There is a new subscription box on the Canadian market and this one is aimed at kids. Curiosity Box is a monthly box of crafts and activities to make it easy and convenient for parents to engage in creative time with their children. Curiosity Box was founded by a mom who was looking to spend more quality time with her son.  

The concept behind Curiosity Box was born of necessity; I was a busy working mom that wanted to spend time with my son who enjoys doing crafts and activities together, but was constantly challenged with finding the time and energy to plan the crafts and other activities that were engaging and fun for us.  I love crafting, scrapbooking, baking and being creative and I wanted to see the same passion for creativity passed onto my son.  With our busy and hectic lives, I always felt like our quality creative time was so

Along with subscription plans, Curiosity Box also offers single themed boxes for purchase, starting at $26.95, as well as party boxes. The Party Box is great for birthdays or special events and contains 2 themed crafts plus one activity for up to 8 children. The projects are aimed at children aged 3-7 years.


Curiosity generously sent me the May box for review. The theme of the May box is Mother's Day & Spring. 


The project card is packed with information, including instructions for three craft projects and one discovery project. The back side of the card offers four more activity ideas and some fun facts about Mother's Day.

The first project is for Mother's Day. It's "Mom's Memo Board". The craft involves gluing a dry erase sheet onto the pink foam and then decorating the boarders with foam shapes and letters. A little magnet is attached to the bag. A dry erase marker was also included.


The next project is a Mom Bracelet. It's a basic jewellery craft that involves stringing beads and charms onto a stretchy cord. A pipe cleaner is included for smaller kids that can't manage threading the cord. 
 
The third craft is a sock puppet. There were two versions of this craft - flower or frog. I received flower since the box was created with my niece in mind. 


The activity included is gardening. The kit includes a plastic cup with domed lid, peat pellets, and flower seeds. This activity continues for a few weeks as the kids can water their flowers and watch them grow.




So far my niece and I have only completed the Mother's Day crafts. The Memo Board and Bracelet turned out great. I did the crafts with 5-year-old Ella. She needed a bit of help but for the most part she did everything on her own. I wish the instructions were a little more clear, specifically for the puppet project. The instruction says to use the photo as a guide and assemble the puppet. The photo is quite small so it's hard to use it as a guide. Overall I am really impressed with this box and the entire Curiosity Box concept. I especially love the idea of a Party Box.
