In December last year, I did some blogging for M-Net Movies promoting their kids movies over the Christmas holidays last year and as part of the brief, I received a blogger drop that contained two awesome activity kits for kids.
We created our own bird feeder and an owl lantern from the activity kits and Ava loved it!
Now, for those of you who know me or have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I am NOT a crafty mom, I suck at it, I hate it. I find it messy and mostly I just lack the creativity to do these types of activities with my girls, but Ava LOVES it. She is all about the arts and crafts and absolutely loves these activities. I always feel so guilty because I moan and groan and really scratch my head for ideas on what to do with her.
Then Maya from Explore More contacted me a couple of months ago and let me know that she was the creator of the craft boxes for the M-Met Movies campaign and she’d like to send me another one to try. We received a Paint Party box and I thought Ava was going to faint from excitement when she saw the box, while I groaned internally and thought about the mess….
This weekend, I finally relented and agreed to let Ava and her bestie do the paint box and they absolutely loved it! I loved it too because the box comes with EVERYTHING you need to create the 3 activities inside and literally when they were done, I could roll up the newpaper and toss the left overs with very little mess or fuss.
The paint box contained 3 different paint activities:
- Colour Blocking – Create colour block paintings on your own canvas’s
- Spinning Art – Create beautiful spinning art cards
- Mono printing – Introduce kids to the art of print making
These activities were easy to set up, came with simple instructions to follow (even I could understand and follow them and did I mention…. I suck at crafty) and the kids loved it.
There are a large variety of boxes to choose from too, if painting is not your thing:
The boxes are not just fun, but also focus on the development of the child, including fine motor skills, gross motor skills, discovery. creating and imagination, communication skills.
Best of all, you can order your boxes online and there are a number of options, from purchasing as a gift, to subscription options and even sibling boxes where the activities are duplicated for two children.
I’ve had a look at the boxes and Walter and I have decided to order the 3 month sibling subscription, as the activities are a great way to keep the kids busy during the cold winter months when it’s not so great to be playing outdoors.
Maya from Explore More has also given me two boxes, valued at R350 each to give away to you, my readers. All you need to is follow the Rafflecopter entry points below to be eligible to win.
