Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Claire for sending me and Katie this box to review.
My Gecko Box is a craft subscription box aimed at 3 – 10 year olds made by mums for mums. It’s brings fun and education and combines them in a stimulating box with a cute theme and an awesome design.
Katie LOVED the theme we had in our discovery box! You can see her pure excitement and delight in our live unboxing here…
The box came wrapped in a red and white dotty mail bag. The packaging on the box was awsome so much detail! We were both impressed by its eye catching design.
So wrapped carefully in green tissue paper inside this fairy fun box was…
Not only did this show us the crafts it was also chocked full of fun fairy facts, information and even helped us find our fairy name.
Make your own fairy wand
This was definitely Katies favourite! From when she first saw the box she was dying to find out what was jingling inside. Her face when she found out it was a make your very own fairy wand kit was a picture of joy and astoundment. With some help from mummy and a little bit of pixie dust, her wand was complete and impressive it was indeed. This allowed her to cast a whole range of spells and grant joy to all and let’s face it a fairy is not a fairy without her wand.
Make your own fairy headband
She really enjoyed making this, it required the most help due to the fiddliness of tying and threading, but the results were well worth it! It made her feel like a true woodland fairy princess and was super fun to make.
Make your own fairy flowerpot
This was a super cute project and now proudly sits on her window sill, she waves her wand over it every day and gives it a sprinkling of fairy dew (water) everyday.
Make your own almanac
This was the easiest out of the crafts to make Katie only needed help with the bow, the rubbing (that fascinated her to see the design show through so much she gasped and giggled with glee) and cutting the quill.
Katie loved this from the leaf rubbing to creating her own ace your SATS potion.
Unfortunately her homework did not disappear with the potion but she blasted threw it with the help of the yummy drink. She also loved making some fairy dust and joyfully sprinkled it around her snowdrop to help it grow (with the help of her wand of course)
We both loved this box, it was fun and long after the crafting was over it encouraged the imagination to run wild. I can see plenty more fairy fun days ahead and we just can’t wait for our fairy flower to bloom.
The box had pretty much everything we needed the only thing we needed to add was a pair of scissors and some soil.
The activities were simple but well thought out and plenty of fun was had by us both, these would make an amazing activity table at a kids party. I’m feeling fairy fling for Katies next birthday and am sure this would go down a storm!
You can see from the look on her face how proud she is and how much fun this has been.
