DoodleBug Busy Bags time! My kiddos love getting these packages each month. — So many toddler-friendly crafts!
If you’re not aware, DoodleBug Busy Bags is a fun subscription for little ones from Kidable Adventures (the company behind Little Thinker Box). Bags are aimed at children ages 3 through 9 and contain all of the materials needed to complete 4 to 8 fun crafts. Each bag will focus on a different theme, often relating to upcoming holidays or seasons. Monthly subscriptions are $15.99 and include free shipping.
Let’s see what’s in the September 2015 DoodleBug Busy Bag!
As usual, the crafts were sent in a bubble envelope and sealed in a ziplock bag.
September’s theme was “Superhero” and all of the crafts were listed on the info sheet, along with photos and tips on how to complete each one.
Color Your Own Superhero Mask – Using the pre-cut mask, elastic band, and box of colored pencils, your child can be on their way to becoming a real superhero.
Evie enjoyed coloring the mask, but when it came to putting it on she wasn’t havin’ it. Ah well.
The end result.
Superhero Cape – Every superhero needs a cape! Well, except Ev, who refused to wear this too. Pssh.
Magic Color Scratch Superheroes – These are neat, but my kiddos always have trouble using the scratching tool. You’re supposed to use it to remove the layer of black and reveal the bright colors hidden beneath, but it involves a lot of pressure and finding just the right angle on the scratcher.
We tried using different objects to scratch — the ends of pencils, keys, etc. — but she just couldn’t get the hang of it.
DIY Superhero Shield – Using the included paper plate, elastic strip, glue dots, stickers, and colored pencils, your child can make their own superhero shield.
Ev had fun putting all of the star stickers on and was super serious when it came to decorating it with the colored pencils.
The finished shield! I was impressed by how well the glue dots held the elastic on. Those little things are strong!
Superhero Pocket Folder – There was also a cool folder included to store your supplies and finished crafts.
Superhero Sticker Scene – Inside of the folder were more activities, including this sticker scene that featured a city background sheet and a variety of superhero stickers.
DIY Comic Book – Also inside the folder was a DIY comic book that your child can create using the colored pencils and two sheets of additional superhero stickers.
Another fun DoodleBug Busy Bag! My girls aren’t all that into superheroes, so that might be the reason for the lack of desire to wear the cape & mask… But it was still a fun assortment of crafts. I’m guessing they’ll enjoy the upcoming month’s bag themes a lot more — Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! Should be fun!Browse more Kids Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
September 2015 DoodleBug Busy Bag Review
While my girls weren’t all that into the theme for this month, they still enjoyed making the crafts. The superhero shield was probably their favorite. Definitely looking forward to the upcoming holiday-themed bags!
