A few weeks ago we got a request to join Toucan Box to receive a free trial box. Back at the start of the 100 day play challenge I looked into several activity subscription websites. All of them stated their activities were suitable from ages 3 plus so I didn’t purchase any. However, I am impatient and wanted to see what they would be like so jumped at the chance of a trial box.
The Toucan Box arrived by post in a decorative box addressed to Adam.
Inside was all the equipment needed to make a Seasons canvas bag along with detailed instructions.
We were at Nana’s house so had a go at the activity. First we had to rip up tissue paper. Adam found this tricky and preferred to scrunch it up instead.
Beth found it much easier to rip the tissue paper.
Adam managed to get the dye on his lips after attempting to eat some tissue paper.
We placed the tissue paper on the plastic sheet provided and Adam painted water on top.
I then laid the canvas bag on top and pressed down for a minute. Adam was desperate to get the canvas bag off!
The outcome wasn’t exactly what we were expecting!
So we tried again with Beth.
Again the outcome wasn’t what we had expected.
In fact the plastic sheet was the most decorative part.
Even my hands were more stained than the canvas bag!
I can see why I had never heard of using tissue paper to dye a canvas bag before now! It didn’t really work but we had fun.
This is not a review of Toucan Box. They did not provide me with the box to review nor do they recommend that their activities are suitable for children under three.
Adam was 21 months old.
