The first craft was the Plant Buddy craft. My daughters were so excited to do this. Since they're only 3 and 6, I had to supervise them with the instructions.
Here is a short video of how they made the Plant Buddy.
The Surprise Ride Subscription box is a great way to receive fun and educational hands-on activities for kids. My daughters loved the crafts included and they had fun doing them. I love that all the materials needed for the craft are already included in the subscription box so that would save me time from gathering the things needed for each craft. Each craft is also very educational (the plant buddy) and made my daughters' imaginations work (the wind chime).
Update: Here is a photo of my daughters' Mr. Plant Buddy. They water "him" (I refer to him as him because they called him Mr. Plant Buddy :)) everyday and cut his "hair" (the grass) once every few days. I think they're learning how to be more responsible for Mr. Plant Buddy and that's nice because they've added another "to-do" task in their everyday list.
You can visit the Surprise Ride Website to see more of their past boxes.
