Being a busy special needs mother with two other “typical” boys keeps my schedule very full! Unfortunately, with so much of my time being dedicated to Hayden’s doctor appointments, therapies, and taking care of his physical needs, Grayson and Ethan often bear the brunt of mom’s “busyness.” This month, rather than a Date Night In Box for Ryan and I, I decided to get a Kids Night In Box so that I could have some dedicated quality time together with the boys that was just fun time with mom. And best of all, I didn’t have to plan any of this super fun activity because the box comes with everything you need!
The theme of this month’s box is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle which was a big hit at our house! This year, we have started a family garden – it only has six plants in it, but it’s a start! (And we even have a compost pile!) To see how excited Ethan was when our first bell pepper bloomed in our garden was precious. And it also convinced me the boys were going to FLIP over this month’s box.
This box was really super fun and it came with a beautiful board book, “Don’t Throw That Away” that had tabs you pull back to see more words and pictures. The kids loved taking turns revealing answers to what could be made out of “trash” when we don’t throw it away, but repurpose it. The boys enjoyed making a “bubble wand”, as they were calling it, using materials provided in the box and we also got to paint together – and no one fought! **insert praise hands here** This entire box was fun, practical and educational, but not in a stuffy, boring kind of way. The kids and I really enjoyed it and the time we intentionally took to spend together was priceless.

These boxes are so beautifully and thoughtfully put together and we love getting our monthly subscription, but even more than that, we love knowing we will have dedicated time spent with one another each month.
