BaptuBox August 2015 Review + Exclusive 60% Coupon – New Subscription Box for Kids
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I received this box for review.
BaptuBox is a new art, craft and science based subscription box for children 5-8 years olds. Boxes are $29.99/month and filled with 2-3 art, craft and science projects each month. Your first box will included markers and scissors, in addition to all the craft and materials needed for the projects. I have a 6 year old son who was eager to test out the box.
Cost: $29.99. $79.99/3 months.
What's in the box? Every box comes with all the materials and tools needed to make 2-3 art, craft and science projects.
BaptuBox shipped by USPS and came in a white box.
First Look. Everything was packaged so neatly. I was impressed they used bubble wrap, a first for a children's subscription box.
BaptuBox included an instruction booklet with directions for all the projects.
Every step had full color illustrations. My son and I found the instructions very easy to follow.
Your child's first box will come with a set of 6 Washable Crayola Markers and a pair of scissors.
Glittering Flowers: For this project, your child makes two glitter flowers in soil. The glue came in its own ziploc bag, which was something I appreciated.
Assembling the glitter flowers.
The stems were more tricky, you had to make little cuts, then roll the paper and glue.
There was also 10 pieces of grass to cut out and glue around the “pot”.
This is the finished project. This had some easy parts, but there was enough of a challenge that an 8 year old would have fun too.
Balloon Car: Using the supplies provided, your child can make a balloon car and really works.
This project was fun to put together. I had to help hold things while L tapped, so I didn't get many pictures of the process.
The finished balloon car.
L raced the car all over the kitchen floor, even Tsum Tsum Mickey hitched a ride.
Butterfly Ring: Your child can make their own butterfly ring, and color it to their liking.
L didn't feel like cutting, so I cut out the butterfly and L colored it.
It turned out so cute.
I cut around the antenni, instead of making new ones, otherwise we followed the instructions as written.
Final Thought: This was a really fun box. The balloon car was played with the most, L has been trying to see what can ride on the car and how fast it will go. The projects were easy enough for a 6 year old but still had some challenges for an 8 year old. All the projects took several steps, so it wasn't something that was quickly done and forgotten. This is an impressive new box! If you are interested in trying BaptuBox, check out this link with the code SM60 to save 60% on your first order.
