Sago Mini’s fun subscription for preschoolers and little kids made the list in our 2021 readers’ choice best subscription boxes for kids list!
All the items were packed in a brown box with cute drawings all over.
A card welcomes us to this month’s box. The box this month is all about MONSTERS!
The contents were packed with wrapping paper and sealed with a Sago Mini sticker.
Aside from the main box, there are also envelopes that separate the materials.
This card discusses all the activities in this month’s box and lists the contents as well!
The box includes 3 different activities!
Everything in my box!
Blueberry. Every box includes a fun, collectible figurine. This month, it’s Blueberry!
Activity #1: Making Monsters. The first activity came from Jinja and it’s addressed to the magnificent monster maker.
The other side of the envelope contains detailed instructions. It’s a fun crafty activity, which is all about making paper monsters.
Inside the envelope is a letter from Jinja!
The kit includes a monster body card, monster feet, reusable stickers, and inspiration lookbook!
The first step is to assemble the monster by attaching the feet to its body and to make its face!
Kids can be as creative as they want with their monster designs, using the reusable stickers provided in the envelope. For kids who need inspiration, they can check out the lookbook. My daughter used the heart eyes to make the monster a little less scary! She loved how it turned out and played with the heart-eyed monster some more.
Activity #2: Nail Care. The next envelope is colorful! It came from Rosie and it’s addressed to the nail artist extraordinaire.
Of course, they provided instructions for this one! It’s a fun pretend-play activity, where kids can be nail artists while the monsters are their clients!
Rosie also has a message inside the envelope!
First, we turned the box inside out and tucked the storefront into the flap.
Other materials provided for this activity are cardboard cutouts of nail polish, nail file, nail cutter, brush, and more!
Here’s how the box looks like when assembled!
First, we fed the nail paper through the holes on the flap and through the monster’s feet. Here she’s using the cardboard nail polish, which she was in love with using – maybe even more than the water!
Then, she used the nail file to make the monster’s nails smoother!
Now, it’s time to put some color on the nails! My daughter filled a cup with water, dipped a paintbrush in water, and then painted the nail paper with water to reveal the color.
My daughter definitely had fun pampering the monster!
Aside from keeping them creative and enhancing their imagination, this is also a great example of small motor play.
What’s great about this activity is that kids can paint the monster’s nails repeatedly! They just have to trim the monster’s nails first, and paint again.
Activity #3: Hair Salon. The third activity is enclosed in a periwinkle envelope that features scissor designs all over. This envelope is from Blueberry to her future hair stylist!
Like the first two envelopes, this one also comes with an instruction sheet attached on the other side. After doing the monster’s nails, this time, the kids will be styling its hair!
It also contains a letter from Blueberry!
The materials for this activity includes salon props, stickers, and some wigs!
The first step is to tear off the bottom of the wig and place it on top of the monster. Then, proceed to trim it using kid-friendly scissors!
Of course, my daughter also styled the monster’s hair using the provided stickers.
My daughter even used the blower! How cute!
We’re almost done with our valuable customer! Just a few more touches and she’s good to go!
This is the finished look of the monster! My daughter definitely did a great job with it! Beautiful!
My daughter is always excited whenever a Sago Mini box arrives. This month, the box included another set of fun projects, including making a monster using cutouts and stickers, painting its nails, and styling its hair. My daughter did an amazing job with everything, and only needed supervision when the steps involved cutting using a scissor (we used a kid-friendly one!). Her favorite part was styling the monster’s hair but she enjoyed painting the nails as well. She did it over and over again until the paper nails run out! Materials and well-detailed instructions were provided, so everything went smoothly. This is an ideal subscription to keep preschoolers busy and entertained through pretend play!
