When I first came across Spurbox last year, I thought it was an educational box subscription service based on its name. However, after reading more about Spurbox, I realised that it is more than just a subscription box service (you can read the various subscription box services I’ve reviewed here).
Spurbox conducts art classes, baking classes, Read-and-Craft (RAC) sessions, and soap-making classes to name a few. It also sells art and kitchen supplies. And of course they offer educational and craft subscription boxes. The target age group for the subscription boxes ranges from 12+months to 10 years old.
Snowman Cake Pop Baking Class
The class ran for 90 minutes and included the process of baking, storytime and craft time! I feel that the class was organised very well in terms of progressing from baking to storytime and to craft. There was little time wasted in that 90 minutes – the children were engaged fully – so I think that makes for a successful class.
Lesson started off with an introduction and demo, and at each step, there was demo too so the kids were clear what they were supposed to do.
The kids loved the baking process and they were able to handle most of the processes on their own.
We only stepped in to help when they needed assistance.
While the cakepops were baking, the kids went for storytime.
And after that they coated the cakepops with white chocolate and decorated them.
The kids finished off with craft while waiting for the cakepops to dry before packing.
Overall, hubby and I thought it was a well-planned and enjoyable class for both adults and kids!
Santa Mug Pottery Class
Similar to the baking class, every time there was a new step, there’d be a demonstration first to ensure the kids knew what to do.
This was a 3-hour class and pottery was something new to the kids. In fact, it was the first time for my hubby as well, so this was definitely something memorable for all of us.
The shaping and moulding were fun but slightly tedious, especially for the kids. My girl was initially apprehensive about touching the wet clay with her hands but she was eventually convinced that it would be much easier to mould the clay without the gloves.
The main highlight for the kids appeared to be painting the mug and I think my hubby enjoyed himself moulding the mug with my boy.
These are the end products! 😀
We would highly recommend the Spurbox classes. Simple, educational and yet packed with fun. In fact, I just saw that among the many classes that Spurbox is organising in January, there’s a rooster pineapple tart baking class and a colourful kueh bangkit class and both look awesome!
I will review the Spurbox advent calendar box in a separate post because this post has gotten too long! Till then! 😀
