Hi everyone!!

Sorry it has been a while, we have been really busy over the last couple of months with Christmas activities, school and university!!  I am back now woo!!

As the weather has, yet again, taken a very cold turn, it was the perfect time to have some craft fun with the kids!

 Weekend Box is a great little craft box that is full of fun activities.  We have had 2 of these before and this one was the definite favourite.  Why I hear you ask, well it was dinosaur themed.  Always a winner this house.

This box has 4 Dino activities: Dinosaur claws, Dino hatchling, clothes peg dinosaur and Dino egg nests.  Tonight Liam and Sophie decided to make the clothes peg dinosaur.

The box gives you everything you need for the crafts included, you just need scissors.  Let the fun begin. 

The simple step by step guide has illustrations as well as numbered steps, making it easy to follow.  I like this as it means the kids can see what they should be doing.

As you can see, the kids were do happy to have their photos taken!!  They did have fun honestly.  They took it in turns to complete the steps.  We had a lot of laughing along the way, especially as dad managed to draw over himself and glued the paper to his fingers!!

The great thing about this box is it promotes, not only having fun, but team work too. Liam and Sophie worked great with each other and encouraged one another at the tricky parts.  

The next activity planned for tomorrow after school is the Dino egg nests, yummmmmy.

The Weekend Box is a subscription service.  You can select a 2 activity box at £5.95 per box, first box is £2.98 (fortnightly delivery) or the 4 activity box at £8.95 per box, first box is £4.48 (fortnightly or monthly delivery).  You can also gift a box from the selections mentioned here.

I think the boxes are worth the money, the kids love them and it means the whole family can join in and have fun together.

Survey reveals that a third of UK parents have less than 10 hours a week to spend with their children A third of UK parents have less than 10 hours a week to spend with their children, which equates to just over 1 hour each day. A survey commissioned by children’s activity provider Weekend Box Club, revealed that 88% of parents wished they had more quality time to spend with their children. Modern living and pressures dictate that finding quality time to spend together is proving difficult.
