I first featured Little Crate a few months ago, and we were lucky enough to be sent this months crate again. Little Crate is craft activities in a crate – designed by mothers for mothers and children. Each crate is themed, and comes with everything your child needs to complete the craft activities enclosed. Step by step instructions with diagrams, every material you will need as well as any extras required – glue, scissors, paints, paint brush, ribbons and more.
This months Little Crate was explorer based. Bright idea #1 was making your own telescope and tricorne hat (the hats worn by Captain James Cook and Captain Jack Sparrow) My daughters worked together this month, both constructed the telescope, peeling the gold paper and painting their telescope and then painting the tricorne hat and adding the ribbon and feathers.
Bright idea #2 saw them making their own treasure chest. The beauty of this was the box it was all delivered in was used for the chest, making use of every part of their Little Crate. They crepe papered their treasure chest, glued on a key lock, and then made their treasure map, tearing it’s edges and painting it with a tea bag (included) to give it an authentic look. The girls then drew their secret map and played explorers. All up it was two hours of fantastic craft time, working together and best of all it was something I would never have thought of and they absolutely loved.
We are huge Little Crate fans in this house, and both the girls and I highly recommend it.
