S received the 25 month old boy box this month. Here is what was inside:

Handprint Art Kit from Pearhead – I was excited to receive this kit in our box. It included pink and blue paints, a tray for the paint and the canvas. I decided to use it to make snowflake art with S instead of the handprints though. I used painter tape to block off a snowflake shape and then let S go to town with blue paints to cover the canvas. I peeled the tape off when it dried to reveal the snowflake. It worked pretty well, though some paint leaked under the tape.

Chunky Puzzle from Melissa & Doug – S loves puzzles so this was great for us. I actually tried to buy this puzzle over a garage sale over the summer, but the lady was so snooty about it that I decided to leave it there. And now we have a brand new one instead. Things have a way of working out.

I Took the Moon for a Walk from Barefoot Books – I thought the illustrations in this book were beautiful. S listened to the story once and then returned to asking for his old favorites instead. I think he would have been more into it if it ere about trains or snow plows.

Snuggly Lotion from Episencial – To be honest, we haven’t used this yet. S and I have sensitive skin and new lotions always make me a little leary. I have heard great things about this brand though, so we will probably try it out soon.

S received the 21 month old boy box this month. Here is what was inside:

Ball

Crocodile Creek 5″ Playground Ball – S LOVES this! He loves balls and he loves trucks, so this is perfect for him. He has been carrying it around since we opened the box up yesterday. So cute!

Bandages

Ouchies Jr. Adhesive Bandages – Again with the trucks! These are great. I know that a lot of kids insist on wearing bandages even when they don’t need to, so we will be prepared if S ever gets to be like that. We’ve never needed to put a bandage on him, but I know that day is coming with my rough and tumble boy. It is good to be prepared!

Book

Barefoot Books Octopus Opposites by Stella Blackstone and Stephanie Bauer – We love Barefoot Books, so this is a welcome addition to our collection! I love the bright colors, and S has been really into his other opposites books lately, so this will be great.

Snacks

Plum Organics Fruit Straws – We love getting snacks in our Citrus Lane boxes, and this is no exception. My only concern is that these might be a little old for S, but I think if I cut them up for him that it will probably be fine.

Hand Sanitizing Wipes

CleanWell All Natural Hand Sanitizing Wipes – I love hand sanitizing wipes, but we have never tried this brand before. They have an orange vanilla scent that is going to take some getting used to, but these will be used up for sure. S has been using the ball to knock this canister over, and he thinks it is great fun!

Extras

This month’s box also included a free trial offer from FabKids and a set of cardboard bowling pins to decorate and play with with the ball.

All told, this was one of my favorite Citrus Lane boxes that we have received. We will use everything, and S loves it all, as usual. I am just hoping that they come out with a discount code for 6 month memberships soon.

Did you get a Citrus Lane box this month? What did you think of it? And what was inside?!
