Whenever we get one of our Kids Night In Boxes in the mail, my kids beg me to open it.  We’ve been receiving them for the last five months and each month they learn something new in a fun way through hands-on activities, books, music and food.  This month we got to do activities centered around an Under the Sea theme.

First off, we read a book called Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle.  We have a couple of other books from this same author and my kids love the simple stories and colorful artwork.  This book was one I hadn’t seen or heard of before, about some of the fish in the ocean where the father takes care of the eggs until they are ready to hatch.  My kids were entertained and we all learned some new things!

Next up was the art activity which carried the theme of the seahorse into it.  There were simple, step-by-step instructions for how to draw a basic seahorse that my kids (ages 6 and 4) were able to follow easily.  Then they learned a new art technique called bleeding tissue paper, where they ripped pieces of tissue paper into smaller pieces, placed them on top of their seahorse drawings, and then added water on top using a paintbrush.  When they removed the tissue paper, the color had bled onto their seahorse creating a fun and unique picture.  This is an activity that I can definitely see us repeating!

While we let the pictures dry, we went into the front room and did some sea animal yoga.  I really like that the directions are so simple and the kids laughed and had fun pretending to be different animals.  We finished up by using some stickers that were included to create an under the sea scene while the kids ate their goldfish shaped cookie that came in their box.

Something I love about the Kids Night In Boxes is that the entire box only takes about an hour to do.  It’s a perfect amount of time because it keeps their attention, plus it’s a great way to spend time with my kids learning something new, laughing together and making memories.

  1. This box looks too cute! I love Eric Carle books and they even had little craft so the kids could make their own art! I am the worst at coming up with crafts so this would be awesome for us!

  2. Oh my gosh I wish they had these adorable kid boxes while my son was growing up! But, I will keep it in mind if I ever get grandkids!

  3. I am a fan of subscription boxes! I didn’t know that there’s one for kids too. It’s a perfect box to keep them occupied for at least an hour. And, the activities look fun to do as well.
