Passion Behind The Business:
Growing up, I loved school and loved learning. I did not want to miss a day of school. There was something about learning that excited me. Now, as a mom, I want my child to have that same excitement. My son is an active little boy who responds better to hands-on creative ways of learning. Therefore, I am always looking for creative ways to keep him excited about learning, but sometimes a lack of time can hinder the best intentions. One day, after spending hours researching activities online, I wondered how many moms were experiencing the same struggle ̶̶ finding time to gather activities for their kids that were not just fun but educational, too. I knew I could not be the only mom experiencing this dilemma, so I decided to create Kidable Adventures. Kidable Adventures creates hands-on educational products for kids that help them learn through creative play. We do all the work, so mom (or dad) won’t have to. Our mission is to create excitement about learning.

I don’t know about your area but it’s down right freezing here and cabin fever is settling in. Doodlebug bag has come to the rescue with that though! Children get cabin fever just as much as adults if not more so. It’s sometimes a challenge finding things for them to do that does not require staring at a screen.
Doodlebug Busy Bag comes with everything you need to create 6 different crafts. You can spread them out over a few days, or do them all in one day. Depending on the time of year it is, the monthly kit will have a holiday theme. The themes they may cover are: New Year’s Day, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Summer, July 4th, Back to School, Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Christmas. The kit I received was Christmas themed.
There are different subscription levels: One month, monthly, two months, three months, six months and one year. The one time kit costs $17.99 and the one year runs $179.88.
The crafts are easy to do and will keep children of all ages engaged and busy. I used this kit with my 4 yr old niece. She was able to do all the crafts with some adult supervision and had a blast. She was so proud of her creations afterwards.
Kidable Adventures was generous enough to give away one busy bag to a lucky reader. Giveaway is open to US only and runs from 1/14 to 1/28.
