Summer Adventure Box (& Giveaway!)
This summer we are doing an adventure box. There are tons of different ways to do these boxes, most probably much more creative than mine, but this is our first time to try this out and we're excited! Jack decided he wanted to do a dinosaur box, so I took a file box and painted it, glued on pictures, and then covered it all with Mod Podge. For the lid, I painted the sides and then made the top into a little felt board. Thank you, Alana, for that idea!
Each week something new and dinosaur-related will appear in the box. I've got lots of books, some art things, several activity books, some glow in the dark dinos, a puzzle, and some tattoos. Sometime in the next week or so we will head down to the museum to check out the new exhibit. We've been trying to sneak peeks all winter and now it is finally done! Later this summer Jack is going to attend a week-long class on dinosaurs there, too!
And now for the giveaway! One lucky winner will get a Jurassic Dinosaurs sticker book, a package of Super Growing Dinosaurs (these are cool!), a package of sparkly dinosaur stickers, and a copy of Big Rex, which was the first dinosaur book Jack ever owned--though this is a new copy that has not been broken in by a chewing baby. If you would like to enter the drawing, please leave a comment on this post by midnight, Sunday, June 8. I will post the winner on Monday, June 9. Good luck!
