My Gecko Box – Craft Subscription Box Review

Recently the children have been learning about Rainforests. Little Man and Little Miss have had great fun discovering what plants and animals can be found in the Rainforest. To finish off our topic we were kindly sent a Rainforest Discovery Box from My Gecko Box. The children spent a happy few hours creating their own Rainforest diorama complete with a Tropical bird, Caiman, Snakes and various creatures made with pom poms.

My Gecko Box Craft Rainforest Subscription Box

Everything needed to complete the crafts are included in the discovery box, the only thing we needed to supply was scissors. The box which doubles as the diorama contains five individually wrapped crafts, a fun fact sheet and a letter from Mr Gecko. Each activity has an easy to follow instruction leaflet with clear illustrations which are perfect for early readers. The instructions include a guide as to how messy the craft is and how much adult help is needed.  This was very helpful in helping me to decide which craft to do and when.

As there was so much to do we spread the activities out over a few days.  It was useful having the crafts wrapped individually as it meant we could just choose a bag and get started. There was no preparation needed and no searching for supplies.  The children had a lot of fun creating their Rainforest. They especially loved creating the snakes and painting the caiman – I thought the use of the bubble wrap was very effective.  They were so proud of the finished creation and learned a lot in the process. This was the perfect way to round off our Rainforest topic.

My Gecko Box sell a range of subscription boxes for children aged 3-10 from the Little Explorer boxes to the larger Discovery boxes. You can purchase a one off box or subscribe to the box of your choice. They also do Party Activity Packs, Wedding favours and classroom packs. Gift cards can also be purchased to enable your recipient to choose their own box. Prices start at an extremely reasonable 5.95. All of their products are educational and fun covering STEAM, literacy, fine motor skills and more.

    These look fantastic! We get toucan boxes at the moment but these look so good I may have to look at swapping!

    This looks brilliant, especially with the diaroma being part of the box. I’m sure that my two children would love to make the individual parts and then bring them together #kidsandkreativity

    That looks like a great little box and lots of fun too! #KidsandKreativity
