Busy Bodies Boxes

Themed activity boxes for kids aged 1-5

Busy Bodies Boxes sent Our Mummy Life a box to feature & review, and I must say they are AWESOME!! The company itself is based in the UK but they ship to Europe too (£6.99 shipping cost)

For me personally, I hate having to think up new crafts all the time & buy all the materials which then result in so much waste - so this was the perfect answer. A new box of crafts each month (£15 per box) always including between 6-9 crafts which I can spread out over the 4 weeks till the next box. Everything is pre packaged & includes all materials needed. For me, it promoted time with my children, developing their skills & just having fun!

Busy Bodies Boxes do a different theme each month, the one we received was 'Autumn' for October and was filled with seasonally related crafts, of which a few are showcased in the video above. The boxes are packaged for 3 different age groups:

1-2 Years of Age: £15

  • Attention span and concentration at your toddler’s level
  • Milestone development
  • Speech development
  • Gross motor development (large muscle groups) as well as fine motor development (small muscle groups)
  • Sensory development
  • Messy games ensure that your toddler can process sensory inputs and function in society
  • Stimulation through fun, the learning happens automatically

2-3 Years of Age: £15

  • Attention span and concentration at your toddler’s level
  • Emotional development
  • Social skills expanded through the encouragement of speech development
  • Gross Motor skills help your toddler to get rid of this energy to help improve concentration
  • Fine motor skills are very important for the development of your toddler’s ability to plan as well as his/her independence 
  • Building relationships

3-4 Years of Age: £15

  • Attention span and concentration on your child’s level
  • Better memory development
  • Gross Motor skills help your child to get rid of this energy to help improve concentration
  • Fine motor skills that include hand- and drawing skills, that will help improve your child’s pencil grip 
  • Preparation for using scissors, drawing shapes and recognizing numbers and letters
  • Problem solving skills

My boys are aged 3 & 4.5 years of age, and they thoroughly enjoyed doing all the crafts! They are packaged very neatly, into separate bags for each craft, including easy-to-follow instructions 

"Busy Bodies Boxes is a unique concept and something new and fun which we are introducing to the UK. To moms who are desperately looking for educational activities to stimulate their little busy bodies but without the hassle of hunting down materials or having to store away left overs. We aim for all activities to use up all materials, we even use the box at the end!

Each activity stimulates a different development phase; such as gross motor development, fine motor development, sensory skills and creative skills.
