Wummelbox Review & Giveaway


Looking for some educational and fun activities for the kids this Summer? Consider Wummelbox, a new European-designed craft and activities subscription service for kids ages 3-8 yrs. Each Wummelbox comes with all the materials and instructions to make 3-4 projects around a particular theme. For the purposes of this review, we were given a food and nutrition Wummelbox, and it was a big hit! Added bonus — I’m hosting a giveaway for a Wummelbox (see below)!!!

The kids enjoyed coloring their own play money for a pretend grocery store! Wummelbox even includes project ideas for the box it comes in — in this case, a cash register is made from the box. Yay for crafting with recyclables!

We found the materials to be from well-known brands, and they were high quality. Wummelbox is sure to include everything needed to complete each project, down to the glue dots and scissors! Many of the materials can be used for more than one project (like the markers, scissors, and fabric crayons) so this is a great option if you are looking to stock up on craft supplies, or if you like the idea of having everything you need in one convenient box that’s shipped directly to you. The directions for each project are clearly illustrated and easy to understand.

We found the projects were “big” enough for both of the kids to work on. In our case, they each colored some of the play money, sewed some of the play food, colored the diy board game, and each of them decorated one side of the apron with fabric crayons. If you have more than 2 kids, you may want to consider adding additional boxes to your subscription.

Here’s a short video loop showing what came in the box:

The projects and activities in this box included:

* Opening a pretend grocery store to sell handmade fruit and vegetables. Recycling the Wummelbox to turn it into a cash register!

* Becoming a head chef and writing a cookbook. Decorating and personalizing an apron.

* Coloring and playing a board game and learning which foods grow on trees or in the ground. Additional resources are on the Wummelbox website!

* Conducting a food experiment. Making paste for art projects out of potato starch.

Wummelbox Review and Giveaway

This Wummelbox in particular was such a hit with my kids, since they are such BIG fans of pretend play! They could not wait to open up their store, and spent a long time preparing their grocery props, setting up the store, and then playing — taking turns being the store clerk and customer.

Wummelbox subscription packages include:

Try a Wummel, a 1 month subscription priced at $34.95

Little Wummel, 3-month subscription priced at $24.95 per month (perfect for a camp-at-home this Summer)

Big Wummel, a 12-month subscription priced at $19.95 per month.

  11. I love crafting with my nephews because it reminds me of when I used to do it with my little sister! We’d play school, and our favorite was “art class.”

  15. latanya says:

    I love seeing how creative my son can be and how they view certain things.

  16. Allison says:

    I love crafting with my kids (7, 5, and 3) because is so clearly displays the differences in their personalities, talents, and perspectives- give them all the same tools and supplies and they come up with totally different results!

  17. Latisha says:

    I love little surprises like this! They are open ended and bolster creativity while having fun! We love receiving packages from our family so these little packages would make the trips to the mailbox even more exciting!

  23. It is great to sit down and connect with my son while doing crafts. We have some great conversations while being creative.

  24. I love crafting with my son because we both have a good time doing it. I am not very creative so I like products like this where the instructions and materials are all right in front of you.

  25. Allison says:

    I love crafting with my girls because they love it and it is usually relaxing for all of us!

  26. I love creating with my girls for the simplest reason, I love spending quality time with them. I am always amazed at their way of looking at things. They see beauty and wonder where I sometimes see only a plain object. I am a better person because of my girls. They open my eyes to appreciate all the beauty around me.

  27. Jessica M says:

    I don’t have kids yet but watch my niece everyday. I love crafting with her because I love seeing what she can create and the creativity that comes from her.

  29. sborrison says:

    Crafting and pretend play with my 3 year old son is my chance to show him how much fun I can be and its his chance to show me he can listen! ha ha That’s just a side benefit. I love doing it with him because its our special time together!

  30. Susan Ulrich says:

    I love seeing a part of my son that I don’t get to see. Creativity and making things brings out ideas and thoughts that he can’t express otherwise.

  31. I love crafting so I can see the imagination of my kids and it usually gets my oldest talking about her experiences and thoughts…

  32. I love providing that outlet since schools these days have cut back on such things. We love also listening/singing to music WHILE we do our art! Love combining the two! =)

  33. My favorite thing about crafting with my kids is watching how creative and fearless they are about creating. I don’t feel creative in the least and this causes me to be afraid to try. I have learned how to let go quite a bit.
