At the back, it discusses all the activities in this month’s box and lists the contents as well!
The bottom part of the box features a green field with grass, log, and some hidden animals.
The box includes 3 different activity packs!
Every box includes a collectible figurine! It’s wrapped in a printed paper, sealed with Sago Mini sticker.
Explorer Nutmeg. This month’s featured mini-figurine is a super cute squirrel!
Nutmeg is an adventurer who loves to travel, trek, and go for an outdoor adventure.
Each activity comes with a corresponding letter!
Activity #1: Forest Seek + Find. The first activity is packed in a light brown envelope. This envelope is addressed to “My trusty explorer” and it came from Larry!
The other side of the envelope contains a detailed instruction for the activity!
Inside the envelope is a leaf-shaped paper that contains a message from Larry the log!
The kit includes a forest play piece, magnifying glass, and a forest field guide. The box itself is also needed for the activity and you just have to flip it inside out!
This booklet features different things you can see inside a forest. It includes wildflowers, acorn, pinecone, pine tree, dandelions, mushroom, fern, cattails, grass, and even Larry the log himself!
There are also a lot of animals inside, such as the frog, bird, squirrel, mouse, turtle, owl, snake, bat, mole, and even bear!
My daughter started the activity by reading the letter from Larry.
After reading the letter, she grabbed the magnifying glass and explored some part of the forest.
She also placed the magnifying glass behind the fallen log and checked out the animals hiding behind it.
There’s a snake and a ladybug inside!
The flap of the box features a small house built in the middle of the forest.
Using the magnifying glass, she explored the house and saw a variety of animals living inside. There was a bat on the attic and a chick on the door!
My daughter also put the bases on each play pieces and placed them on the spaces in the field to build a forest.
Here’s how the completed forest looks like!
They explored the forest together with the help of their mini figure, Nutmeg!
You can also slide the magnifying glass behind the front panel to check out the animals living under it.
Next, my kids took the booklet and reviewed all the animals that they encountered on their forest adventure.
For the last part, kids can draw the animals and plants they’ve spotted in the forest using the provided sheets. There’s also a space where they can write the name of the animal and where did they find the animal. This activity is a great way to help kids become familiar with different kinds of animals!
Activity #2: Forest Food. The second activity is in light green envelope with ants printed all over. This one was sent by Nutmeg to her favorite forest chef!
Featured on the other side of the envelope are detailed instructions!
Inside is a letter from Nutmeg!
Aside from the letter, the kids also received a plate, pizza crust, ingredients, and a pack of kinetic sand for this activity.
According to the instruction sheet, kids can make three different forest food from all the materials included in the kit.
The first forest food my kids made is worm spaghetti. All they just needed to do is lay the plate on the work station, take the worm cutouts, and place them on top of the plate.
They also put the the red sauce cutout in it, and using the kinetic sand, they formed meatballs and add them on top of everything! So. much. squealing!
The second forest food they made is an acorn pizza! My kids just laid the pizza crust cutout on a flat surface and topped it with the kinetic sand.
After flattening the sand on top of the pizza crust, they added the rest of the ingredient cutouts including the acorn, acorn caps, and cheese!
The third forest food is chocolate twig cookies! My kids formed a cookie using the kinetic sand and added the ingredient cutouts of their choice.
My kids decided to put some chocolate chips, acorn, and even some leaves as a toppings!
Check out all the cookies my kids made!
Activity #3: Forest Friends. The third activity is enclosed in a yellow envelope that features silhouettes of dragonflies, moths, and even butterflies. This envelope is from Jack to his friend, the nature-lover!
Like the first two envelopes, this one also comes with an instruction sheet attached on the other side of the envelope.
Here’s a letter from Jack!
For the third activity, my kids used character sheets and other nature-inspired cutouts!
They started the project by peeling off the parts of the animals on the sheet.
Then, they mixed and matched the parts to the nature objects to make forest animals.
There’s a bee with a pair of wings made of leaves, a squirrel with acorn body, a bear with solid rock body, and a deer with a body made of pine!
This is another fun box overall! My kids enjoyed all three activities!
Sago Mini Box is always a hit with my kids and this one really wowed us! This activity subscription box helps enhance kids’ creativity and imagination through make-and-play activities, and they never run out of exciting themes. This month, the activities are forest-themed! My kids loved getting to know different forest animals, creating forest food using the kinetic sand and cutouts,and putting together some forest animal figures that they can play with and then display after. The materials are already provided in the box and the instructions are also easy to follow, so everything went smoothly. If you have a preschooler, this is a fantastic subscription to get for them, so they can enjoy and have fun while learning new things! We love how everything is reusable or recyclable, but my kids love keeping their favorites to play with over and over!
