Just in time for spring planting, this month’s Bramble Box is all about gardening!
Bramble Box is a fun subscription box for children aged 3 through 8 years old. Unlike many kid’s boxes which tend to focus on crafts and toys, Bramble Box encourages learning through open-ended pretend play.
Every Bramble Box is focused on a different theme and contains materials for hours & hours of free play fun. Boxes are gender neutral and can include such themes as detective, post office, bakery, and more. The materials are intended to help your child use their imagination, express themselves, improve reading and math skills, learn about the world around them, and overall, have FUN.
Bramble Boxes are available for purchase as single boxes, on a month-to-month basis, and as multi-month subscriptions. The monthly and one-time boxes are $25, while multi-month commitments are as low as $23/month.
Let’s have a look inside May’s Bramble Box!
Everything was shipped in a standard brown package adorned with cute Bramble Box stickers.
As mentioned before, this month’s theme is “Gardener” and a list of everything inside the box was conveniently pasted to the inner lid.
A peek inside. Could their little fox logo be any cuter? Nope. It couldn’t.
Egg Carton Garden – This neat little kit has everything you need to grown your very own “Tickle Me Plants”! Your kiddo can prepare the soil pellets for planting by soaking them in water, then following the instructions on the packet to plant the seeds. I think I had something similar to a “Tickle Me” plant when I was younger… When you touch the plant’s leaves, they fold up/close in reaction to your “tickling”.
There was also a list of activities to try using your growing Tickle Me Plant!
Melissa & Doug Gardening Tools – Colorful, kid-friendly gardening tools from Melissa & Doug. This cultivator and trowel set is perfect for digging in the sand or soil. The ends are made of sturdy metal, which makes me a little hesitant to give to my kiddos just yet… I’m actually thinking of “borrowing” them to use in the garden myself. 😉
Peat Pots and Jiffy Pellets – When your Tickle Me Plants outgrow the egg carton garden, they can be moved to these larger pots. These soil pellets work about the same way as the pellets in the first project. Just soak them in water until they can’t absorb any more, place the pellet in the pot, remove the mesh covering, and fluff with a fork. The plants can then be transferred right into the new pot, original pellet and all.
Sticker Scene – Your child can use the colorful garden-themed stickers to decorate the provided scene. They can also use them to add some color to their egg carton planter, or anywhere else that could use a little touch of spring.
I love this month’s Bramble Box theme! It’s perfect for spring and is something that should keep a child’s interest for quite a while (as long as the little plants keep growing!). The addition of kid-friendly gardening tools was a great choice too, though I may steal them for myself. 🙂 Overall, another great Bramble Box!Browse more Kids Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
