Living in England, you can never guarantee what the weather will be like. One day you can have gorgeous sunshine, and literally the next day; torrential rain. Therefore, I’ve come to making sure that we always have something stashed away for those rainy days to keep us both occupied.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been trialing a new monthly subscription box called Mud ‘n’ Bloom, which is aimed at nature and craft lovers. Within each box are seasonal activities and games, as well as seeds to plant along the way.
Each box is designed to follow EYFS, KS1 and KS2 national curriculum (aged 3 – 8) and are priced at £7.95 (including postage!). There’s also the option to buy them as gifts.
As part of our invitation we received July and August’s box to try out, and thanks to the ever-changing weather, the boxes really have lasted! Because there’s so much to do, we’ve decide to dip in every now and again – this means we’re encouraged to visit different places depending on whether the kit asks us to collect items like twigs, leaves or flowers.
