I know my kids go through 'crafty phases' where as some kids are just permanent craft creators! Well imagine receiving a craft box with everything you need in it for lots of projects, with no left over packets of ribbon, string, googly eyes, paint, ice cream sticks etc etc and you don't even have to shop for it!! Making craft at home can have so many benefits for kids, obviously creativity, but also increasing their attention span, fine motor skills, gross motor skills and good old fun!
Can you imagine the look on your little one's face if they got a package addressed to them full of craft goodness?
Well two clever Melbourne Mums from My Creative Box have come up with a solution, because who has time to hunt for templates, materials or even to come up with idea's?!?! You can order a box and it is full of craft goodness, with an overview sheet of all the projects and a picture of the finished products too!
These Mum's are super organised and everything is meticulously packed. Each project from My Creative box is individually packaged and includes EVERYTHING and i mean everything! It has instructions and ALL the materials needed to complete the activity.
It's great how you can just complete one activity at a time and keep the rest neatly in the box, As as all good crafty kids do, you can even use the box at the end to create a masterpiece!!
Step by Step instructions are provided, so kids can easily follow along themselves or ask for a bit of help. So even if you don't have a 'crafty kid' these activities have a clear end point, so I think these boxes would be loved by all.
The original boxes are designed for 3-6 year olds, but as we all know little siblings always like to join in - so a toddler box designed for 18months to 3 years has also been introduced! Each box is $35 or you can choose the monthly subscription offer which is only $30 per month.
Why not give it a go for a month and see what you think? Check all the details at www.mycreativebox.com.au and pre-order your October box (pre-order released in the first two weeks of the month). P.S pick up is also available from 3015 Newport, VIC,
I've being using the Melbourne Entertainment book for over 10 years, so I was a little excited when I discovered there was a new Bali version! I have saved money over the years on dinners, play centres, take away food, family day outs and just a simple loaf of bread - and it's very similar for the Bali version. I often tell my friends that you get your 'money's worth' in the first couple of uses and then all the additional savings are a bonus!
Most families I know who head to Bali make a visit to Waterbom Park. The family can spend the whole day there and we saved A$32 (as a family of 4) from the Entertainment Book on entry. Although you probably have a lovely pool at your hotel, nothing beats the thrills and exhilaration of all the water slides, although I have to admit my favourite had to be the lazy river!! There is also a fantastic kids area with smaller slides and a tipping bucket. Tip - get there early if you want to secure a cabana but there are plently of comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas. The Entertainment Book offers 100,000RP (approx. A$10) off full price adult tickets and 70,000RP (approx. A$7) off any full price child tickets up to 4 people.
