Let’s see what’s in the September 2016 Outside the Box by Cheeky Days box!
A peek inside!
Attached to the inside lid were instructions for September’s crafts, as well as a #besuper Challenge Card.
The theme for September’s box was “Be Super”. A 2-sided info card listed all the items in the box, along with descriptions and the reasons for including each one.
A box within a box!
Tiny Superheroes Cape – Tiny Superheroes is a company whose mission is to empower children with cancer, congenital heart defects, epilepsy, undiagnosed syndromes, rare diseases, autism, and other illnesses/conditions via their super cool capes. With every cape purchased, a portion of the sale goes towards the creation of a second cape for a child on their waiting list.
Also included with the cape was a Tiny Superheroes bracelet and two “squad” cards featuring fellow tiny superheroes.
The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade by Justin Roberts – September’s featured book was about a little girl named Sally who proves that you’re never too little to make a big difference. After silently witnessing bullying and kids being cruel to one another in school, Sally finally speaks up and is heard loud and clear. Such a great book for showing kids that everyone can have a voice and stand up for what’s right.
Superhero Mask Craft – Now that your child has a cool cape, they’re also gonna need a superhero mask! Two colorful masks were included, along with various self-adhesive felt pieces to decorate them.
Superhero Stick Craft – We haven’t had a chance to make these yet, but they look adorable. (I tried to find a good image of the completed craft to no avail, but you can kind of get an idea of how they look on the info card at the beginning of this review.) You basically cut triangles out of the colored paper, glue one to a stick, then add eyes and decorate to make a little stick guy superhero. Then write the words “Perseverance”, “Kindness”, and “Empathy” on each one and give them to 3 friends who demonstrates those “superpowers”.
Paint Craft – Using the provided canvas, paints, and brushes, have your child think of their favorite superhero power and paint it on the canvas. The completed work of art can then be mailed to Tiny Superheroes (using the included mailing label) so they can motivate and encourage a child overcoming an illness or disability.
Special Mom Gift – A little something for all the super moms out there! These dainty earrings from Maple + Mauve are made of bamboo and measure just 1/4″ big (small). They’re handmade, finished in teak oil, and attached to titanium posts. I think these are adorable and really wish I still had pierced ears to wear them!
Once again, Outside the Box by Cheeky Days delivered a fun, “feel good” box for kiddos. I loved the message of every child being a superhero/having their own superpowers, no matter what obstacles they may be facing. Such a great message! — Remember, if you’d like to sign up you can save 10% on your first box when you use coupon code “2LittleRosebuds” at checkout!
