I want to let you in to something about blogging. When you have been blogging for a while, you get the opportunity to work with some pretty cool brands. Of course there are some that you can’t genuinely recommend to your readers, so you pass. Others are just out of your scope, so you pass. When I was presented with the opportunity to partner with Buddy Box, I thought “this really has nothing to do with organization, decorating, or entertaining but I love this concept and want to share it with my readers.” So I decided to make an exception and I hope that you will love this concept as much as we do.
It’s not often that I share about my faith on Graceful Order because the focus of this blog is organizing, decorating and entertaining at home. In my home our faith is part of the fabric of our family and whenever I learn about companies like Buddy Box, I want to give them a try and if I like it, I want to share it with the world. You guys are part of my world!
So what is this box that merited this looong intro? You know how subscription boxes are really popular? We can get makeup or food that gets delivered to our door monthly, and we get super excited to see what goodies we are getting this month. This box tailored to kids and includes new products and themes every month, that help to build their faith. I think it’s the coolest concept!
So look at the pictures of my 4 year old as he received this month’s Buddy Box. I don’t know if it’s because he is my kid but when I look at these pictures I crack up! That kid is expressive!
I wanted to photograph the whole process and you can imagine how hard that was with this little one wanting to start playing with everything! It was a joy to watch him pull out every single item.
Here are most of the items that came in the box, although they didn’t all fit in the picture. You get the idea…it’s a lot.
Here he is “reading” the explanation to all the items/games included in the box. It bears mentioning that the book was upside down, yet he pretended to read it. Haha.
Something that took me by surprise is how much my 11 year old liked the box! He is very artistic and loves anything that allows him to get creative. He also loves to help his little brother. Them working on the activities together was not something I anticipated, but I was so happy to see.
And next came out the slime. I said “Gross!”, they said “Cool!”.
I can’t even tell you how long they played with the slime. They loved it. Can these pictures lie?
Love that kid!
You may notice that there a lot of bat items in the box. Appropriately so, the theme this month was based around fear. The words “Fear not” were the reoccurring message in every game. The box brought this little pillow that they were able to decorate with a fabric marker that was included, reminding my little one to “fear not”. Clearly the side of the pillow that is in the picture below was courtesy of my oldest. He is such a great big brother!
So he loves his Buddy Box! I love it because it’s a way for him to experience the Bible at his level — and that includes chatty teeth! I want my boys to know that God’s love is relevant, real, and even fun!
