We received a Winter Wonderland Weekend Box to review last week! We’ve worked with Weekend Box reviewing their fantastic craft boxes before and couldn’t wait to try the Winter Wonderland box.
Each Weekend Box comes with 4 themed STEAM activities along with a booklet of activities and instructions. Each box also comes with a set of stickers for your booklet for each activity as well as fun character sticker cards.
Winter Wonderland Weekend Box
The Winter Wonderland theme comes with some really cool and fun activities. The booklet is full of fun activities like word searches, pictures to colour, stories to complete as well as fun facts and jokes. There are also instructions for each activity in the booklet. Everything you need comes in the activity packs apart from a few items you will already have like pencils, scissors etc.
Pop Up Penguins Craft
The first activity we chose to do was this fun and simple pop-up penguin craft. Male penguins find the smoothest, shiniest pebble and places it in a females nest as a ‘proposal’.
This fun activity involved making 2 penguins that pop up, one presenting the other with a smooth, shiny white stone provided in the pack. We began by cutting out 2 penguin shapes, penguin feet & beaks. Then we stuck the feet on to the bottom of the penguins then made a paper spring as instructions and stuck the head down on to it. We then added the eyes and beaks.
This was a lovely, quick activity that only took 10 minutes and the girls loved making them!
Icy Tea light Holder
Next we made an Icy tea light holder, another really easy but satisfying activity! Using the balloon provided we filled it up with water and froze it for a few hours. We then cut the balloon off, broke a hole in the top, let out the water. We then lit the tea light and popped it inside which created a gorgeous effect!
Rocky Road Snow Bites
A quick and tasty activity like this onev is perfect at the weekend! We simple melted chocolate buttons, mixed in crushed biscuits and marshmallows, sprinkled with icing sugar and let them set in the fridge for half an hour.
We only managed to make two rocky road snow bites but they were delicious! We’ll be making these again ourselves with enough for everyone!
Making Salted snowflakes was quite fun but a little messy! We traded the snowflakes with a glitter glue pen, let it dry slightly, sprinkled it with salt then dropped watercolour paint onto it and let it dry. It created a gorgeous colourful, sparkly effect.
