New Subscription for Kids- Appleseed Lane October Review

This had to be one of my favorite boxes of the month. It was just one of those boxes I am so happy our family got to try. Appleseed Lane is a new subscription out there for little ones, and I am so impressed with our first box.

What is Appleseed Lane?
Appleseed Lane is a great box for kids. Each month Appleseed Lane will send a fun and engaging box filled with science experiments and lesson-based crafts sent directly to your door. These boxes are geared towards kids ages 4 to 10 (and adults J). Cost per month is $23. You can also add addition supplies if there are more kiddos in the family for an additional $9.95 per child.

Appleseed Lane
Halloween Box

At first sight I loved that the Appleseed Lane Box was so organized and the presentation was just great.  I was super excited to see that the theme was some great Halloween projects. With our schedules being so hectic, we finally managed a night of crafts and fun the other night, and our little one had a blast.

The box laid out each project very nicely, and came with perfect easy to read instructions.

Each project in the Appleseed Lane box is packaged up with everything you need to do that project. I love that everything is included, and is ready to use for each project. There was no running around to get anything, and we could just enjoy the fun time with our little one without chaos. (sometimes that happens when we realize we do not have everything we need to make or do what we started).

#1 Frankenstein Slime Container
Our little one is a couple weeks away from 3, so we still needed to help her out with this one, since she rather put the tape on me, daddy or herself, rather than complete the slime container. It really is hard to say no to her creativity at times though.  We also had to do the cutting, but she helped with putting on the ears, which were corks (so inventive), and all other items for the face. Our little one immediately put it out next to our indoor hallowen d├ęcor, and was very proud.
She was giving us a loud monster roar, hand gestures and all! 

#2 Monster Slime
I know Appleseed Lane is for kids, but I was super excited about this project. I love mixing things up and seeing what happens. Daddy was a little skeptical at first when I told our little one to pour the whole thing of glue into a cup. I really love projects that are step by step projects that go quickly, because it keeps the little one’s attention throughout the project. She got a kick out of the slime for sure! It was a little weird feeling.

#3 Glowing Ghost
I loved this project! This seriously was so easy, and such a good idea if I ever have a Halloween party. After making the Ghost we hung it up right away, and turned the lights out. “OH COOL!” the little one exclaimed when she realized the glowstick was inside.  It is so fun to watch her experience new and exciting things.

#4 Critter Soap
Our little one loves animals, but not so much into bugs.  She was, however, very excited to play with the play beetle and spider that was included in this Appleseed Lane box. We immediately had her place the bugs in the soap, and then poured the hot soap liquid into the molding. Within an hour the soap was already hard.  In a complete brain malfunction, I forgot to take a picture of the soap afterward, and we have already since used it.

The little one loved the badge chart and sticker that is included in the Appleseed Lane box, and was very proud to have earned her Halloween badge. 

Appleseed Lane also included this cute little book, Seedlings, that has some fun learning/ scientific information for kids growing minds!

I am loving this new Appleseed Lane subscription box. I actually think this is one of those boxes that  I will keep around for awhile for our little one. I love the ease and convenience this box brings with it as well. With a very busy household ease and convenience is always a plus, and I love how organized each project is. And easy to clean up. We went very smoothly from one project to the next, and completed the whole box in one sitting. We might spread the projects out next time. In A’s (Daddy) opinion, this was his favorite kid box to work on with our little one, and he is already excited to work on November’s box with H (Harley is our little ones name). So overall the whole family gives Appleseed Lane a huge round of applause and an A+, we all love it!

Also Appleseed Lane is giving back, they have partnered with the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless on a "Get 1, Give 1" holiday gift campaign. For every subscription or gift certificate $25 or above that is purchased between now and the beginning of December, Appleseed Lane is giving away one box to the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless to help provide holiday gifts for kids in need. Appleseed Lane’s goal is 500 donated boxes!
