WIN with Bumble Box: Giveaway

30 March 2020| ,

What are you doing during lockdown?

Some people are on the frontline and still going to work each day, some are trying to keep their heads above water working from home and juggling all the things, some are doing their best to entertain kiddies with crafts and activities, some are starting new hobbies like writing, sewing and painting, some are indulging in self care with Netflix, a good story book, baking a new recipe or bath bomb baths and some are spring cleaning and using this time to get everything organised and in order.

If I’m going to be honest – I’m doing all of the above. Well, trying to.

As a natural planner and organiser – I am setting tasks to spring clean cupboards and seasonal wardrobes to donate and sell clothes, clearing out our garage and store room, sort through our girls’ playroom and old toys, and get all their school art and memories together.

One of our favourite ways to store our special items is to make beautiful albums of our girls art.

Yes, you know what I am talking about.

ALL the art pieces that come home from the very first Moms & Babes or Baby Bright Stars classes (that you actually did for them!), and then every piece of their great masterpieces at school, at home, at Kids Church, you name it… All those beautiful creations make their way home – and there is not enough space on the walls, on the fridge or even in storage for the piles and piles of beautiful creative showcases of your little humans.

But then the beautiful Paula solves all your problems with: Bumble Box.

Bumble Box turns your little treasures artwork into beautiful, bespoke coffee table books.

A creative and stylish way of displaying your child’s artwork that is too precious to throw away. It is the perfect gift for family and a special friend that will last a lifetime.

The Bumble Box book has an all-in-one, wrap around personalised cover. The pages are printed in premium digital press quality with accurate and natural colours. The hardcover, square book, bound in a coffee table book format is 20cm x 20cm in size and printed on 150gsm premium coated matt paper.

How it works:

  • Step 1: Bumble Box delivers an empty Bumble Box to your door. Convenient right?
  • Step 2: Fill the box up with your favourite pieces of art, 3D art, recycling crafts, paintings, letters, poetry, anything goes. Let them know once it’s ready to collect.
  • Step 3: Let the magic begin! Their little worker bees turn your precious art into a beautiful album.
  • Step 4: Your Bumble Box book is then delivered to your door. Sit back and enjoy!

During lockdown, is the perfect time to dig through your garage, storage units, cupboards and drawers to find all the art, sort through the art per child, per school, per year and put it into its correct piles. Log into the website and make your purchase. As soon as lockdown is over, Bumble Box will arrange to get your empty box to you.

Today, one very lucky reader can win one of your very own first Bumble Box albums.

  1. Love this idea, I’m so busy crafting and baking during this lockdown that this would be something exciting to win!

  2. Shoo it’s hard! Trying to set up activities for the boys and while they are busy with them, race back to my laptop to do 10 minutes of work and repeat 🤦🏼‍♀️🤣

  3. I’m doing activities from our kids’ nursery schools.
    Also doing home therapy programs for Speech and OT, oh and all the housework.

  4. Sorting my little lady’s art has been on my to-do list since forever!! I finally have the time to do it 🥳 (finished yesterday)… Between all the baking of cookies, making clay, reading loads of books and doing some work in between 🙈

  5. Love this idea, have alot of art work from my kiddies… we have been very busy doing gardening, planting veggies and lots of baking and crafts! Lots of things been meaning to do for ages. We enjoying the quality time whilst having alot to be grateful for

  6. Well I’m actually working from home so I can’t actively participate in outside playtime. Luckily dad has a few things to get done in the garden and seems that my little one quite prefers to rake up leaves and put them in plastic bags as opposed to playing with his Hot Wheels or Thomas the train set! Today was especially trying as we had no electricity. Which was all well and good during daylight hours but when the sunset and the mobiles and tablets were flat it left little much to do in the dark. We tried colouring in pictures by candle light but then eventually my little boy resigned himself to reading in the dark with a torch strapped to his head. This Bumble Box would be awesome as I know my little boy love trying new stuff and he’s an avid collector of EVERYTHING so this would definitely keep him busy 👌🏻

    1. Oh no! Nadia, I am so sorry – we were just saying how grateful we are for no load shedding during this time! Praying it stays on now!
      Good luck x

  7. Every morning my son asks if he is going to school, he misses it so much. He is only three and a half. I have been sorting and organizing my office to make more space for arts and crafts supplies. My son loves painting and experimenting with sticky glitter glue, pasting objects and cutting paper. During lockdown clearing my office with him has been a bonding experience and also and an extra bonus for him, he earned pocket money for helping.

    I have been following Bumble Box since my son started preschool and brought home his art in his project file. We have a priceless collection and I know that it will be treasured for years to come in a Bumble Box book.

    1. Aw Yolande, this can be so hard for our little people to understand! Well done for getting so much organised during this time.
      Good luck x

  8. A lot of juggling going on for sure! Trying to set up one new activity, and then yoga, colouring, playdoh, painting and TV and toys in between while I work.

  9. We’re just in survival mode – getting some crafts done and some baking occasionally, but also lots of four-year-old sass, and a fair amount of tv… I have to work too! This is a strange time…

    1. It really is a strange time Julie, quite surreal too! You are amazing for juggling all that you can between work and being a mom.
      Good luck x

  10. This is so awesome. We are taking it one day at a time! We are spending our days swimming, trying to workout and having team naps!
