A long time overdue, but here's our review of the Addi's Nest Family History for Kids subscription box! (This is a review for the August 2017 box.)
We (my daughter and I always walk to the mailbox together so opening the mailbox is always a new adventure and guessing game of what will be inside. One afternoon after we had gotten home from a long couple of trips out of town, we got home and had our first subscription box from Addi's Nest! We could hardly wait to get back to the house to open it up and see what surprises and fun activities were inside!
So, we got home and opened up our box to find a sweet note that explained the theme for the month and what to look for inside the box as some things might be smaller than others. Each of the items were wrapped so it made the process even MORE fun to rip into!
My daughter is just over a year old, so some things in the box were a little advanced for her. There is a disclaimer, however, that it is best suited for ages 4 and up, so keep that in mind. Hopefully in the future we will see more customization box options, but since they are just starting, it's a GREAT place to start!
So far her favorite is to play with the Story Rocks that came in the box. Lately, for family night we love to make up stories about things or even share with her simple family stories that keep her attention just long enough. It's for sure something that she can continue to use as she gets older and find more uses for as well!
The best part (at least I think) for Caroline was the side package that came with the box -- a very special book! This month's book was "The Matchbox Diary". Again, a little over her comprehension level as far as the story line, but this girl loves to sit with mom or dad and read a story. The pictures are bright and colorful! It's a great read with kids at the comprehension level for the book (ages 4+).
This is such a great idea for a subscription box, I can't wait til Caroline is just a little bit older to be able to understand what's going on with each individual item. With so many different subscription-type boxes out there, this is one that you and your kids will be sure to love as well as create memories and learn more about your family and your kids more about themselves and what makes them special!
