The Happy Trunk Review

Are you looking for a solution to the kids declaring, “Mommy, I am so bored with nothing fun to do!” If so, The Happy Trunk is the perfect idea to keep kids busy on rainy days, school breaks and even party ideas.

What is The Happy Trunk? This monthly subscription box service delivers fun crafts projects and a science experiment right to the house. My children love to get mail delivered to them and they also enjoy doing arts, crafts and science experiments so I knew that this would be the perfect enrichment project for them. No worries if you aren’t ready to commit to a monthly service at first because you can check it out by purchasing a one-time box……although I am sure your kids will beg you to continue The Happy Trunk like mine did!

You can choose to set up The Happy Trunk for special target age groups including one for ages 3-7 or 8-11. Each box includes everything needed for your child(ren) to do at least 3 craft projects and one science experiment. There are fun monthly themes and each gender neutral trunk is appealing to both boys and girls equally so everyone will have fun with The Happy Trunk.

The Happy Trunk Review

My children had a great time completing the “Winter Wonderland” projects including a “Make Your Own Snow Globe”, “Stained Glass Snowman” and “Ice Paintings”. They spent over two hours one rainy afternoon working on projects and proudly displayed each one for the family. My daughter especially enjoyed creating the “Stained Glass Snowman” out of all the many items included in the kit. The instructions are very easy for children to follow and my children (ages 5, 6 and 7) needed very little adult supervision once we had discussed each project. There was even a fun pair of extra scissors included with a nice note that said, “We are so excited to be doing projects with you! Many of our projects require scissors, so here’s one to get you started”……a nice touch!
