I was kindly sent the April box from Mud & Bloom, a monthly craft kit for children which is aimed at getting children outdoors more. Connecting with nature and being active in the garden with planting activities etc.
Mud & Bloom was set up just over a year ago and is a monthly subscription delivering 4 seasonal nature crafts that are free of plastic materials and packaging. Certified organic seeds are used where possible and organic, peat free compost pellets are included in each box to enable subscribers to get growing straight away.
The boxes fit through the letter box so there is no worry of missing the post man and that makes it a great treat for little ones who love to get their own post through the door.
Included in our box were organic carrot seeds and organic wheat grain to plant with the enclosed compost pellets. Sidewalk chalk to document the life cycle of a puddle, glass bead kit to create a water cycle bracelet. Muslin Squares and thread, a wooden lolly stick and instruction cards.
The first project we created was the water cycle bracelet which was a really cute little project. Each bead represented one step on of the water cycle. Evie loved making her own and only needed help to fasten the ends.
Another project included was Batik eggs which is something we are yet to try. Now that we have an abundance of eggs from the chickens this could be a good excuse to use some up! One thing I loved doing growing up was colouring eggs at Easter so I am looking forward to this one.
There is an In The Woods? nature walk card for us to take out when we walk Poppy. A picture guide of things to spot while we are out.
One of my favourite bits is the Nature News! card. This details everything that is happens in April including plants, animals and even a bird of the month! So much information and learning to be had and so much fun too!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
