We need tons of ideas for rainy days. Things that don’t involve the television and involve the kids minds. At least, I prefer to have educational things to fill their time with, mixed in with some tv of course. I’m not crazy. We received a Happy Trunk box and I was greatly impressed with the contents. Everything in the box was higher quality than I expected and I never expected the response I had out of Miles. HE was SO INTO IT. And it’s the perfect rainy day activity solution.
Happy Trunk is the solution harried parents who want to do more than plunk their kids in front of the TV or video game need. Happy Trunk is a box filled with craft and science projects that will keep your kids entertained for hours. My children needed help with the activities, but mostly he was able to do it after I told him what to do. He has such a good time. We received the Under the Sea box.
The first project we pulled out was to make an ocean and fill it with shells and under the sea creatures. Included in the box were cards that I could read to Miles about the under the sea creatures. He absorbed all of the information.
When he was done he proudly hung them on the door so he could watch his fish and show them off to his dad when he came home from work. The kits are delivered to your door each month and include all the supplies and directions for three or four craft projects and a science experiment.
Each month has a different theme to the activities and the gender neutral trunks are available for ages 3-7 or 8-11. Kids love getting their own mail and Mom loves the educational entertainment the kits bring. The projects chosen for the kits are developed by a team that includes a child psychologist, teachers and a designer, and all are tested by a panel of kids before being deemed Happy Trunk worthy. The Happy Trunk can be ordered as a monthly subscription or a one-time gift.
The next project was for making a jelly fish. Miles again, got very creative and made an adorable jelly fish.
I’m really pleased with Happy Trunk and strongly considering a monthly subscription.
We received a sample.
