I am so excited to be sharing this post with you. I enlisted some eager volunteers to help me to test an Imagine Pack by http://www.cleverboxclub.com. It’s an Irish product and I wanted to see what it was like. It’s fantastically well thought out. We had pretty much everything we needed. They even give you glue! All I needed to supply was sellotape , scissors and some crayons. I would give it 10/10 for the contents of the kit. The kids just loved all the large, brightly coloured stickers that are included. There were loads and loads of them too which made sharing very easy. Well done Clever Box Club! There is a leaflet inside that offers some suggestions of what you can create with your blank box. As teacher, I just love the idea of having a kit that encourages you to use your imagination. If you want a castle you can make a castle. Prefer a rocket or a shop? No problem. The only limit with the gift is your imagination 🙂
My “helpers” ranged from 2yrs to 9yrs old. The older children loved making their own decorations for the class using the coloured paper that was included.
The “littlies” used the stickers. In this castle “less is more” certainly doesn’t apply. Every inch of the castle was decorated.
I did the cutting out of the windows, door and battlements and the children did the rest.
The kit was a HUGE success with all the children giving it 10/10. Each child like it for a different reason. The older children thought that it would be lovely to have as a quiet, personal space to read a book in. The little kids tore in and out, opening and closing the draw bridge and having imaginary sword fights. I can’t believe how sturdy the box is. With all that tearing around I thought that the box would just collapse. Instead it showed no signs of wear and tear.
Both mums, Trudy and Liberty, were impressed by the kit. They thought that it would be a great birthday present. They also though that if you had the doors and windows cut out you could use it to entertain children at a birthday party. We spent ages and ages decorating ours. Great idea as I am sure lots more children will be partying at home these days.
The kit cost 27.50 and certainly gave lots and lots of fun and quality time together to make it great value for money. Thanks to me eager teams of helpers: Joshua, Charlotte, Eva, Nate, Rebecca and Fia.
Here’s our finished project!
