Let’s see what we got in the May box!
The box was packed to the brim with all the educational crafts activities.
Right off the bat, you can clearly see the theme of the month! All about building robots. Kind of fun, even for a 3 year old.
The other side of the instructions give us a little introduction and help explain the kids in easy to understand words, the concept of robotics.
This month we also got a set of stickers that would be required for each activity.
Each box comes with 3 activities that are bagged separately, so they are so much easier to locate.
We started off with building our MagnaBot.
Activity #1: Magnabot
The instructions along with the pictures helped tremendously and was easy enough for us to build our robot. It will be a breeze for an older kid such as 5+ years old to do on his/her own. For my 3 year old, putting on the stickers was definitely the most fun part! 😉
We got to test out our magnabot by putting the magnet underneath the board and making it finish this maze.
My daughter was totally fascinated by how the magnet helped move the robot around. A great little introduction for her about magnets and how they work.
Activity # 2: GlideBot
Another fun activity this month was about building a robot with the cardboard (from the box itself). Loved that this was a total green project.
Our robot all sticker’ed out! haha.
Saving the best activity for the last! – ArtBot!
Activity # 3: ArtBot
This was by far the most fun activity for both of my kids, and they are fairly young, so I can imagine the older kids having fun with this as well!
We had to attach the provided markers to the cup and then leave the Hexbug under the cup so it can move around – thereby creating “art”.
We loved this Hexbug! It has actually become a family “pet” now haha. The moment you turn it on, it instantly feels like a very-real bug moving around.
This was literally hours of fun for my kiddos — they couldn’t stop playing with it. Definitely a keeper, and I am totally okay with this kind of a bug haha. 😉
Overall, we really enjoyed Green Kids Crafts projects this month. They were educational but mostly fun and exciting! While you get 3 activities in the box, Green Kids Crafts also provide tons of ideas for online projects that are available for free for subscribers. For my 3 year old, this month’s box provided a perfect blend of learning as well as entertainment. STEAM based projects along with eco-friendly materials can provide hours of fun for kids without them resorting to screen-time!
