Weekend Box Launches Entrepreneur-themed Easter Box
Posted on the 9 April 2019
The holiday headache of keeping the little ones entertained has been solved this Easter, with a special edition activity box that really is the gift that keeps on giving.
Weekend Box's latest monthly box, the 'Business Builder Box', provides kids with tools and support to create artistic masterpiece, as well as a business best practice guide that offers advice, tips and instructions on how to turn their creations into enterprises.
Developed in collaboration with charity Traidcraft, the limited edition box gives little ones everything they will need to start their own block-printing business from scatch.
The box is suitable for ages 7+ priced at £8.95 and includes all creative materials needed to make 15+ printed items; business top tips; sales and marketing ideas; fun finance games; a sales tracker; 31-day business builder wall chart and more.
The Weekend Box is the brainchild of young entrepreneur Andy Stephenson, who has been described as having many of the same qualities as a young Richard Branson… by Richard Branson himself!
The Newcastle-based entrepreneur is a Durham University graduate and came up with the idea while working in the digital sector.
Andy explains: “It all started when I was trying to find some gifts for my nieces and nephews. I was trawling the internet, but I couldn’t find anything that was the right mix of educational yet fun. So, I came up with the idea of a Weekend Box, and I made my own and gave it to a friend with children to see what they thought. When the feedback was positive, I realised I could be on to something.
"Within six months I’d sent out 1,000 boxes, by 18 months 20,000 boxes and now, five years in, we post out around a quarter of a million Weekend Boxes each year.”
Weekend Box was established in 2013 and offers a membership club designed to provide high quality activities for parents and children. Each box provides a mix of creative content and fun activities that help parents and children engage together.
