LolliBox sent over their Moon & Stars LolliBox for Anya to try out and we had quite a bit of fun with it. We started by making a papier-mâché moon and most of the steps were simple enough for Anya to carry out on her own. I had to inflate the balloon for her and help her with the positioning of the strips of paper on the balloon. I really appreciated the fact that everything needed to create the papier-mâché moon was provided, even a bowl to support the balloon during the process.
Next, we decorated the telescope. I helped Anya stick the piece of blue paper around the outer tube of the telescope, then she stuck on the stickers. My only grouse here is that the stickers weren’t very sticky and didn’t adhere so well to the shiny blue paper. But Anya had a good time staring at everything around her through the telescope.
The LolliBox comes with a Moon & Stars journal and the child is encouraged to make use of the telescope to study the moon and stars and record down her observations.
The Moon & Stars LolliBox also comes with suggested art and imagination activities. Upon completion of all activities, the child can be awarded the ‘Moon & Stars’ badge which is found in the LolliBox.
I enjoy doing crafts with Anya but I don’t always have the time to search for ideas on the Internet or to buy the items needed. Sometimes I only need one or two pieces of a particular craft material but end up having to buy a whole packet which I may not use again! LolliBox helps busy parents like me to overcome those problems by providing the craft ideas and the materials along with step-by-step instructions. I think they are especially useful for rainy days!
