How excited were my kids when the postman delivered a box for them with their names on it!
They were even more excited when they opened the box and saw what was inside.
Funky Elephant Trunks are a box full of children’s activities tailor-made for 3 to 7 year olds.
Funky Elephant trunks are home-delivered and come personally addressed to your child.
Trunks are full of creative, fun and exciting activities and come with everything kids need to complete the projects, all they need is their imagination.
We received a sibling box, so there were enough supplies for both my kids.
The theme of our box was Wind, and our projects were making a wind car, a wind chime and a windmill.
The kid’s decided they wanted to make the wind car first and volunteered their daddy to help.
First a quick check to make sure we have all the materials ready.
Time to decorate with stickers and drawings.
Next came the all important construction phase.
Miss 5 was able to follow her dad’s instructions and did nearly all of it by herself. Master 3 needed some help from daddy but was really pleased with himself when finished.
After some minor tweeking and a final check, they were ready for an engineering inspection by Miss 5.
Tick of approval from the engineer.
And it was time to race!
Our next project was to make a wind chime.
This was a very simple project that only required the kids to colour in the wooden heart pieces using the oil pastel crayons included in the trunk.
The kids were so engrossed in what they were doing that they didn’t even notice I was taking photos.
Master 3 was so happy that he could do this one all by himself.
They were both so proud of their final product. Both wind chimes are now hanging near our front door.
The last project in the trunk was make a windmill.
This project required the kids to colour in the cardboard piece that spins around. They both needed a little help from me at the end to assemble the windmill.
This was a great project for Master 3 because it didn’t matter how well he coloured in the cardboard, it still looked fabulous when folded in the windmill shape.
Both kids only wanted to colour one side of the cardboard, which is why these are white on the inside. They’ve told me the will finish colouring the other side soon.
Overall, they had a great time creating these items and they have asked several times when the next “Elephant box” is arriving.
Trunks are available on a 2 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription. The trunk is addressed to your child so it makes it all the more fun and exciting!
Great gift for a child that already has everything and a perfect idea to share with relatives when they ask what to get the kids for Christmas!
