The BabbaBox May Be My Only Chance To Keep Up With My Daughter’s Creativity

My husband is the most creative person I know. Not only is he helping the kids build a two-story backyard fort, he imagined and sewed a banana costume for Halloween and painted The Grinch for Christmas.

So when my daughter was born painting, drawing and by age three, designed a skirt, I was not surprised. I was, however, already out of my element, which is why I jumped at the chance to try the BabbaBox.

BabbaCoBox
The founder of BabbaCo plus our box, which was themed the Sun, Moon and Stars.

Each box has 2-3 crafts with every supply, even basics like glue, included, plus a book, interactive digital downloads and a parent surprise gift. (See this video for further explanation.)

The first craft we did was a paper mache moon nightlight, which I would have never taken on whim, but the directions were easy to follow and everything we need was already here. Scott, N and I had a fun, messy time ,and the finally product is impressive — pretty much the perfect craft.

Finally, we got down to business.

It was a two-day project, but in between we read about the moon and stars and sun.

And we now own the moon.

We loved the crafts so much that we are asking for a 3-month subscription for Christmas for my daughter (shh, don’t tell her). I think that’s the highest recommendation I can give this time of year.

PS. Although I was thinking of my daughter when I signed up for this sponsored post, my son and I now go out every night in our pjs to look at the moon with binoculars as we track it on the lunar calendar — both of which (the binoculars and the lunar calendar) came with our BabbaBox, too.


BabbaBox is a theme-based box delivered to your door that allows you to enjoy a little convenience and inspiration! As any parent can attest, the most important thing you can give to your child is quality time. BabbaBox makes this possible by helping you to save time, money, & mindspace.

Just think! Fantastic monthly activities with ALL the materials for kids ages 3-6. Included in the box are 3 projects + 1 bestselling book + digital download + parent surprise gift!

The best part? Babbabox makes a GREAT unique gift during the holiday season.

I chose this product because of my daughter’s love of arts and crafts. The opinions and text are mine until you hit the black line.

  1. Just yesterday I was lamenting being terrible at crafting because I never know where to start. Definitely checking this out.
