Our Subscription Box KIDS Favorites for January 2021!
Welcome to our monthly post highlighting our favorite discoveries in a new category: KIDS subscription boxes! Here are our favorite children’s books, kids clothing items, art projects, and more from the past month:
The Item: Foldable Snack Cup from Gray Haven
The Cost: $15.99
From: Small Shop Baby Box
Why I love it: Snack cups like this are amazing. It’s silicone so it’s bendy and flexible, and collapses when it’s empty. These are perfect for the car or grocery shopping or something! It works well for your kid to have a spill-proof way of holding their own snacks. I especially like that this one has a lid! This way, crumbs don’t fall into your purse or bag. I will say that it’s not easy to pour snacks in — you kind of have to hold the top open with one hand and pour the snack in with the other, or you have to push the snacks in. We’ve used this a lot!
The Item: The entire Green Kid Crafts Box – “Color Science”
The Cost: $29.95
COUPON: Save $20 Back to School 3-Packs Sale. No coupon needed - just use this link.
Why I love it: 2 words: Jelly Marbles!! This month we explored the science of colors through an array of experiments using jelly marbles and colored dyes. We had a blast mixing, observing, and playing, all while learning. If you haven’t seen those jelly marbles in action, you need to get some….they are amazing for sensory bins for kids and adults alike!
The Item: Heads Talk Tails Walk
The Cost: $15.99
From: Sensory Theraplay
Why I love it: This game is really silly and a lot of fun. It can be played with just about any age and the concept is great as far as a cabin fever-buster! There are large cards featuring the bodies of various animals with smaller cards featuring the heads. You place the large cards face up in the center and then spread the smaller cards face down around them. You take turns picking an outer card trying to match the center card and if it’s not a match, everyone has to walk around the way the animal on the card would while making the sounds that the animal head would. It’s a goofy way to get moving and have some fun!
The Item: A Big Mooncake for Little Star by Grace Lin
The Cost: Retail value $18.99 (found on sale here for $11.59)
Why I Love It: My daughter’s imagination has been set on fire by this book! Not only is some of the playful, question-and-answer style text really fun for her as we read the book together, but she also loves heading to her play kitchen and pretending to make her own mooncakes and putting them up in the sky.
