My kids and I all love doing crafts and hands-on projects but sometimes I am just not creative to come up with things on our own. I was really excited when we were asked to review The Happy Trunk. The Happy Trunk is a subscription box service that has themed craft boxes delivered right to your door. You get to choose either the box for 3-7 year old kids or the box for 7-11 year old kids. Each box features 2-3 projects, some are arts & crafts related, some are science related.
Our box was geared for 7-11 year olds. I knew that my 10 year old daughter would like to try it out. Out kit had 3 projects for us to do: Make Your Own Mini Soap Bars, Make Fizzy Bath Balls & Grow Your Own Crystals. Everything we needed to make all 3 were included in our kit.
The first thing we made was the mini soap bars. Ashlyn helped me to melt the soap base in the microwave and then add the colorant & fragrant oil. I helped her pour the liquid into the silicone mold and we let it harden for about 15 minutes. When we popped them out, we had perfect little orange soaps!
We’re also currently growing our crystals! They take 3-4 days, so when they are done growing I will post a picture! We had a lot of fun mixing & measuring and can’t wait to see the crystals we’ve grown!
We’re looking forward to being surprised each month when our box arrives. There’s nothing better than getting a surprise in the mail and then being able to do something fun & creative with it!
