Bramble Box Suitcase

Instead of the normal square box, Bramble Box shipped in a cardboard suitcase this month.  They put the shipping label on the bottom, so the fun stickers wouldn’t be destroyed.  You child can keep this box and use it for pretend play.

First Look

There is always a sticker on the inside of the lid of the box, with all the activities and goodies in the box listed.  This month, the theme is “World Traveler”.

World Map

This month, there are several crafts from around the world.  Your child can use the map to see where each craft comes from.

Travel Documents

Since Bramble Box loves to encourage pretend play, they included a passport, stickers, and boarding passes so your child can pretend to travel.  Once the crafts are completed, your child can put the appropriate country stickers in the passport.

Doodles United States Coloring Fun

Doodles United States Coloring Fun  To teach the 50 states, a coloring book was included.  Pages include information about each state, abbreviation, when it was founded, nickname, capital, flower and bird.  My oldest liked learning about each state and my 3-year-old loved coloring.

049

Here is a look in the book.

Art Supplies

There was a full container of glue and pack of 8 Crayola Crayons to use with the projects,

Mexico: Paper Plate Maraca:

Mexico: Paper Plate Maraca:  There was enough materials to make two maracas.  There was a card with instructions and pictures.

Mexico: Paper Plate Maraca supplies

To make this craft, you need plates, streamers, sting, beads, and beans.

063

Threading the beads, this was great for practicing fine motor skills

061

Threading was really easy for my almost 6-year-old.  He was able to do this craft with little to no assistance.

067

You had to glue the plates together.  We added staples to keep it together.

010

Finished projects: My 6-year-old’s is on the left, 3-year-old on the right.  My 6 year old really doesn’t like to color, so he tends to rush through that part.

Japan: Koinobori:

Japan: Koinobori:  In Japanese, Koinobori means “carp streamer”.  These streamers are flown on Children’s Day in Japan, to honor good fortune and a great future for children.

Japan: Koinobori supplies

There was enough materials for two windsocks! and it took many different supplies.

Gluing on the streamers

072

You also had to cut out and glue fish scales.  You needed around 25 scales, so I cut those out.  The instructions are better online for this craft.  Bramble Box includes the url to see full breakdowns for each craft.  This project took about 45 mins to complete.

011

These are the finished windsocks. (L age 6 is on the left, T age 3 is on the right).  L put many more scales on his fish than T, although it’s hard to tell in this picture.

Germany: Paper Alpine Hat

Germany: Paper Alpine Hat:  This is a traditional alpine hat from Bavaria.

Germany: Paper Alpine Hat supplies

You only needed just a few supplies for this craft.  The edelweiss flower was printed on the back of the instructions.

002

This only took a few mins (maybe 5) for L to complete.

004

While L made the hat, T colored in the coloring book.

Bavaria Alpine Hat

The finished hat.  L wasn’t feeling the flower, so he just added a feather.

Bramble Box loaded this box with fun!

017

Final Thought: This was my favorite Bramble Box to date, and I am pretty sure my kids feel the same way.  There was enough materials for five complete crafts (2 each of 2 crafts and 1 hat), perfect for siblings to share.  The windsocks turned out so cute, I can’t wait to hang them outside.  It’s currently raining here, so we have to wait for a sunny day.  Bramble Box always includes so much fun in the boxes.  Even after the crafts are completed, there is still a coloring book, passport, map, suitcase and stickers to play with.  If you want to try Bramble Box, use this link with the code SUMMER30 to save 30% on your 1st box.  Bramble Box is also giving one reader the World Traveler Bramble Box, just enter below!
