~Good evening! We are still up-north for the long weekend and the boys are having a ball. It’s been super windy, but it has only rained for about 30 minutes so we’ll take it. All this fresh air makes my allergies crazy (you can see the pollen sitting on the lake), so thank goodness for allergy medicine!

~I posted a review on my Eco Flower Mystery Box(es), but I thought I would share it again here too!  I am so happy with mine and wish I would have ordered more. I hope this offer these again soon.  They have a special coupons & sales group on Facebook with all the scoop, so if they do it again, we’ll know first!

~Have you tried Garden Veggie Chips? I like the veggie straws, but these Pringle like chips are WAY better.  We tried the Cheddar and the Sour Cream & Onion and hands down, the Sour Cream & Onion are the best.  SO good.  Those with the WalMart Clear American sparkling water?  THE BEST!

I knew we’d have some down time up-north this weekend so I brought this up-north to work on. Don’t mind the floor in the pictures – it’s under construction.

Koala Crate May 2016 Subscription Box Review + Coupon Code
The May 2016 Koala Crate theme is “birds” and included three projects “bird wings”, “bird mask” and “clay bird sculpture”:

Project #1 – Bird Mask

Koala Crate May 2016 Subscription Box Review + Coupon Code

Koala Crate May 2016 Subscription Box Review + Coupon Code

The first project we worked on was “bird mask” – “create a feathery bird mask with interchangable beaks“.  The project was low on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involved “discovering” and “creating”.

 

Koala Crate May 2016 Subscription Box Review + Coupon CodeThe mask turned out adorable!  I love that the mask had three different beaks to use with it.  It was easy to make and W (he’s 4) looked so cute!

Project #2 – Clay Bird Sculpture

The second project was “clay bird sculpture” – “mold your very own bird friend“.  It was medium on the messiness scale, medium on the grownup involvement scale and involved “moving – fine” and “creating”.

Koala Crate May 2016 Subscription Box Review + Coupon Code

Koala Crate May 2016 Subscription Box Review + Coupon CodeI feel like maybe B (my husband) had a little more to do with sculpting this bird than W did ;). It turned out great though and W did tell me he did the eyes and the “flowers” (that’s what he called the feathers.

Project #3 – Bird Wings

Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
Ohh, it looked pretty good!

Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
Our May 2016 Sprouting Threads included the following pieces (all new – none rethreaded):

~Kitestrings Blue Chino Shorts with Sail Boats ($44): These are really cute, but they are too young for L.  Now my 4 year-old?  Yeah, I could see him wearing these.  But L’s 8 and there is no way I could talk him into wearing them.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Tooby Doo Red Chino Shorts ($36): I love these shorts and so did L!  They are red (his favorite color) and fit perfect.  They also aren’t too heavy or thick so they are ideal for summer.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Tooby Doo Orange Chino Shorts ($36): These shorts seem more lightweight than the red ones.  I don’t like them quite as much, but they are still pretty cute.  And I love the color.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Jack Thomas Red Plaid Button Down ($36): I love this shirt! It’s red, white and blue and perfect for summer.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Wes and Willy Plaid Shorts ($18): I like these shorts, but again I feel like they are too young for L.  For my 4 year-old they would be great, but for my 8 year-old, not so much.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Andy & Evan T-Shirt: This shirt matches the above shorts.  L does like this shirt (I’m not a huge fan though), so we’re keeping it.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Joules Multi-Screen Print T-Shirt ($34): I love this!  I wouldn’t let L wear this to school (I don’t want to be the reason all of 2nd grade is saying “So Long Sucker”), but I think the colors are fun and the print is great!
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review
~Tooby Doo White Polo: We always need a classic white polo shirt so this will come in handy.  White shirts and little boys don’t mix too well, but they always look so cute in them.
Sprouting Threads May 2015 Subscription Box Review

As I mentioned, if you keep at least two of the items your $20 styling fee will be deducted from your purchases. I was happy with these selections and think this is great for back to school shopping.  You can opt for monthly or seasonal deliveries and can get between 2 and 5 outfits per delivery (your choice) so it really is tailored to your needs.

Bramble Box May 2016 Review

~Final Product: Flower Shop: We did this project up-north and everyone helped to make some of the flowers.  The tissue paper ones were easy to make, but we had a little trouble with the cupcake paper ones – it took my 14 year-old cousin to figure it out. It looked cool once done though.

SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review

The May 2016 SnackSack included the following items:

~Blue Corn Cabo Chips: Cabo Chips are non-GMO and gluten-free.  They are okay alone, but with salsa and guac?  Amazing!
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Pasta Chips – Mediterranean Sea Salt: I love Pasta Chips!  I discoverd them thanks to subscription boxes and I have been a fan since. They contain real pasta and while I would describe them as more of a cracker than a chip, they are still really good.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~ONA Cookies Peanut Butter: These are chewy peanut butter cookies.  They are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and soy-free.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze: I just can’t get into pouches.  The texture isn’t for me.  One of my kids (probably L) will have (and enjoy) this.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Barney Almond Butter (Crunchy): I used to not enjoy crunchy peanut butter when I was a kid, but I like it now.  This is a snack pack so it’s perfect to take to work or school as a snack.  Peanut butter isn’t the easiest thing to clean out of tupperware, so snack packs like this are the way to go.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Chic-a-Peas – Sea Salt: I like baked chickpeas way better than cooked ones. These are gluten-free, non-GMO and make for a tasty snack.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Raw Rev Glo Dark Chocolate Expresso Crunch: This bar is “peanut-free with rich dark chocolate chips and a satisfying whole-coffee-bean crunch”.  These bars are growing on me.  They still aren’t as tasty as like a LUNA bar or something, but still good.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Laughing Giraffe Organics Snakaroons: I usually like these, but I wasn’t a fan today. They had just too much of a coconut taste.  I know they are coconut snacks, but still.  LOL.  They are non-GMO, gluten-free raw and vegan.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Fru-licious Fruit & Cream Smoothie: We currently have these freezing so the kids can have them this weekend!  They are made with real fruit juice and come in two flavors – banana and strawberry.
SnackSack May 2016 Subscription Box Review
~Olympos Pitted Green Olives: B loves these and can scarf them down in about two seconds. I’ve never been into olives, but if you are, try these!
