My boys regularly ask if we can do crafty stuff but the thought of dragging our huge box of supplies out tends to put me off a little. I’m not a very organised mother so our craft time generally consists of them drawing on paper or cutting out shapes – not exactly riveting stuff. When I heard about Funky Elephant, I couldn’t wait to learn more about them and was thrilled when they agreed to let me review their product.

Funky Elephant was established by two Australian mothers that wanted to do something to keep their children entertained while also allowing them to learn and develop new skills – and the Funky Trunk was born! Each trunk is jam-packed full of exciting activities for children aged 3-7 to do and is very conveniently delivered direct to your door. The trunks are purchased via a subscription with 2 month, 6 month and 12 month options on offer (free shipping on all Australian subscriptions!) and for an additional $12 they will add extra materials that can be shared with other children if you have more than one.

My eldest boy (5.5) was the lucky one to open the trunk and jump into the activities inside. He’s probably the most crafty of my three and the contents of this box was right up his alley. He set out the contents on the kitchen table while I read the instructions to him. The trunk contained three different activities all based around a similar theme – in our trunk it was farm yard animals – and scissors, glue, crayons, all the bits and bobs he needed to complete each activity and an instruction guide with helpful tips and some useful trivia and more.

So, busy parents, not only do you not have to organise the craft activities yourself, you don’t have to leave the house to get the supplies! Overall, the trunk was a big hit with my eldest and gave him a solid 2-3 hours of activities to do, most simple enough for him to complete himself but some did require my help. If you’ve got crafty little ones, I highly recommend subscribing – you won’t regret it!
