Looking for some ideas for some indoor crafting fun? We just discovered the perfect crafting kit for the kids with the CitiBox, a new monthly subscription service from Citibabes.
Featuring fun and engaging activities for the home, the new CitiBox is designed for kids 18 months to age 6 where they will discover crafts, stories, and various pre-assembled activities that is sure to provide hours of fun.
This includes hands-on activities for kids of all ages, including painting and collage to help enhance your 18-month-old's language and fine motor skills. Projects for two year olds will be multi-step using a wide range of materials which will promote language and fine motor skill development. As an independent three year old projects will focus on self-expression and creativity. Four-year-old Citiboxes incorporate challenging techniques that will promote creativity to keep your child engaged while broadening horizons. For the oldest artists, ages five to six, itʼs important to find an artistic outlet that focuses attention through technique and concept; projects are inspired by modern artists and cultures and use a wide variety of materials. CitiBox focuses on the theme your children are learning about in their CitiSchool classes and reinforces the thematic unit with a new and different project.
I recently tested this out with my six and three-year old daughters where they enjoyed learning, hands-on activities, coloring and more. For the 2s kit, we started when I read a poem and then created two projects about the self. This included mirror reflection project and a project to create part of the face. With all of the detailed instructions and images of the completed project included, my daughter quickly went to work - glueing, coloring and using the enclosed stickers. My older daughters project was also similar with a poem and two projects where she made puppets and a paper doll. They both also had a bonus project where they could transform the box the projects came with into a city. This was inspired with cut-out windows and doors that my daughter also used, along with magazines and crayons.
Personally, I loved how everything was clearly labeled, cut out for us and included detailed instructions to get started. It also included lessons that they could grasp and projects that were engaging, enriching and simply fun!
With our ever busy schedules, we love these craft and activity boxes as a way for kids to enjoy an educational, at-home art experience that is uniquely tailored to specific age groups.
