DoodleBug Busy Bags August 2015 Review
Disclosure: This box was received for review purposes.
DoodleBug Busy Bags is a subscription for kids 3 to 9 from Kidable Adventures. Kidable Adventures also makes Little Thinker Box, which I have reviewed a few times. DoodleBug Busy Bags is $15.99/month and contains 4-8 currated crafts, often made around specific holidays. All the crafts are designed to be easy to complete, and perfect for developing hand/eye coordination, and fine motor skills.
What’s in the box? Each month, your child will get a bag full of 4-8 fun crafts.
DoodleBug Busy Bags comes in a white padded envelope.
Inside the package was a tote and bag full of crafts.
There was an information sheet with pictures and descriptions of each activity.
Zoo Animal Necklace Craft Kit: Beads and string were included to make an animal necklace. This craft is great at developing fine motor skill.
T really enjoyed lacing the beads, I just told him what order to put them in.
Animal Mask: The mask was already put together, perfect for immediate play.
T wore it around for a bit, although he doesn’t like hat’s or things on his face, so his big brother will likely play with it.
Mini Zoo Animal Coloring Book and Crayons: A mini coloring book and crayons were in the pack. I am going to put these in our diaper bag for something to do in waiting rooms.
Animal Finger Puppets: T is all about figures for his trucks. T put them on his fingers, then decided they would be better driving his dump truck.
Zoo Animal Slap Bracelet: Each bag contain one animal themed slap bracelet. I remember these from when I was a kid. My first slap bracelet was a New Kids on the Block one.
Eric Carle’s 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo Number Craft Kit: This craft the was highlight of the package. There is a long accordion train, and your child has to put the train cars in order. The number 9 car has snakes, which was quite challenging to count.
Both boys worked on this project together.
Zoo Animal Sticker Sheet: Various animals were sent, we received the tiger. Using the stickers, your child can make a face on the enclosed cardstock.
Paper Plate Zoo Animal Craft Kit: Using the foam pieces, your child assembles this craft to be an animal. We received the hippo.
L worked on this project and found it fun and fast to do.
Here is a look at all the completed projects!
Final Thought: DoodleBug Busy Bags is filled with several little crafts to occupy your little ones. I would like to see a few more crafts for the price, but my kids thought the subscription was fun. The crafts take no extra supplies, so this is a great subscription to take a craft and tuck it in your purse for impatient moments in the waiting room.
