The box is filled with all sorts of crafty items and we’re excited to use them all!

The items were arranged in the box with a white tissue paper.

Every box includes an information card with a message from the curator of the box.

At the back, there’s a lovely poem that describes this month’s featured activities. This is a super fun and engaging way to start the craft.

Also included is an instruction guide, supported by images of the steps. We have four activities in store for us. All the materials needed are included in the box.

Everything you need in the box!

#1: Rainbow Dragon

The first project is called Rainbow Dragon. Materials include colorful cupcake wrappers, tubes from tissue, printed eyes, glue stick, cut papers, and clay.

My kids picked the cupcake colors they liked!

To start, fold the cupcake liners and then carefully stick them onto the tube to form the dragon’s head.

Let it dry for a moment and, using scissors, cut each wrapper thoroughly. As for the excess liners, just glue them down.

The next thing to do is mold the colored clay and place it on the other end of the tube and, using the crayon, poke the clay to form the nostrils.

Lastly, press the eye shape firmly into place using your thumb, add some rainbow scales on the face for additional design, and put on the tissue strips on the mouth which will serve as the dragon’s frill.

There you go, our first pair of Rainbow Dragons!

#2: Rainbow Dragon Eggs

The next project is called Rainbow Dragon Eggs. Materials include plastic eggshell, colorful magic models, and scales.

Unlike the Rainbow Dragon, this second project is way much easier to make. We got clays in neon pink, neon yellow, and neon yellow-green. We mixed them to form one big clay with different swirls of color.

Next step is to flatten out the clay like a big pancake so you can wrap it on the egg.

Wrap the egg and pull the clay into place to completely enclose the egg. Once it is fully covered, roll it around on a clean flat surface to smooth out any lumps or bumps.

There are a lot of ways to put the scales on the rainbow dragon egg. You can either put the scales on a flat surface and let the egg roll over it or manually put the scales one by one and firmly press it so it stays in place.

We manually put the scales on the egg and we made sure that it won’t fall off easily.

#3: Color Your Rainbow Dragon

The third is a coloring project! For this one, the paper dragons, crayons, rainbow crayon, and blue paper are included.

Everybody was so excited to color their own dragons!

My youngest child started with the wing, head, feet, and tail.

Once you’re done with the whole body color, thickly apply the glue on parts where you want to add the shiny scale. Carefully sprinkle the sequins and press into place.

#4: Rainbow Dragon Scene

In creating your own Rainbow Dragon Scene, simply stick the blue paper on the box, as it serves as the sky where the dragons will fly.

Stick some of the dragon papers on the upper part of the box, then put your handmade rainbow dragon and rainbow dragon egg inside the box.

We Craft Box is an excellent subscription that brings everyone together for fun crafting activities. It is also a good way to practice your kids’ creativity and problem-solving skills. I really enjoyed seeing my kids doing the projects with enthusiasm. It warms my heart to see them so motivated while having fun. The end result shows how imaginative kids really are. We really had an amazing time doing these activities and we absolutely adore this box! We’re also pretty excited to see what activities we will be getting next month!
