Okay firstly how bright and cheery is the box itself? I loved the colorful packaging that instantly illustrates that this box is all about themed imaginative play.
Everything inside our box this May. The theme this month was all about Medieval Times – how fun! 🙂
We also received a very detailed and colorful information booklet with more activities inside. Each activity also had its separate instruction card to make it so much easier to follow through. And what I personally really liked was that the instruction card showed the level of messiness, difficulty and the time involved in each activity.
Next month’s sneak peek is there too – the month of June is going to be all about Discovering Dinosaurs (so exciting!).
My 4-year-old instantly got her pen out and started working on the activities in her booklet – there were matching activities, seek & find, just perfect for the 3-6 age group! 🙂
Let’s check out how our medieval time projects turned out. Each activity/craft is numbered so it made sense to follow the sequence. 🙂
Activity #1: Dress Like A Knight
Everything required to make our tunic.
Applying emblem and decorating their tunic with the stickers – all felt material is used. However, we felt that the felt stickers were a bit tricky to peel.
Nonetheless, we prevailed and finished our tunic and the knight helmet. 😀 Already pretending to be a knight here while playing in her tent. 🙂
Hopping onto the next activity.
Activity #2: Construct A Castle
Everything required to build our castle – my girls loved the addition of the (2) peg people, certainly, add more of a real touch to the castle, right? 🙂
While the instructions were pretty clear, we did run into some issues while building the castle. However, my 4-year-old wanted to build it herself, so I just let her use her creativity to see what she comes up with. Turned out just fine, I’d say. 😉
After dressing up their peg people using the felt stick-on clothes, the kiddos had a ball of a time pretend-playing.
Ladies and gentlemen, the princess and the knight are ready! Can’t get over how adorable the princess looks with her crown.:D
Activity #3: Train Like A Knight
Now that the Knight was ready, it was time for the Knight to prepare to defend the castle. So it was time to get the training cards out and practice sword fighting skills.
The instructions for our Tablas game – it came with tokens, dice, marker and a game card. It was actually quite easy and really got the kids in the knight & sword fighting mode – which is what Kids Wonder Box is all about – imaginative play!
Activity #4: Dragon Egg Quest
This was more of a hands-on activity as it was all about getting your hands messy while playing with the model magic, dye and stones.
Once the Dragon Egg was “beautified” – the object of this activity was to return it to the dragon’s cave on the map. The back of the map had all the steps that needed to act out our journey to return the egg.
After the dragon egg’s quest, we hopped onto our next activity.
Activity #5: Build A Catapult
Everything required to complete our project.
My 4-year-old was able to put the catapult together herself!
And then it was just a matter of building the target and practicing the siege skills! It was fun to shoot the pom poms to see if we hit the target or not. 🙂
What a perfect way to learn about the Medieval Times for kids ages 3-6. The Kid Wonder Box was filled with DIY activities for kids and really took them on a ride to the Middle Ages as they learned about kings, queens, knights and princesses in a fun and educational way. I found the instructions very precise and colorful and that made it all the more fun to work through each activity. My 4-year-old also had way too much fun building the castle and going on a Dragon’s Egg quest. Just what the kids would need this summer to keep them happily occupied while having fun with endless imaginative play options!
