Everything in my box!
This month’s collectible mini-figurine is wrapped in a printed paper sealed with a Sago Mini sticker.
This month’s collectible figurine is a cute little mouse named Mr. Safety Inspector Squeaky!
Mr. Squeaky mouse is wearing an orange-colored safety jacket.
My daughter finds Mr. Squeaky really cute!
We have 3 activity packs this month!
Activity 1: Dump Truck & Rock Crushing. The materials for the first activity is placed inside a yellow envelope with black stripes. It’s addressed to “The Best Dump Truck Driver” and it came from Squeaky!
The other side of the envelope lists all the instructions and materials needed to complete the activity!
Inside the activity kit is a letter from our new buddy, Squeaky!
My kids read the letter first before starting the project.
For the Dump Truck and Rock Crushing activity, we used the dump truck base, dump truck bin, windshield, hinge stickers, and rock sheets.
My kids started the activity by assembling the truck and the bin. They folded the flaps and inserted the tabs into the slots, creating a dump truck base and a bin.
The next step is to connect the bin to the truck base using the hinge stickers. To complete the truck, simply insert the windshield piece in front.
Now, it’s time to make “rocks” by crumpling the sheets of paper.
Activity 2: Construction Site Coloring. The second activity is called Construction Site Coloring, and this envelope is addressed to “My Fellow Construction Worker” from Rosie.
Featured on the other side of the pack is a detailed step-by-step procedure and materials needed for the project.
For this activity, they sent a construction site map, site stickers, character sheet, and crayons.
Inside the envelope is a note from Rosie!
First, my kids took the carton sheet and popped out the characters from it. They also connected the characters to the base pieces to make them stand on their own.
They also colored the construction site using their crayons.
Using the stickers, they added more decor to the construction site.
The site is now complete!
Using the dump truck that they made in the first activity, they collected all the rocks that blocked the road at the construction site!
Activity 3: Build & Demolish. The materials for the third activity is placed in a brown-colored envelope with a print that features tire and mud markings. This kit is from Dennis and addressed to “The Demolisher!”
Just like the past two activities, there were complete instructions on how to do this last activity.
We used a wrecker arm, wrecker cab, wrecking ball, and the box.
We also received 20 colorful, well-designed walls and roofs.
My kids collected the walls and start constructing the building.
The box itself is also needed for this activity! We flipped it inside out and used it as the base of the wrecking crane.
When all is done, we placed the wrecker in front of the building, and start swinging the wrecking ball until it touched the building.
The building was destroyed in an instant!
Here’s another look at the dump truck with all the paper rocks my kids have collected on the construction site.
Then, my kids moved these rocks to another site. It’s so fun!
With all the walls we received in the box, we can construct at least 2 more buildings to be wrecked!
Mr. Squeaky fits well on the wrecker!
Here’s a final look at all the hands-on activities this month!
Sago Mini Box is a unique activity subscription for kids. We love their make-and-play concept, where the kids make the “toys” themselves using the provided materials and then play with them after. These activities definitely help in enhancing creativity and even analytical and motor skills. My kids loved all the activities this month, including working on the dump truck, buildings, wrecker, and even putting colors and stickers on the construction site. It’s also great that they have supplied all the materials and instructions, and everything is packed accordingly so the kids will just need to grab the envelope and start right away!
