Giving a BabbaBox

Keeping two kids under the age of 5 busy and entertained is always a dilemma. My boys love "going out" as they call it. They hate staying home. I guess they've been spoiled by living in "America's Finest City" San Diego. There is always something fun to do and the weather is most always perfect!

Yet, on the days budget is tight or I'm just too tired to take two little boys out on the town, I try to find some fun activities at home to engage them. Of course,I want them to have fun and try new things, but learn something as well. 

Here are a few fun things we've done at home:

1) We've painted bird houses I bought at the dollar store and then did a little nature walk in our backyard to find the perfect place to hang them!

 2)  Using foam stickers and some construction paper, we made our own counting books!

 3) Using old magazines and construction paper, my I had my kids cut out and paste pictures that matched the color of the paper. 


 4) Believe it or not, my kids like to do homework! Yes, a 2 and 4 year old don't have homework, but they like the idea of having a binder with ABC and 123 activities which we refer to as their "homework". 


I'm always looking for new things to do with my boys so I'm excited to share with you BabbaBox! BabbaBox is centered on timely themes and includes 5 major components centered around the ways kids engage and learn: CREATE, EXPLORE, STORY TELL, CONNECT.


"Create" are 2 projects they make themselves. "Explore" is an activity with a provided project or object to engage with the world. "Story tell" is a bestselling book that best represents the theme through a story. "Connect" is the digital downloads. All of the materials are delivered right to your door so you can focus on enjoying quality time with your family.



January’s BabbaBox: “Get Organized” Featuring Partnerships With Real Simple And ThredUP. 
Transform all of that post-holiday organization into fun, memorable time with your kids!  Plus teaching kids about organization encourages ownership and independence – important qualities as they develop self-esteem and confidence.

First, you’ll CREATE a way to both organize and showcase all that kid artwork you have piled up in the corner!  The end result is a beautiful clothesline art gallery that both you and your children can proudly display. Then you’ll help your child CREATE his/her own art supply organizer! We even get them finger-painting with this project! For the EXPLORE component, we give you an amazing tool for organizing your kids’ clothes and cleaning out that closet. We’ve partnered with a company called thredUP so that you will actually be able to get money in exchange for your kids’ old clothes. We also give you kid-friendly drawer labels to encourage your kids to take out and put away their own clothes. The book for January features the beloved characters from Max and Ruby. And finally, we’ve included a special something for grown-ups – we partnered with Real Simple to give you a great guide for de-cluttering your life, as well as a little token from Jessica Kim.
