I love The Happy Trunk! It is so much fun and was such a treat for my kids. What kid doesn’t love mail? What kid doesn’t love arts and craft projects? How about getting an arts and craft subscription box in the mail each month?

Mind is blown!!!

The Happy Trunk is an amazing subscription service that you can sign your child up for that encourages creativity and play. The box we received had three different activities inside. We made a video showcasing one of the sculptures. I appreciated how anything went with these designs. My daughter didn’t feel pressured to match a certain design. She did what she wanted to do and it came out perfect! No matter what she did it would have come out perfect — this meant that parental involvement was minimal.

Um…. thank you.

While I do love the more complete puzzles and crafts where the entire team gets involved, sometimes I just want my kids to be able to handle something from soup to nuts without me getting involved. Am I the only one?!
