Our Little Globe monthly box subscription is the ultimate kids activity craft boxes packed to the brim with letters, crafts, cooking and colouring activities to keep children busy exploring! Due to the current lockdown that we are all experiencing, keeping our children entertained on a daily basis can be quite tricky. I wanted to ensure that my daughter would not be reduced to spending hours on technology after her school work has been completed. I hadn’t seen any children’s subscription box like it before so I was over the moon when I got to try one out with my 6 year old daughter. We really wanted see all the amazing things they had for children to discover.
‘Our Little Globe’ provide monthly country-themed activity boxes aim to inspire children to learn about the world around them. Each month a package will arrive personally addressed to them!
When we received the subscription box we couldn’t wait to open it. What I couldn’t believe at first was how well done the packaging and outside of the box looked! We felt like we were about to go on an adventure straight away. On opening the box I was astounded by how many great educational items could fit in one subscription box. First I opened a beautifully, well presented letter from our Spanish Pen-pal “Miguel” and he taught us lots of interesting facts about Spain. Then we looked further into the box and found a passport, craft bag, Spanish recipes (always one vegetarian option included), stickers and even a small bag of paprika! All of these lovely items fitted neatly into our own mini suitcase!
‘Our Little Globe’ is aimed at children aged 5 to 10 years old and all the activities in the box fit in with the national curriculum.
The packages are catered to suit every pocket and subscribing is incredibly easy! Simply pick a monthly, six month or 12 month subscription and children will receive a country-themed activity box at the end of each month. For the prices check out their website and you too can enjoy hours of fun. Each box teaches and inspires them to visit a new country every month with lovely fact-filled crafts.
Our Little Globe’s story began in August 2016, whilst on maternity leave. Loving their new roles as mums but not wanting to lose their own identities and ambition as career women, the Erin and Fi, founders and owners, built the company together. The aim was to inspire children to ask questions about new places and people and promotes tolerance of others. The activities produce are fun and educational – and above all teach children (and grown-ups!) that cultures, traditions and tastes found in new places are fun to explore!
My 6 year old daughter loves any sort of crafts and loved having this adventure in her very own home. My daughter and I highly recommend this product as she was thrilled with her package. I thought it was so very well presented. The attention to detail is meticulous and we were both very impressed!!
