Mila & Pheebs create stationery and activity boxes for children. They contain a mixture of stationery, crafts, stickers, and fun items, based around a different theme each month. It’s £10 per month plus £2.99 P&P.
This month’s theme is Garden Pals!
The box comes right through the mailbox, and has a whole bunch of crafty goodies inside!
There’s also a lovely newsletter, with jokes, trivia, as well as dates for the diary.
Everything is beautifully packed.
There are at least two craft kits every month. On the left is a sew-together ladybird, and on the right is a foam bee badge.
Little C decided to do the bee badge first! There were several designs, and we got the BEE Helpful design – a very good idea!
Everyone loves stickers! There are some cute foam flowerpot stickers, perfect for a collage, plus a sheet of lovely cheerful shiny bee stickers!
Every Mila and Pheebs box contains two blank greetings cards. I love the ‘Bee Happy’ sentiment!
Little C decided to add some happy bees to that card. What a great springtime card!
These Dotty Art Sheets are always fun to do.
Not only are they jolly colours, you get lots and lots of the dot stickers to use for your own projects when you’ve finished the pictures.
There’s a lovely striped pencil with a bee eraser on the end! You can never have too many pencils, and this one is bright and easy to spot amongst the general clutter! You can also see this month’s collectible eraser, a gorgeous little butterfly sitting on a leaf. I love these erasers, they’re far too nice to use and we’re building up a fantastic collection on our bookshelves!
Finally, the colouring and puzzle sheets! The colouring pictures are lovely, and Little C always enjoys the word games, especially the wordsearch!
This is a lovely theme just as spring is coming round the corner! And it’s a nice way of bringing a bit of spring indoors when the weather is too bad to go out.
I love the mess-free aspect of these boxes. They’re also beautifully self-contained with stickers, colouring, and crafting. You might occasionally need scissors or colouring pens, but as a rule pretty much everything can be used as it is.
This is a great thing to brighten up a grey weekend, or perhaps on a long train journey. It’s compact enough to pop in a suitcase to take on holiday, and all you need to add is some drawing paper and colouring things, and you’ve got some great supplies! I love the free creativity, especially the greetings cards. I think it’s important for children to make cards!
The website says for children age six, but I think almost everything would be fine for younger children, especially things like the dotty art. The word puzzles might be a little beyond them, but parents can get involved to help out!
