Kids Activities Delivered : Giveaway



Because all good things come in three's, here's my third giveaway.

A hat trick of giveaways, if you will.

And this one is probably the easiest for me, because this review pretty much writes itself - 

  • Delivered straight to your door
  • Entertain your kids without the assistance of electronic devices
  • Passively educate them while they're attempting to glue their fingers together
  • Pat yourself on the back for doing craft activities with your kids
  • all from the comfort of your lounge room
  • Wearing elastic waisted pants.  Or Pyjamas
  • With wine.  You, not the kids

    HUZZAH!


Kids Activities Delivered is a genius Aussie company who have put together themed activity boxes that will both entertain and educate your little people.

You can choose from five themes:

The website lists the different activities associated with each theme, so you can choose the box that best suits your kids' interests and abilities.

I saw "make your own snow globe" and was immediately all WE ARE DOING ANTARCTICA! without even consulting my kids.

Our package arrived addressed to the kids, which gave them as much excitement as opening the package itself.

It's the little things that really excite my little people


We commenced crafting over the Easter break and school holidays.

I'm not going to lie, I expected it to be painful for a completely craft-less anti-activity participator like yours truly.  But once I got that first whiff of craft glue and spotted the googly eyes, I was in.

Please enjoy my exceptionally amateur attempt at a little photo montage of our crafting in action:

Behold, the Antarctica Activity Box.
Love that there is three of everything, right down to the last sparkly pipe cleaner.



Penguin Finger puppets.  Featuring googly eyes recently shot out of Mstr5's nose

Snowflakes.  The girls nearly lost their shit over the sparkle and bead factor

Snow Globes.  Just pretend the lumps of white clay are glaciers.
Took every ounce of my being to stop my OCD self from making the glaciers more.....glacier like



I did not lose my shit once.  I almost went postal at one point because Mstr5 insisted on inserting the googly eyes into his nostrils so he could make them shoot across the table with one rapid fake sneeze.

Delightful, and not part of the included activities.

I didn't get photos of the diorama, and while I'd like to be able to offer an appropriate excuse, the truth is, I was too busy creating craft glue shapes and gluing my fingers together.

Am nothing if not totes mature....

The kids loved their Kids Activities Delivered box, and it really broke up the school holidays boredom on the rainy days.

With the added bonus of Mstr5 discovering a new talent that I'm sure he'll gladly whip out for the next school talent show.
