Day At The Farm: A Kids Night In Box Review!
During our partnership with Night In Boxes, we will be receiving various Night In boxes to share with you each month. Even if you’re not interested in purchasing this subscription service, we hope you will find some inspiration for time connecting with your loved ones. This month, contributor Ellen got to try out a Kids Night In Box! Find out more about her experience below!

Recently we had rain showers on a sunny day – odd! The kids and I decided to try the Kids Night In Box – Day At the Farm. We had so much fun! The box included everything we needed for afternoon fun while waiting for the rain showers to pass.
The box included a book to read, instructions for various activities, a craft (all supplies included), snacks and a lemonade drink, animal visors (which my kids were convinced were masks), and cards to learn animal yoga.
We started by reading the book A Busy Day at The Farm. My kids like the other book by this author called Click, Clack, Moo. This book was just as fun!
Next on the list was making farm animals. The instructions were easy to follow and thorough.
These are are painted animals drying.
Here is our complete farm! We took the suggestion from the instruction book and used our original box to ‘fence in’ our barnyard.
It was time to attempt animal yoga. There were lots of cards to choose from. Each pose we tried ended in lots of giggles and laughter. Turns out, we’re not a coordinated bunch but we have fun trying!
After burning some energy, the kids refueled with the snack and lemonade provided, while creating a farm scene.
We finished by having a hoedown, which was on the Kids Night In Box website. While we won’t be joining the square dancing circuit anytime soon (there are those coordination issues again!), we had a blast trying to keep up with the lively music and dancing in the music video.
My kids are learning about farm animals in preschool so the timing of this box was perfect! We enjoyed ourselves and, better yet, made great memories together.

Originally from Appleton, I’ve enjoyed exploring this area of Wisconsin with my family! Once I became a mom, I searched for ways to keep busy and active, and use Washington County Busy Kids as a go-to resource for events, ideas and new places to visit. I stay at home with my four year old twins (Collin and Kate), while their big brother is at school (Joel, age eight). Previous to staying at home, my career was spent in Human Resources and IT. I enjoy being outdoors, having coffee first thing in the morning, and crafting. This area has much to offer, from festivals to parks to story time, and I enjoy the small community feel.
