Last month we were able to try something new! Do you like getting subscription boxes? I’ve always enjoyed them for myself but this time we tried one for the kids! It’s called Kids Night In Boxes and each month is full of fun crafts and activities with a different theme. In March the theme was Mission Space. This would have been awesome for the Space Week we did last summer!

I could not believe all the space themed activities included in this box! Instead of doing them all in one night, we spaced out our activities after school. The kids are home super early from school in the afternoons and sometimes we are looking for things to do. All the supplies were included in the box including an Astronaut Training Guide to help us through it all. We couldn’t wait to get started!
In addition to the fun crafts and activities in the box, they also provide recipe ideas to enhance your experience with each box. For our space themed box, the recipes were Galaxy Strawberries and Hot Rockets. This was a fun way to get the kids in the kitchen. While Gavin made the whipping cream, Graylie prepared the colors for our recipe. Once the whipping cream is ready, you add fun colors like red, blue, or purple and then pour it over some fresh strawberries. It was very yummy!
I loved that they included Space Themed Yoga cards in this box. There were actually 10 cards in all with different poses. The cards had fun space facts on the other side.
Creating Rocket Artwork was one of our favorite activies in this Space Themed Box. The kids were able to follow a video that gave steps to create their own rocket drawing. Then they were able to color and add stickers to their masterpieces!
The most exciting thing in the box for my son was the astronaut food! Why didn’t I think of doing this during our summer space week last year? It is such a simple thing but the kids loved it. This was part of their Eat Like An Astronaut Mission. This particular one was an ice cream sandwich. I was able to break it in half so they could each try it. They liked it but said they still prefer regular ice cream sandwiches.
Those are just the highlights from our Spaced Themed Activity Box from Kids Night In. We also decorated a telescope to find glow in the dark stars, played with our space hand puppets, read a great educational book that was included, and did a rocket launching experiment. This box was so full of fun activities for us to do together.
Summer is coming up very quickly! I would highly recommend checking out these Kids Night In Boxes to help keep your kids busy and screen free this summer. They even have other suggested activities so you could easily make this last an entire week. We love themes and are definitely looking forward to incorporating this into our DIY Summer Camp this year!
