Let’s see what we got inside this fun box!
This month’s theme revolved around the Hispanic culture – always fun to learn about new cultures!
You also receive an information card that lists all the items in your box. And this is always very helpful because sometimes it’s hard to keep track of items in the box.
Mini TP Piñata kit and pastry brush
The inclusion of a baking tool for the kids is a nice touch to personalize the box and would only add to their excitement to create something.
Round Is A Tortilla – A Book of Shapes by Roseanne Thong
I love how everything in the box is so nicely color coordinated with the theme of the book. There is definitely a lot of thought put into creating a fun unboxing experience for kids!
What I loved about this picture book was that it gave a tour of the Latino culture while teaching about shapes at the same time in a fun way. Totally apt for a 3 year old as she was easily able to identify the hidden shapes everywhere.
The rhyming also made for an entertaining read. Also since there were a bunch of Spanish words used throughout the book – towards the end, a glossary was included explaining all the words in English. So it is a perfect book for those who are new to Spanish as well, such as my 3 year old.
Mini TP Roll Pinatas
After reading our book, we decided to make our piñata. You do require some additional items from the home such as scissors, toilet paper roll, tape etc. But the instructions clearly lists what you need, making it easier to follow through.
A fun, hands-on activity for a 3 year old and her little sister (the other tiny hand you see) 😉 – it was easy enough for my 3 year old to put together. I just had to cut out the fringe into strips and my daughter was able to stick it on the tube.
Not a very happening piñata but this is what happens when a 3 year old insists on doing everything on their own. 🙂 Overall, it was a fun hands-on activity that kept my daughter busy for a good while. 😉
Flour Tortillas & Cinnamon Crisps
Next, we hopped on to the baking part and my daughter just couldn’t contain her excitement. She absolutely loves to help us out in the kitchen in her own little way. We do bake cupcakes and cookies all the time, but this was our first time making a home-made tortilla!
The recipe card cleverly connects the theme of the book and the recipes given along with providing detailed descriptions of what is being made. We got two recipes to make: tortilla and cinnamon crips with the second recipe being an extension of the first one. Easy peezy for the kiddos and tons of fun at the same time.
My 3 year old had a ball of a time rolling out those tortillas! She made sure to roll out all of them. 🙂
Sadly we weren’t able to take a picture of our final product, but suffice it to say, the tortillas were gobbled up pretty quickly! 😉
Overall, Bookakery turned out to be a unique and an entertaining kids box. It is a perfect subscription for little bookworms and budding bakers. And more than anything, I think it is a great way to spend some quality time with your kids, while keeping them away from the screen as they discover the world through this fun combination of baking and reading.
