This box was SO neat! It is a LOVE books box for the busy parent! Everything you need to complete the activities are included – with background information and facts to get the kids extending their learning even more! As a teacher, I know that young children retain information more when presented in thematic units. Kids are more engaged, learning is connected, and multiple skills are integrated into the learning process. My kids were so excited to receive their BabbaBox and couldn’t wait to get reading and exploring the with the theme of rainbows. We had some great discussions on the difficult concept of light and even went on search for a real rainbow after it rained.
Help for playdate hosts!
I hosted an art playdate at my house this week for friends and REALLY appreciated that I could add some of my own supplies to one of the activities provided in our box and have enough for a group of 10. The pre-printed information and step-by-step instructions made setting up this learning station a breeze and saved me lots of time. It also gave me an opportunity to share the BabbaBox concept with other parents!
Activities to Create
One of my kids favorite activities was making a rainbow hat by dieing the fabric with tissue paper. (How awesome is it that Babbaco even included the water spay bottle! They really do send everything you need.)
Extend your learning and creating
Do you want to explore rainbows in your home today? We had extra tissue paper left over and used the same process on a piece of blank white construction paper to create a rainbow picture! If you haven’t tried this yet – get your paper wet, cover it with tissue papers, and spray it some more. I set the kiddos on a plastic bag because it was a little drippy. ***Watch out it does stain!*** When it is all dry, take the tissue papers off and enjoy!
My children and even myself were pretty excited when we found a Babbabox on our doorstep for us to review! I can imagine how much fun it would be to look for it each month with great anticipation when you join. The BabbaBox had everything we needed in it for hours of learning fun! I think the part of their box that impressed me the most were the four components their program uses to teach with.
