Little Crumbs 

Continuing on the foodie theme is Little Crumbs, aimed to keep 3-10 year olds entertained and engaged, all the while picking up some valuable cooking skills.  These eco-conscious boxes combine cookery and nature, use plastic-free packaging and each box includes a monthly scavenger hunt (what’s not to love!).  This lovely little brand has just launched Holiday Boxes too!

Mud & Bloom

Inspired by Forest Schools and Montessori education, these seasonal gardening and craft boxes are a great way to keep wildlife-loving little ones busy.  Ideal for 3-8 year olds, Mud & Bloom boxes are created by teachers and support the national curriculum.  Each box contains 4 seasonal gardening and nature craft activities.  Plus there’s nature news and games to teach young minds about animals, plants and insects.  Blooming marvellous we say!

Mud and Bloom subscription boxes

Whether it’s a nice family activity for the weekend or something for the kids to do independently (buying you some much needed ‘me time’), we think subscription boxes are a hassle-free way to keep children entertained, engaged and away from screens.  They make perfect gifts too!
