Once again, my BabbaBox magically appeared on my doorstep with no prior notice. I am guessing that maybe I just can’t figure out where to find the tracking on the BabbaBox site? But whatever, we were pleased to see it pop up last night (it shipped UPS).
This month’s BabbaBox theme was “Baking Together” which was totally perfect for us since we love to bake together. It actually arrived no less than 20 minutes after we were done baking cookies. Figures!
The box included the following projects:
~create: Family Tree Apron
~create: Kid Recipe Box
~explore: Baking Set
~storytell: Froggy Bakes A Cake
~connect: Cupcake-a-roo App
And now, the details:
create: Family Tree Apron
The kit includes all the projects to draw a tree trunk on the apron and then everyone in the family gets their hands traced to make the tree. I know L is going to LOVE making the apron, but there is not a chance in the world I will get him to wear it. I am certainly going to try my hardest to make it happen, but I am almost 100% sure he won’t do it. Dressing up like a girl at school is cool, but wearing an apron. No. Way. Depending on how this turns out (and of course I am expecting it to be amazing), I might somehow frame it and hang it in the basement by his pretend kitchen.
create: Kid Recipe Box:
This project looks totally messy and totally fun. Anything that includes glue is a big hit here. I imagine our box is going to include every square of fabric that is included in the kit. And the recipe cards that are included are super cute. They use pictures and words so that kids can read them too. L always reads me the back of the brownie mix, so now he can reads the cards too! Great idea!
explore: Baking Set:
This is far and away my favorite part of this month’s box. The suggested project to go along with these items is to make your family tree using sugar cookie dough. I’m not sure if we will do that, but I know these will get a ton of use. I love little kids kitchen utensils and have even been known to use them myself on occasion.
storytell: Froggy Bakes a Cake:
We have loved every single book included in our BabbaBox so far and I know this will be no exception. I really love that they include a book every month!
connect: Cupcake-a-roo App:
I’ve never heard of this app, but I am excited about downloading it for L. He loves the baking apps (we have a few), so I am guessing whatever this is, he’ll be into it.
mom gift: Bakers Labels:
These will be cute for the holidays when B takes a plate of cookies to work or when we are assigned a dish for a party. These will for sure get used!
