Starting out the new year I told myself I wanted to declutter our home, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. I’ve created several bags of clothing items from our closet and a number of bags of toys from our kids’ playroom.
Yet, we manage to add more toys — thanks to my husband. He’s a big kid at heart. It’s a blessing, but sometimes it can be a burden when you’re trying to clean up the mess.
Our kids’ playroom is next to the kitchen. This means it needs to be tidy or else I could slip on a toy while transitioning a hot pot of pasta from the stove into the sink. Oh, and believe me, it’s come close to happening.
More Toys For The Boys
When Booster Bricks reached out to me early in the year, I was a bit hesitant to collaborate. It wasn’t them, it was me.
Think about it, more toys in our home? I had images of having to walk through a number of LEGO pieces on a daily basis. I almost declined the idea of collaborating with them.
After some research on the brand, I decided to set up a chat with the CEO. I wanted to learn more and find out what their goals were for working with me, a blogger/influencer. It was nice to hear what they were doing and how they started the company.
Recycled LEGO pieces that have been previously loved by other fanatics are placed into a box and shipped to kids (and even adults) throughout the US. The best part is the challenges that come with the boxes.
Lessons From Booster Bricks
For parents, this subscription box is a no-brainer. Honestly, if you’re looking for a way to bond with your child, then I recommend this subscription box. I’ve worked with Booster Bricks twice, and I always mention their service to family and friends with kids. The more time I spent interacting with the brand, the more I realized our boys were loving it and that there were lessons for parents to share with their kids as well. I’ve shared three below:
Make use out of what you’re given.
A lot of the times people ask whether or not I was hoping for a girl. Honestly, I wasn’t and I never imagined myself raising one. In fact, I didn’t imagine myself with a third child either. I was fine with just our two boys.
At Booster Bricks, the subscription boxes come with a variety of LEGO pieces from different play sets. This allows your child to be more creative. I’ve made a number of things for our boys and they’ve even made their own ideas come to life.
Dedicate time to those you love.
The challenges can sometimes take time to create, and it’s a great way to bond with your child. Our five-year-old son enjoys taking out his Booster Bricks box to work on them. He even creates challenges for my husband and me to do. Like the time he asked me to build him a bridge for his city.
I love that I don’t need to hand off an iPad or turn on a show for our kids to keep busy. With Booster Bricks, it’s all about creating something with our kids.
Work together through the challenges.
There are challenges that we face on a daily basis that make us question whether or not we can face them alone.
One of the perks of having a family is that you don’t need to. You’ve got your tribe to help you get through the tough ones.
Have you ever tried something that your entire family enjoyed? What was it?
