*I received a free Story Box in exchange for my honest review and receive compensation for new subscribers directed from my page. I attest that all opinions are my own.*

As you probably already know if you follow us regularly, my little girl has a voracious appetite for books. Our bedtime story time keeps getting longer & longer. We have exhausted all of our books. She knows them all by heart now. That’s why we were so excited to receive a one month subscription to Story Box. When the box arrived, the books were nicely wrapped & included a parent guide with a breakdown of different age groups & how you could apply them to learning for that age. It also included a list of age appropriate activities for each story. The best part is the books are yours to keep.

The two books that we received were ‘Outside’ & ‘Go to Sleep, Little Farm.’

They were both an immediate hit with my daughter. She loved both books, but she really fell in love with ‘Go to Sleep, Little Farm’. I did as well. It was like being in a dream. We often take craft inspiration from books we read & we did just that with this one. We made our own DIY scratch cards & etched out our own dream-like scenes.

Mix equal parts tempura paint & dish soap in a container. Brush the paint over the top of the crayon & let dry. I was impatient & used a hair dryer. Once dry, use a toothpick to scratch of the black paint.

My daughter adored this craft. We made a pile of them to set aside for later.
