School Holidays… Rainy days... or simply times when you want to enjoy a quiet cuppa - how hard can it be to keep the kids entertained. Yeah, it can be easier when the weather is nice and you can go for bike rides or the play ground. But sometimes an inside activity can be great, and let’s face it, it is not great always just turning on the TV or letting them play with electronic toys. And that’s where Box for Monkeys* is a brilliant concept.

Box for Monkeys is a box loaded with a mix of fun, creative and educational things that you can do while being creative and spending quality time interacting with your kids, as you help them with the various activities in the box.

The box comes with instructions and is very easy to follow, even for those non-crafty mums like myself. And there are heaps of different boxes available targeted at kids aged from 3 years old and all the way up to 12 years.

The box we were sent contained products aimed at kids aged 3-6 years old, so both my boys could join in on the fun.. This is what was in their box;

  • Ridley’s That’s Nose Fun - Box of noses - yeah, a box containing 4 different funny shaped noses, to make the kids - or you - look absolutely hilarious and everyone have a laugh. Perfect for the kids dress-up collection too. 
  • Djeco - Introduction to of Origami - pack containing origami papers with simple step by step instructions for even the youngest beginners to create animals, which can be finished off with the included stickers
  • Nick Bland “A Monster Wrote Me a Letter” - a funny book about a monster that invites himself over. 
  • Clockwork Soldier Create Your Own Pet Hospital - An activity set with a cardboard hospital, a sticker set, a an activity sheet and a garden sheet where the kids can create their own little pet hospital by first building the hospital and then decorating it with the stickers, before helping the animals with various treatments and examinations. 
  • Mini Bug Viewer - a little plastic jar with a removable magnifying lid, so that the kids and put a little bug inside the jar and inspect it closer thanks to the magnifier.
  • Tiger Tribe Dog face mask - a cute little face mask with glasses with a checked pattern, which not only makes the kids look super cute, but also gives then see everything in a funny blurred way. 
  • The box, which everything comes in, is printed on the outside with cute monkeys, and it is perfect for the kids to use for storage of their things afterwards.

This really is such a great idea, and my boys have had so much fun with the different products in the box, which are also very different to anything they’ve ever had to play with before. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them as we were exploring the contents, and I know many of the thing swill be played with again and again, as well as I know the book with become one of the regular ones we read at bed time.

I also love how many different box options are available, for different age groups, as one off boxes, subscriptions, or even special school holiday boxes for the slightly older kids. Also love the the boxes are unisex, and you can also add a sibling for an extra $10 for extra activity products for the second child. I love getting my monthly boxes filled with beauty products, so why not give the kids something fun and entertaining to look forward too as well. So if you’re looking for something fun to do with your kids, make sure to check out Box for Monkeys, - happy monkeys = happy mummy!!
