My boys love getting post. For all this technology and living in the digital age talk, they cannot be more excited about getting snail mail. So when two Willow and Wild subscription boxes with their names on landed on the mat. They were beyond excitement.
The only problem with this excitement was it was six o’clock when us three stepped through the door and I had all of fifteen minutes to get dinner on the table.
They took the boxes off to the playroom and tore them open. The eldest was pleased with the addition colour by numbers and the word-search and happily occupied himself as I got to work in the kitchen.
The youngest of the other hand, went straight for the seeds and came bounded into the Kitchen to insist that we plant them now! So we had a discussion about holding off until the snow was gone at least. Then he was happy enough to repeatedly tell me that ‘these are for growing’ (Poppy seeds), ‘these are for growing and eating’ (Peas) and ‘these are for the birds’.
What was inside the Willow and Wild Subscription box?
- Grow your own Peas and Poppies seeds
- Step by step planting and growing cards
- Peas recipe card
- Make your own bird feeder kit
- Nature walk card
- Pea science
- Finger painting
- Addition colouring
- Word search
It was a thumbs up from the boys. Snail mail plus fun activities will always be a winner. My thoughts; priced at £12.99 for the month by month subscription is a bit steep. However there are discounts for signing up for longer. What I did really like about this box compare to others is the longevity of the activities. By planting and growing the seeds and making the bird feeder the boys will continue to enjoy it long after the puzzles have been done.
I was sent the Willow and Wild subscription boxes for free in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. You can find out more by reading my Advertising and disclosure policy.
