My kids’ calendars are busier than mine. Between events at their school, extra-curricular activities, sports and playdates, there is rarely any downtime around our house.
Because we are always on the go, we don’t always have enough time for the fun stuff like doing crafts, playing games, or just letting them be kids. When we found ourselves with a rare free afternoon last week, I pulled out the Avery & Austin subscription box and we had the perfect playdate! It was a lovely afternoon filled with nothing but painting, planting, and playtime outside.
The gals at Avery & Austin have thought long and hard about what goes into planning the perfect playdate and they package it up and deliver it, right to your door! Each box is filled with two crafts, two snacks, and even a special treat for moms. It doesn’t get better than that!
Our April box included Go-Go squeeZ applesauce, complete planting supplies to grow organic baby carrots, and painting supplies to decorate garden rocks. As if all of that wasn’t enough, the clay mask and lip balm for me was just the icing on top. Let’s face it, while crafting with kids can be fun, every mom needs a little pampering after painting and playing in the dirt!
I had originally planned to have my oldest (who is almost 8-years-old) complete the activities in the playdate box with her friend, but when the little ones saw all of the goodies it held, they were too excited for me to say no! That’s one thing I loved about it though… the projects were easy enough for my pre-schooler, but detailed enough for my older girls to enjoy them, too.
To order your own playdate box, visit the Avery & Austin website. You can purchase one box or sign up for a monthly subscription, which will save you a bit of money. Each month, the crafts and activities are different, so with summer right around the corner, I can’t think of a better time to subscribe. Every mother is sure to hear the dreaded “I’m bored” at some point over the summer, so this could be like your very own secret weapon when you hear those words!
