Back in December, I wrote a post about BabbaBox. A BabbaBox is basically a themed package of entertainment for your kids that is delivered to your door.
My boys loved getting their Babbabox in the mail and couldn’t wait to start the activities. Last time, we made a really cool moon night light that actually ended up on display in my bedroom.
When I heard BabbaCo had re-designed the BabbaBox, I jumped at the chance to preview the new look. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what they would do to make it better.
What I liked most about the new presentation was that it wasn’t actually in a big box. The packaging, which my sons ripped into before I could take a picture, was more compact. I liked that I didn’t have excess material to throw away or recycle.
The contents had a kitchen science theme to it. It came with safety goggles, test tubes, an eye dropper, stirrers, food coloring and various ingredients to help us with our experiments.
My boys got to be chemists. G took the lead and read the easy to follow directions for our projects. There were also some fun questions along the way that helped the boys understand the science behind what we were doing.
We made magic mud.
We made a lava lamp.
We even made a volacano!
The fourth project is making a bouncy ball. Memorial Day and the sudden onset of summer here in Maine has delayed our ball making, but I’m sure we’ll be doing that one soon. (Personally, I wanted to start with the bouncy ball activity, but I didn’t get to choose.)
The best part about this particular BabbaBox is that my boys are already thinking about other experiments they can do. G immediately put corn starch on the grocery list so that we can make magic mud again in the future. Unlike the last BabbaBox, I know that I will get even more activities out of it. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
You can get BabbaBox delivered to your door via a membership. It’s pretty affordable too.
And I even have a BabbaBox coupon code for you to use: BABBACO10. This code gets you $10 off a new monthly or annual membership.
So, yes, we were blinded by science.
Have you ever done science experiments with your kids?
I was given a free BabbaBox in exchange for this post. The opinions and text are all mine.
