I have been looking at a big plastic bag sitting on my kitchen table for the past couple of weeks and longing for some spare time to actually open it and enjoy the contents with Samudra. With work taking up most of my time, I’ve had to learn to live with my guilt as I know Samudra would be so happy to see what is inside, and I wanted to spend some proper quality time doing this together.
Earlier this week we finally took it off the table and I opened the plastic bag for Samudra and he immediately started singing “Happy Birthday to Mudra….” as he was so excited to see the package… Followed by “what’s dat mumma?” (repeat twenty times while I am opening the box). I saw postings on Facebook for GummyBox products a few months ago and thought it looked like such a great idea to get kids creative juices flowing, and had heard such great reviews about it and so couldn’t wait to try it also.
We opened the box and Samudra tipped the contents out and once he spied the orange workers jacket he insisted on putting it on. The box came with three different activities for children to be creative with, and I can’t decide who was more excited to discover what was inside!
As he was already wearing his cute little jacket, we decided to do the ‘My Safety Area’ activity first. So we stuck up the construction signs and marked out our space with the barrier tape and put together the traffic cones and made the play table his little safety area. There’s also a little Construction activity book but I think Samudra is too young to appreciate that one as he was already starting on the next activity.
The Building Cards were great for Samudra and although he didn’t strictly follow the card slots for putting the cards together, he was quickly joining the cards and pulling them apart again, and the concentration on his face was adorable. There are also crayons in the package for kids to decorate their own card to be used in the pack. This was a colourful and fun way to see him putting his little mind to work to see what his imagination could come up with.
Our last activity for the morning was the ‘Marble Run’ which included 4 cardboard building structures which Samudra decorated with the gorgeous sticker packets which he loved doing. As he’s still a little young, I helped him to construct the set and he had a great time rolling the included balls and marbles down the bridges into the goal box.
I absolutely love the packaging from GummyBox and the activities that they have inside and think it would be a great idea to get lots of kids together for a play date to be creative and use their imaginations while learning about different themes, and I also think these boxes would make great gifts for children.
