New Year, New Subscription Box Adventures: Girls Can Crate! A Pioneering Nurses Giveaway



After discovering my own favorite subscription box for 2016, I began the hunt to find something perfect for my girls.  Girls Can Crate is a unique subscription box company inspiring girls to believe they can be and do anything by celebrating fearless women who made the world better.
We had the opportunity to review 2 of their crates, both of which were awesome as you shall soon see! 

First up was the Persevering Painters Crate, complete with every supply we'd need right down to the markers, paints, scissors, pallet, apron, and brushes... everything you see here.  Even a canvas was included.  The value was definitely there!

After reading about famous artists Frida Kahlo, we learned about color mixing and made our own creations.  I happened to have 3 extra canvases I was saving so that was perfect!  I loved teaching my kids about Frida Kahlo because she is a supreme example of a woman who overcame great hardships.  Bed ridden for months at a time, she used the time on bedrest to explore with art and became one of the most famous woman painters.

Frida Kahlo was known for painting both monkeys and flowers in her works of art.  The instructions in the kit were for a flower headband, but my daughters decided they wanted to display their flowers in a vase on the kitchen alcove.  They look beautiful!

One of my daughter's works of art painted with her Girls Can Crate supplies--an ocean meets the sky. So pretty!

Next up was the Pioneering Nurse Crate featuring Florence Nightingale, one of my very favorite women in  history.  Miss Nightingale was a wealthy, society woman who didn't find pleasure in the Jane Austen life of endless parties and dances.  Instead, she felt God calling her to be a nurse.  Before Miss Nightingale revolutionized nursing, more people died in the hospital than on the battlefield.  She was an incredible woman! If you want to know more about her, I encourage you to see the BBC movie Florence Nightingale.  As you can see, our kit came with so much great stuff!

 
Our nurse is giving her doll a bandage after she sprained her elbow.  As you can see here, one of the activities was to make a working stethoscope.  Pretty cool!

All bandaged up, the happy girl received a sticker for being a brave patient.
Ut oh, she needs a flu shot!  Her sister got lucky, as you can see in the video below, and was old enough to receive the flu mist instead!


The nurse imaginative activity was only one of many in this kit.  We also grew bacteria (gross!!), make a stethoscope, and created a life size map of the human body.  The kids definitely loved playing nurse best, though, and still get out everything to play and imagine days later.

My parents were wonderful at teaching me that I could do or be anything. I definitely want to teach my kids the same and Girls Can Crates are incredible towards that end.   

 What did you want to be when you grew up? What does your daughter want to be? I've always wanted to be a writer and have almost finished my first historical fiction novel!
 
Special thanks to the wonderful people at Artisana Organics for this review and giveaway opportunity. All opinions are honest and my own.
