Let’s see what’s in the September 2015 BaptuBox!
Everything was shipped in a flat white box with a BaptuBox logo on top.
A peek inside.
A full-color instruction booklet listed step-by-step, easy to follow directions for completing each craft.
Welcome Kit – When you sign up for BaptuBox, your first shipment will include a welcome kit with a pack of seven markers and a pair of kiddie scissors to use in future projects.
Frog Puppet – The first project was a frog puppet. The materials included 2 paper plates, 2 frog leg markings, 2 eyes, a red paper strip, green & red paint, craft tape, a foam brush, glue, and 2 plastic bowls.
We’ve never used foam brushes before, so Ev enjoyed trying out the new tool to paint the frog’s head (paper plate).
The inside of the frog’s mouth was painted red and she did a great job lining the outside with green. Unfortunately, since the paint had to dry for a bit we never did get to finish the puppet. His limbs and eyes are still patiently waiting to be attached. 😉
Giraffe Visor – Next up was a foam giraffe visor. Materials included assorted foam cut-outs, elastic thread, glue, and googly eyes.
This project was pretty straight-forward… Just glue the various shapes onto the foam visor to create a giraffe. At first I was a little skeptical that the glue would actually hold, but after reaffixing the ears a few time before it completely dried, all was well.
I wasn’t sure if Ev would want to glue every one of its spots on, but she did and it turned out really cute. As for trying it on? Nope. Wasn’t gonna happen.
Balancing Girl – Included for this project were a chipboard cutout, a cardboard cutout, a balancing bar, thread, washers, a double-sided sticker, and glue.
Evie applied the glue to attach the printed cutout to the chipboard and I helped position them straightly. She was honestly more interested in taking the cap on and off the glue bottle. 😉 Hey, she’s 3. Since she’s still a little young to have the patience to play with/understand how a balancing beam/weights work, we just used the girl as a plain ol’ paper doll.
While BaptuBox is designed for children 5 to 8 years old, we still had fun working on the featured projects, though I think some sort of theme would have made it a little more interesting. Also, I gotta say, it seems a little lacking for a $29.99/month box, but if you’d like to try it out your first box will only be $15 with coupon code “BOXFIRST“.
September 2015 BaptuBox Review
While I love trying out new craft boxes with my kids, this one seemed a bit lacking — especially for the monthly cost. I can see that they put a lot of work into the curation though, given the nice full-color booklet. I just wish there were more projects to justify the high price point.
