Spring Crafts with Mila & Pheebs

If you’d have asked me a year ago if I enjoyed doing crafts with the children, I’d have told you, without a moments  hesitation, hell no!! But over the last few months, as the girls have got that little bit older, it is no longer the glue massacre that it once was, and actually we enjoy doing crafts together at least once a week.

When Mila & Pheebs asked my girls to be brand ambassadors for their beautiful subscription stationery and craft boxes, we were over the moon! Everyone knows just how obsessed I am with stationery, and the girls have definitely followed in my footsteps!

Having tried other subscription boxes previously, I was interested to see how these would be different and, at £10 a box (plus £2.99 UK postage), whether they would prove to be something that we would purchase throughout the year.

When our first box was delivered I loved that it was able to fit through the letterbox. As a blogger I spend half of my life down at the post office depot collecting parcels, so this was a pleasant change. Our first box was the Spring Box and contained –

  • Chick pencil and eraser topper,
  • Spring colouring-in sheets,
  • Daffodil vase craft kit,
  • Greeting cards and envelopes,
  • Spring foam stickers,
  • Ladybird eraser,
  • Spring wordsearch,
  • Duck mosaic wand kit,
  • Memo pad craft kit,
  • Colouring-in spot the difference,
  • Butterfly foil stickers.

It’s safe to say, the girls were over the moon with all of their goodies!!!

Although the boxes are advertised as being aimed at children aged 6+, I feel that at 4 and 5, the girls were more than capable of enjoying the activities. Eva particularly enjoyed making the bee note pad with the sticky backed foam shapes and simple instructions to follow.

Megan chose to do the daffodil vase craft, which I did worry may be a little difficult as it was the most complicated of them all, but she really got stuck in and with a little help she was more than capable!

I love that how all of the pieces are ready prepared, all sticky backed so no need for glue, and the instructions are so easy to follow.

Lastly Eva made the duck mosaic wand, and told me that this one was her favourite ever craft due to the sparkly stickers!

With so much many more activities still left to do, the box could easily last the full month if we were to spread it out. I think for the cost of all of the craft supplies and stationery, for £10 these boxes are excellent value for money, and even for those who do not wish to commit to a monthly subscription, they would make a lovely treat for the children at various points throughout the year.

    What an amazing subscription box, we used to love doing crafts when mine were little and I was always on the look out for cheap crafts to do. I really wish these would have been aroud at the time x

      There was nothing like this when my eldest was young either, I had to trawl around craft shops and come up with my own ideas! xx

    Aww wow this looks amazing! What incredible craft activities for children to do, when my daughter is a bit older I’ll certainly look into subscribing to this – it looks like something we’d enjoy 🙂

    Haha I am with you on that one. Because I work early morning into the evening, I spend my life picking up millions of parcels so it is great that this one was compact enough to fit through the door. I love how colourful and bright the crafts are x

    This is pretty cute! I do have to agree with you though. When I was little I remember glitter flying, glue in weird places, papercuts. Eventually it calmed a little lol. I think it’s about the time when I started coloring inside the lines.

      May 9, 2017 / 8:18 am

      Haha yes! When they are very young crafts aren’t fun at all! I love that we are past that stage! xx

    What a great way to teach them about the seasons as well as fine motor skills.

    I love craft kits like this. Perfect for little people, and having some rewarding craft sessions. £10 is a good price to pay for some decent craft goods.

    Opposite to you, I loved to do crafts when I was little but unfortunately we only had one hour a week to let our imagination go wild, in school. My parents would work until late afternoon each day and a subscription box like this would have definitely made me a happy kid.

    • Laura Dove
      May 9, 2017 / 9:33 pm

      Ahh yes, I would have loved to do this as a child too! xx

  18. May 9, 2017 / 5:10 pm

    I am loving all of these ideas! I think these are really adorable and fun to make with the kids. I should really take note of these for when the kids come to visit.

  19. May 9, 2017 / 7:21 pm

    I know my kids would enjoy doing this, I’ll have to keep these craft ideas in mind for the next rainy day : )
    I can’t believe all of the different craft options there are these days, makes life a little more easy and enjoyable as a parent!
