instructions for how to apply the wax sticks to the hooves and back of our llama legs to make them stand up.
Here are our llamas all complete and standing up, ready to enter lollipop hills.
Model Magic 2- 1 oz. packs – Buy a 4 oz. pack for $3.49
Our next step was to make our lollipops. These are all of the materials that we were given to make them with. We used the rest of our Wikki Stix and also added in some Model Magic this time.
We twisted two different colored wax sticks together and then rolled them up into spiral shapes to form our lollipops.
Then we stuck them to the little popsicle sticks that they sent and I think they looked adorable!
We received two packets of Model Magic, one yellow and one white. To make our Model Magic lollipops, we first rolled out the material into long snakes.
Then we twisted our two different colored snakes together and rolled them into a spiral for our lollipops.
Our lollipops turned out great! Although our little sticks were hard to insert without smooshing them up a little bit.
I love that they usually have us use the box for our creative scenes. Such a great way to recycle it! The first step was to cut off the top of the box and then use the base which already had the paper lined in the bottom. I forgot to get some pictures because we were so busy working, but then we drew our hills on the larger sheet and cut them out.
I used the wax sticks to try and stick the finished hills to the box like they recommended, but I ended up just breaking out the tape since the paper wouldn’t stick like I wanted it to.
Here are our llamas in our scene complete with rolling hills and lollipops everywhere.
The last step was to set up our hot air balloon, which was really easy. I inserted the metal piece to expand the globe.
Then I added some small wax sticks to help keep the basket of our balloon open.
We set our little llama in the basket so he was ready to take a ride.
They included this colorful yarn to tie around the top and this tiny suction cup with a hook so that we can hang our hot air balloon up.
Here is our finished scene with our littlest llama riding high above the rest over the top of our lollipop hills. Super cute!
Verdict: This month was a really fun We Craft Box for my daughter and me to complete together. The whimsical theme of llamas and lollipops was cute, creative and colorful. I enjoyed that it included a story to go along with it and that all of the crafts came together to make one large scene. The directions were very clear and easy to follow with lots of pictures for reference. I also love that they used two great art products, Model Magic and Wikki Stix which we always enjoy working with. This was fun for a younger kid like my daughter to do with some adult help, but an older child might have some fun being creative all on their own and could probably complete this with very little assistance. I think that given the art mediums we used would make the simple project more interesting to those older children. Overall, I’d say this was a great box for $24.95 + free shipping. Having everything planned out and put together for us allowed for a stress-free experience that let me just enjoy spending time being creative with my daughter.
