BabbaCo's Summer Survivor Pack Keeps Active Kids Busy and Learning All Summer

You know it really is summer when you hear, "Mom, what are we going to do today?"  When I replied, "Let's open the Babba Box", they were thrilled!

BabbaCo, the award-winning, all-in-one activity box subscription service, has a new Summer Survivor Pack that offers children ages 3 to 7 a summer-themed activity series.  Coming up in July is Camouflage Animals and the theme for August is Pirate Treasure.

Our BabbaCo box was filled with fun activities and experiments. We first tried the recipe for "World's Best Play Dough" and the girls had fun mixing the ingredients and then coming up with interesting color combinations (yellow and purple).  The kit came with goggles which they really loved.  We then made lava lamps in the little test tubes that were provided. Finally, we made some "Magic Mud" and it was also bright yellow and fun to smush.  The activity box also included a book called "What is the World Made of? All About Solids, Liquids, and Gases".  We had fun looking around the for some of the items discussed in the book, such as ice cubes, perfume, and clay. 

Needless to say, the Babba Box was a big hit and gave me a chance to play alongside the girls and also let them explore and learn on their own.  While you are on-the-go, you can take advantage of the digital membership at BabbaCo, which allows online access to all the creativity, step-by-step video directions for four activities, easy-to-download printable activity cards, and a curated selection of book and app recommendations from BabbaCo’s panel of early childhood experts.

BabbaCo has several pricing options starting at $6.99 for BabbaBox Digital, $15.99 for BabbaBox (includes the digital membership, materials for two activities, two extension project ideas, books, games, and activity cards), and $29.99 for BabbaBox Premium (include everything in BabbaBox plus two additional premium activities).
