We received Toddibox early December but only had time to explore the activities when I had to stay home to look after the sick cub. On hindsight, glad I have this to keep him entertained!
Thaddeus had been so eager to check out what is in the box ever since it arrived and was so excited when I finally let him open it up! It is a box full of Christmas-related activities and a book for December.
I LOVE how each activity is nicely packed into individually sealed bags! So neat! Inside each bag of activity, there are the materials you will need for the activity and of course, the instructions on how to go about doing the activity with the child.
Because we are going to put up our Christmas tree before this weekend, I thought to give him a little preview on how to decorate a Christmas tree with a Ten Fingers activity, i.e. an art and craft activity.
I demonstrated to the cub while giving instructions on how to do up the tree and was pleased to see him keeping up with the activity. The two of us shared some funny moments when we couldn’t get the pom-poms and pipecleaner to stick. Fortunately I have tape glue in my scrapbooking workstation!
It will probably be less messy if we had used tape glue right from the start but I wanted the cub to get a feel (and touch) of glue and how it works. Hence I let him apply glue on the Christmas tree cutout and try to stick the pom-poms, sequins and pipecleaner first. Only when the decorations are not able to stick, then I applied tape glue.
It is of little wonder how Toddibox comes up with these interesting activities as the team comprises of a group of trained educators! I think Toddibox works great for full-time working parents as they help to provide meaningful activities to do with our children. These activities are hand-selected and kid-tested to promote caregiver-child bonding, develop creativity and encourage language development.
