Giveaway: Babbabox

—Giveaway Now Closed—

This giveaway is sponsored by BabbaCo.com.

As much as I love to craft/papercraft/make stuff with my hands, I’m not that great at remembering to get my kids involved. My friend Marie of Make and Takes is my hero at getting the kids involved. For this very reason is why I have fallen for the Babbabox, the monthly subscription box that comes to your house full of all the goodies you need to entertain, help educate and engage with your kids. These boxes (geared for ages 3-6) show up on your doorstep neatly organized and coordinated with a theme.

My kids were so excited to open our box. The theme of our box was rainbows. Each box comes with:

- 2-3 hands-on projects/supplies
- an ‘explore’ project which encourages kids to engage with the world
- a book
- and a prepaid download.

Everything is clearly labeled, making it super simple for the parents to move from one activity to the next.

Here’s what came in our box:

- everything to make a rainbow sunhat
- a QR code to easily download a coordinating app for your iPad/iPod/iPhone
- a rainbow prism (this was our “explore” activity)
- bubble wand making kit (plus coloring pages)
- a book for story time
- and an umbrella (a fun bonus!)

We first got started on the rainbow sunhat.

We cut small pieces of colored tissue paper into squares and laid them on top of the damp cotton sun hat.

Following the directions, we then sprayed with a squirt bottle the tissue papers and they ‘bled’ color onto the hat, making it a “rainbow sunhat”. My kids loved doing this.

We then laid it out to dry. Once dry you do the same thing to the other side.

Moving on, we played around with the rainbow prism. :)

The prism was a fun way to learn about rainbows and understand how light and sunlight are needed to make a rainbow. Aiden loved trying to catch the rainbows that Avery made.

Following suggestions in the box, we also made rainbows with the sprayer on our hose.

We then moved onto the making of bubble wands. This was a great simple craft in that it also helped with shape recognition.

We then moved outside to make bubbles !

We tried to see if we could see rainbows in the big bubbles we blew.

We finished off with a book about rainbows. It was a cute book.

Overall, we loved our Babbabox. I love the idea of having that element of surprise each month show up on your doorstep in a neatly well organized box. If you really think about the money you spend each month to keep your kids entertained, engaged and to help educate them, something like Babbabox really is an investment. It helps you slow down and really engage with your kids. It was a hit at our house, and if you have young kids at your house, I’m sure it would be a hit at yours as well.

BabbaCo would like to giveaway one box to one lucky NoBiggie reader. Just like our box was a surprise to us, yours will be too (fun!). If you’d like to win, leave a comment here on this post telling me why you’d love to win (something about Babbabox that sounds like fun to you). The winner of this giveaway will be chosen via Random.org and announced on this post. Giveaway ends Wednesday, August 1st at 10 PM.

Congrats Heidi! Lucky #24:

    What a fun idea! I love it. Who doesn’t enjoy getting mail. And kids don’t get bills. lol. Thanks for introducing the brand…

    I’ve heard of these boxes before. I would love to win one. I’m a former teacher and an active crafter. It’s funny how easy it is to do with other people and thier kids, and hard for me to do with my own kids. Just this morning my kids were looking at some birthday decorations I made. One of them was falling apart. My eight year old said, “don’t worry we can fix it with duct tape.” They have been spending too much time with daddy and not enough time with me learning all the cool crafting tools.

    What a great business idea! I’d love to win one for my niece. She is expecting a baby sister this fall and I think this would be a special present that she and Auntie Morgan can play with after baby comes.

  16. 16

    I will be student teaching this year-what a fun thing to introduce to my class….if I can keep it away from my own kids.

  17. 17

    My 2 yr old daughter loves to get packages in the mail (I think she gets it from her online-shopping crazed mama!) and she has such a thirst for knowledge. I love that they pair a book with the projects. She really gets excited about books and will relate all sorts of things to even the simplest ones! (Look Mommy! A pink cupcake- like Pink Delicious!” (aka Pinkalicious)

    I’d love to try this out!

    My fantastic sister just shared the Babbabox yesterday and my super sweet Aunt showed me this giveaway so thanks to those ladies, I’m here today! My son Patrick LOVES Crafts and exploring and has a really great attention spam for these types of projects.

Thanks for the codes and the preview into the Babbabox! I appreciate the opportunity to enter to win! :)

    My son & I love to do crafts together & I am always racking my brain trying to think of something. He’s ADD/ADHD so it has got to be somthing that is constantly “moving”…this would be perfect! Thank you for the chance to win.

  45. 45

    This is the coolest thing EVER! I have never heard of this and am completely fascinated by this brilliant idea. I think Babbabox will help me (save me from the headache) in planning craft days with my kids. I gotta check out their site… like right now.

  46. 46

    What a great idea! I would love to try this with my girls! I enjoyed getting them engaged in projects rather than watching tv! anytime! love to win it! I saw the website and the gratitude box looks like a lot of fun! not only do they get to get crafty but they also lear some important life lessons along the way!

    Kristin Bogle says:

    I’d love to win this for my three year old daughter because I’m too busy pinning fun things to do to have any time to actually do them! LOL Just kidding…I’d just love to have the activities already planned out for me (and all the materials gathered), and I know my daughter would be so excited to open it and get some mommy-time to do these activities while daddy occupies the baby.

    I’d love to win this for my son. He’s 4 years old and an only child. He LOVES art projects and reading, so we could do the BabbaBox activities together <33. He's amazing with my iPhone and other digital devices. Kids really are amazing :) Your children are beautiful and this was a really great review! I love this Rainbow theme!! I still remember the first time I ever saw a prism–my friend in 3rd grade had one and we played with it all day lol. Thanks a bunch! I subbed to you, as well :)

    Melissa H. says:

    I’d love to win a babbabox because it is something that I would definitely want my parents to get me of I was still a child :) It’s hard for me to think of fun, learning activities for my son, so the babbabox takes all the stress of planning away!

  51. 51

    Babbabox looks like a fun, entertaining treasure chest of activities. My boys would be thrilled with it! I like how it ties a theme through literature, art, and science. What a cool product!

  52. 52

    This would be so great for my nieces and nephew, Its not just arts and crafts theres also learning involved. Sounds great!

  53. 53

    In today’s world of high speed electronic games, this would be SUCH a breath of fresh air to introduce my grandchildren to and a “hands on” experience for them to enjoy! What a GREAT concept. Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing and generous prize and I will be telling all of my friends about the unique Babbabox!

  54. 54

    Besides the big fun of getting a package in the mail…my kids (5 and 3) would be delighted about a box of fun activities for all of us to do together!
