 Open a World of Fun with myfunvelope!

 

Rainy days. Travelling. Sick days. These are days that are hard on both kids and parents because you always want your child to have fun and entertained when they are not allowed to move around too much. Myfunvelope understands these situations and asked us if their roster of activities will fill the boredom gaps for my kids.

Myfunvelope is a subscription service that delivers themed crafts and activities to your door for your children to learn from and enjoy. Each envelope includes four unique craft projects as well as a STEM activity to test little one’s minds and keeps them busy.

When my kids got the green light, they were really excited to open their funenvelope. They quite literally tried ripping the envelope open to see what adventure waited for them inside.

Once we opened our envelope, we discovered we received the Safari-themed envelope. My kids really enjoy animals, so this was a great theme to try.

My daughter loves jewellery so she wanted to dive in to put together the animal face bracelet. She had fun arranging the faces in a pattern she thought was perfect along the tread provided for this craft. Within minutes, she was sporting her newest piece of jewellery.

The young gentleman in our home is a born explorer. The binocular craft was the perfect activity for him to do. After following the simple instructions and placed the foam stickers on to create his own personal design, my little guy was ready to discover what our home looked like up close.

Both kids really had fun creating the elephant felt puppet. It was a fun craft that also allowed for them to gain a little life experience by having to learn how to sew their new friend together. It was a bit difficult to find all of the holes to thread the needle through, but they liked being able to do a “big person” task.

We were also missing an inner ear flap, but I fashioned a makeshift one to make up for this loss. The glue dots were an easy way to put the pieces of the elephant’s face together, but I wished there were more of them to use. The end result was a soft and fun playmate to create stories with.

The lion head stick puppet was really simple for my son to create. All we had to do was follow the example of the face provided on the pamphlet provided in order to see which of the pieces of the face went where to have a cute puppet to play with.

My daughter also liked colouring the giraffe printable sheet. Since she considers herself to be a bit of an artist, she went against the grain, making this animal an extremely colourful version of what most would expect this creature to look like. I loved that crayons were included, so there were no assumptions made as to whether the child had access to crayons on hand.

The STEM catapult made my son’s eyes light up when he realizes what this activity could do. After following the example on the pamphlet, we out this mini structure together. He was so happy to start launching the sparkly pom poms around our home. He asked a lot of questions as to how a catapult worked, getting his mind whirling about this STEM toy.

What I really like about myfunvelope is that most of the contents of the envelope are portable. They can easily be taken on a train or a car ride to help kids entertained while en route to your destination. I could even see how a child could have fun doing these activities while at home when they are not feeling well. These activities are also ones that can be used over and over again, so the fun can go on for many days to come.

One of the things I wished there was more of was instructions. Younger children may have a bit of a problem understanding how to put together activities like the catapult because it is not explained step by step. You had to look on the pamphlet and figure out how to assemble it.

 

 

Overall, my kids enjoyed opening up their myfunvelope subscription set. There was a lot to do, so the activities could be spread out over a couple of days or on a not so favourable day outside. Many of the activities were easy to create on their own, so they can become independent learners. I did had a few issues with this subscription service, but they were not so much that it would take away from the overall enjoyment of this service.

We found out more about myfunvelope by checking out their Facebook and Instagram pages! Take a look for yourself for fun sets for your child to discover!
