Koalapak Review and Giveaway

We were recently sent a Mega Pack from Koalapak to review.

Koalapak are a craft subscription service who provide educational science and craft based projects which are hands on curriculum linked activities, which have been reviewed by educational experts.
We recieved the materials to decorate a cardborad 'garden', decorate an apron, and some plant pots, a gnome to paint and the equiptment to sow some seeds (carrots and cress. Theres also an instruction leaflet with details of the curriculum points covered.

We had great fun making the garden by sticking on all the foam sticker bugs, decorating the pots and sewing the seeds, each activity gave us plenty of things to talk about and the kids all love anything thats crafty and hands on.

The apron was a big hit as a team project and we got good and messy painting with our hands.

Its been really fun watching our cress grow and i forgot actually how quick cress does grow! great for kids because really withing a day there was noticeable activity in the pots so the kids really stayed interested.We really enjoyed everything about the pack, all of the activities were fun and offered lots of educational stimulation without the kids even noticing, priced from £3.95 to £16.95 plus postage the range offers great options for all budgets and I feel like ours was great value for money. it was a good half a day of solid activity plus all the follow on activitiesMy only improvement would have been to have pictures of the finished project on the instructions. It wasnt until after we had decorated that it dawned on me the garden would have been better stood vertically than horizontally and I think kids find instruction following easier with a picture to guide them. Make no mistake though we love our garden and you can see The Golden Child talking about it here
