Start Planning for Summer Fun with Busy Tot Box (Now 20% Off!)

Summer’s almost here, and it’s time to start planning activities for the kids. This may include camp, sports, play dates, vacations and sleepovers, but chances are that there will still be plenty of times when you’ll hear your kids say, “Mom, we’re bored!” That’s the perfect time to get out a Busy Tot Box!

With a subscription to Busy Tot Box, you receive a theme-oriented package every month that includes 4 craft kits, a snack, recipes, a surprise gift/activity, and fun facts. My boys were so excited when our Busy Tot Box arrived. Ours had a fall theme, and everything was tied to Thanksgiving and the autumn season. For example, there was a gift bag that one of my sons decorated with a Smiley Scarecrow face. He later used it to wrap a birthday gift for a friend! My other son colored a squirrel picture on a puzzle, which he then took apart and put together again. The boys also made a Bountiful Blessing Wreath and decorated a farm scene with a ton of stickers!

Here’s a picture of one of my boys coloring the squirrel puzzle…

…and the farm scene that my other son created.

For the whole family, we received recipes for an easy-to-make Goodbye Turkey Tetrazzini (for the leftover Thanksgiving turkey) and Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping. There were also fun facts that I shared with the kids about cranberries, pecans, Thanksgiving, autumn, farms, and more.

A Busy Tot Box is such a great idea for entertaining children. They’ll enjoy the element of surprise each month, have many days’ worth of activities to keep them busy, and even learn something along the way! This is also a terrific resource for homeschoolers or for grandparents to give to their grandchildren as a perpetual gift! And, of course, it will help to keep them happy over the summer.

Not surprisingly, Busy Tot Box is the brainchild of a mother, Katrina Edwards, who was looking for some great educational activities and craft projects for her kids. Go to to learn more about Busy Tot Box. Their subscription prices are very reasonable, especially if you sign up for more than one month. (A year’s subscription is only $12 a month!) You can also have extra materials added for other children in the family for a small fee. And, for a limited time, a Busy Tot Box subscription costs even less with the discount below!
