Bramble Box

Each Bramble Box has a cute little fox on the top.  The box this month can be used to turn into a flower box.

Each month, the sticker goes on a hot air balloon.

flower shop

The theme for May is “Flower Shop”.  Children make make their own paper flowers and sell them in their own shop.

The box turns into a little flower box, just use tape or glue to affix the sides.

store supplies

There were laminate pieces to use for the store.  Your child can use a dry erase marker or crayon to write the store hours and prices.  The money can be cut apart and used as pretend play.  The open sign has a cute “closed” sign on the back.

Flower supplies

There were tons of supplies to make flowers.  There were also two little pots to make plants.

tissue paper flowers

The information book has information on how much adult involvement is needed and how difficult each project is.  The first set of flowers uses a fan folding method to create fun flowers.

making a stem

Twisting the stem on the flowers was good practice for fine motor skills.

I had to help fan out the flower, but it turned out so cute.

My 7-year-old was able to make the flowers by himself.

baking cup flowers

The second type of flower was a baking cup flower.  This was T’s favorite flower to make, because he needed very little assistance from me.

baking cup flower step 1

To make the basic flower, your child turns a baking cup inside out and places it in another cup.  The adult helper makes a hole in the center for the stem.

baking cup 2

Your child puts the stem in, makes a little loop, then adds a sticker.

My son had a great time making all kinds of flowers.


T set up his flower shop in the living room and the whole family played together.  It was a fun playing without one of the kids wanting to play the XBOX or watch a movie before bed.  T had so much fun, he took his box to his room, so he could have it ready for tomorrow.

This is a look at the completed flowers.  There are several single flowers, a bouquet and pretty single flowers.

Bramble Box

Final Thought: This month’s box was really fun.  When I first saw the flower making theme, I wasn’t sure if my rough and tumble boys would enjoy it.  Both boys had fun making the flowers and even more fun with the pretend shop.  T is at the age where he loves playing store and using his imagination, so I know this box is going to be played with often.
