My kids are pretty creative individuals, but there are those days when they still need to be entertained (like every day). When I first heard about Wummelbox, I knew this would be a really great way to keep them busy but learning.
So what is a Wummelbox? Wummelbox is a European-style arts & crafts subscription service for kids that is designed to inspire learning, creativity and exploration. Wummelbox provides families with all the materials needed for hours of hands-on fun all in one box. The best part for busy parents? It’s conveniently delivered right to your doorstep!
Appropriate for ages 3-8, each Wummelbox is based on a particular theme (i.e., Nutrition, Music, or Color and Light) and includes all the materials needed (plus instructions) for a child to create 3-4 projects. We received the “Nutrition” themed box:
The nutrition-themed Wummelbox had four arts & crafts projects that invite kids to explore the delicious world of food and cooking:
• We opened our own colorful grocery store and sell our handmade fruit and veggies (Recycle the Wummelbox and turn it into a cash register for your grocery store!) Check out our mad sewing skillz:
• Become your own head chef and decide what goes into your very own cookbook. Decorate and personalize your own chef’s apron, too!
• Play a fruit and veggie game and learn which foods grow on trees or in the ground.
• Experiment and learn with food. Make paste for art projects out of potatoes and discover how water separates from starch or conduct a “full-feeling” experiment to see how the pace of eating influences how quickly you feel.
My girls had a great time playing the fruit and veggie game with their little brother. They tried many times to trick him but he knew his stuff! And of course, they were all totally inspired and “helped” me make dinner that evening! I decided to make a big salad so they could see all of the ingredients, how it was prepared and learn how important vegetables are to a healthy diet. After dinner, we all sat down as a family and created our own fruits and veggies and set up a pretend grocery store in our living room. Wummelbox entertained my kids that entire day and they still break it out to create more! Its perfect for a rainy day at home when the kids are getting stir-crazy! I highly recommend Wummelbox for busy moms.
