May Bramble Box time! — This month’s box featured a cute flower shop theme.
If you’re not aware, Bramble Box is a fun subscription box for children aged 4 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. (Right now you can save 20% on your first month with coupon code “BLOG20“!)
Let’s see what’s inside the May 2016 Bramble Box!
A peek inside.
Bramble Box has is now adding a fun welcome pack to every new subscriber’s first box. It consists of a full-sized bottle of glue, an 8-pack of crayons, and a sticker book.
Each box will now come with a themed sticker which your child can place in their new book. Once all of the pages have been filled up (12 stickers in all), they can submit a photo of it for a special prize! Neat. 🙂
While previously pasted to the inside lid, Bramble Box has now started to provide project instructions in their own little booklet. It also included some info on state flowers and photos of subscribers enjoying past Bramble Boxes.
Flower Materials – Plenty of supplies were included for creating a variety of different flowers. There were 3 colors of tissue paper (red, orange & pink), 2 cardboard pots, pipecleaners, and paper doilies.
More Materials – Three different colors of cupcake liners and pink & yellow felt smiley stickers were also provided for “happy face flowers”.
“Basket” Cards & Open/Closed Sign – Four sheets of paper with basket patterns were included to turn the Bramble Box box into a flower basket or shop. A 2-sided card with “Open” and “Closed” was also provided.
Hours Sign & Price List – These handy sheets can let everyone know when your kiddo’s flower shop is open and how much the goods sell for. Both sheets have a glossy finish and can be filled in with dry erase markers to update hours and prices as needed. 😉
Money – ‘Cos you can’t buy Bramble Box flowers without Bramble Box money!
Everything in the box.
First things first. — The flower-themed sticker was carefully placed into our new sticker book.
There were a few different types of flowers shown in the instruction booklet, but we mainly focused on these cute (and easy) smiley face ones. It basically involved taking two cupcake liners, poking a hole in them, securing a pipecleaner through the middle, and placing a smiley face sticker the end. Easy peasy!
My husband worked on a few of the trickier ones… He wasn’t sure if he did it right, but it looks good to me!
The girls had fun playing with their new creations and were a little less than pleased when I took them away for a few minutes to take photos.
So many flowers!!
The doily bouquets were a little tricky to keep together, but they were pretty. 🙂
Yet another fun theme from Bramble Box! I honestly wasn’t too sure if my kiddos would be all that into it (especially since my husband and I made most of the flowers), but they couldn’t wait to play with everything once it was all assembled. They even made flower “families” consisting of mommy, daddy, and baby flower. Aw.
