We got a BabbaBox! [And you can get one too! Check out the giveaway for a 3 month membership below!]

I just want to quickly tell you what BabbaCo is all about. They send you some awesome crafty/activity ideas with all the stuff right in a box, right to your front door. Can’t get much easier than that. No thinking. No shopping. No leftovers. Just easy. This is their BabbaBox! You can subscribe to it monthly, quarterly or annually.

In our BabbaBox that we got this month is a month of rainbow fun! Plenty of rainbow activities to do!

  • A big bubble wand as well as pipe cleaners to make your own bubble wands!
  • Rainbow sunhat craft kit!
  • A Prism to explore rainbows!
  • A Rainbow of My Own‘ book to tie into your activities!
  • And with a rainbow, you need an umbrella! And that’s in there too!


We love rainbows and they hold a very special place in our heart in this house.

I grabbed the prism out of the box and gave it to Henry and asked him if he knew how or when a rainbow is formed.

He didn’t know.

I gave him a quick, informative blurb about rainbows. Mainly telling him that when it rains [and if you're lucky that the sun comes out], when the sun shines through the rain, a rainbow is formed. [Luckily, these super activities also come with explanations to them right in the BabbaBox!]

I explained that the prism is like a raindrop.

When the sun, or light, shines through it, just the right way, a rainbow will be formed.

That’s all it took. And Henry was on a quest to make and find a rainbow!

'Make a Rainbow' Hunt


We were headed out on our morning walk to the bakery and Henry took the prism with him. Before we got going, I showed him how to hold it and how to find the rainbow. It took a little bit for him to understand it, but then he was off.

He was on a mission to see what he could make a rainbow on and where it would show up.

Not only that, but when we got home from our walk, we decided to make rainbows yet another way!

Make a Rainbow with the Water Hose


It was hot and humid, and very sunny, so we broke out the water hose and sprayed it in the air to see if we could make rainbows. Once again, I did it at first, showing him where the rainbow would be. Then he took over and made rainbows and looked for them like crazy.

Plus it was such a great time to include George in the activity! He loves water and Henry loved spraying him with it. I loved hearing those giggles!

Now we’ll be off to see what other rainbows we can make! Can’t wait!

    I love seeing all your great ideas on pinterest. I’m stay at home mom and think this would be great go to activity when I’m out of ideas for the day.

  2. Hannah says

    I would love to win these for my two little boys, ages 3 and 6. We are always looking for fun activities and it’s great that everything comes packaged up for you!

  3. Elizabeth says

    I want to win these for my little boys. But I have a feeling my 9 year old girl will want to join in on the fun!

  4. Heather F. says

    I’d like to get the Babba Box for my children to share. I have four children ranging in ages from 3 to 10 who all love to make & create things. I think they’d love this & so would I!

  5. Trixie Dotson says

    This would be for my five year old daughter. I’m always looking for ways to spend some fun and educational time with her when I’m not working, and this looks like it would be perfect!

    I have a four year old and a three year old, both girls. They are very hands-on and love stuff like this.

  7. Tara says

    I have 3 kids (13, 9 & 4) and I would love this for the younger 2. I think my oldest would secretly love it too :)

  8. says

    My 4 year-old is one of my ‘challenges’ in life – he is emotional and defiant one moment, yet tough or loving in the next instant. I love him to pieces, but this up-coming school year is already seeming a bit daunting. A subscription to BabbaBox would provide us with some fun activities to get him thinking and occupied, giving this momma a bit of a break from the ongoing ‘Battle of Wills.’

  9. Carly D says

    We already have a babbaco membership and LOVE it. I would love to get one for my friend’s 3 year old for her bday in August! :)
