toucanBox is a monthly activity subscription box that encourages creativity through crafting, learning and imaginative play for children aged 3- 8. It is the box’s goal to create a safe outlet for kids to develop their curiosity and critical thinking, open their minds to new ideas and express themselves freely. It includes puzzles, games, experiments, and recipes that are high quality and safe.
The box is personally addressed to the children with everything you need like the materials, instructions, and magazine.

We are greeted with a uniquely laid out box that features the 2 crafting activities and its materials.
It is designed to fit the needs of the UK Royal mail – but in the cutest little flat box! You know this one is really going to grab and go!
Everything in the box!
We also got a colorful sticker sheet! It features different kinds of animals and characters that you can find under the sea!
Let’s see what the magazine has in store for us!
This month, we are going on an underwater adventure! First, we just have to turn back the clocks an hour early for daylight saving time!
They created a story and it’s an effective set up for a drawing activity.
The STEAM team’s adventure under the sea is so much fun!
The booklet is fun and interactive. The kids can draw their own crazy sea creature!
There are also other drawing activities that the kids can make themselves busy with, like being able to draw the STEAM team’s techno-wiz robot, TB1!
Experiment time! This spread provides instructions so you can test if the eggs will float on water, depending on the amount of salt you put in.
There’s even a recipe and this month it’s Leftover Pumpkin Hummus!
Another feature is a coloring page with the STEAM team busy in the kitchen!
Here are some bonus stickers featuring an ice cream vendor and an adventurer. My sons helped each other out in finishing the on-page activities and used the stickers!
The box also came with adorable coloring postcards!
The kids each have a card to work on.
Merry Christmas indeed! My son even drew a cute character!
These packs contain the materials for this month’s activities!
Activity No. 1: Frog Prince. For this activity, we will be making the adorable croaky Prince!
The activity calls for some elastic bands, party blowers, sticky back eyes, double stick tape, velcro dots, frog templates, and felt sheets, and all of these are provided by the box. You’ll just need a pair of scissors and pen from home.
There’s a game sheet that we can use when the frogs are finished!
The kids prepared all the items needed to make their own frog, which is vying for the crown!
That’s cute! The party blowers served as the frog’s long tongue!
My son tried to show his frog’s tongue out by blowing the party blower!
Now, it’s time to fetch and collect the felt crowns!
Whoever collects the most number of crowns wins!
Activity No. 2: Dinosaur Tail & Mask. For the second activity, the kids are doing a costume. It’s a dino tail and mask!
For this activity, the box provided some fabric dino tail, foam stickers, foam spikes, double stick tape, lolly stick, coloring pencils, and dino mask.
They first lay the spikes on the fabric tail, and make it stick with the use of sticky tape!
My son decorated the tail with colorful foam stickers.
His tail is ready, and it’s awesome!
Next up is the dino mask! He just needs to attach the popsicle stick on the mask…
And then color it!
He’s a dino! And an adorable dino showing his set of teeth, ready to attack!
toucanBox is definitely helping us to develop our kids’ artsy and crafty side while having fun! The box provided not only useful information about the box’s chosen theme but also techniques on how else they can improve their craft. We love that the box provides all the materials, all the kids need to do is to let their creative juices flow and enjoy! The booklet is a great reading and learning piece as well. Overall, it’s the perfect box for learning and for a great family bonding time!
