The Mass Box

As you can see from our featured image and its caption, we have been the lucky recipients of a monthly box from The Mass Box. It’s pretty great, and we can’t wait to share it with you!

As busy American women, life is hectic. We’re wives. And moms. We’re workers (whether at an office away from home, an office within the home, or the kitchen and bedrooms) regardless of employment status. We’ve got a lot going on, and if you’re anything like me, your domestic church has seen better days by this time of the year; especially now that it’s ordinary time again!

Enter The Mass Box.

About The Mass Box

I love that this company started as a family and is now run by moms, dads, and young adults. It was founded because founders Ashley & Raymond felt pulled to do more with their three young children (five and younger). The kids struggled to behave at Mass (sound familiar?). They found that on the rare occasion they could prepare ahead of time with a craft, things went more smoothly. Ashley’s background is TV production, so the family decided to conduct a 100-family “trial run” of The Mass Box, which included a children’s show and companion materials.

How’d that work for them? According to their About Us page, they “now send out kits to hundreds of families and produce the show for every Sunday and Holy Day!” That’s so awesome!

Mass Box

They have a simple mission: “We at the Mass Box are a team of moms and dads and young adults passionate about passing the faith on to the next generation.” They continue to do this through the collection and distribution of  the craft materials you’ll need alongside a webisode craft show that will demonstrate how to make the crafts and talk about the Mass topics that correlate.

A Photo Tour: Inside Our Mass Box

Little Miss was psyched (to put it mildly) that we’d have crafts to do together that related to the Mass. I was excited to see what the hype was all about.

This is what the box looked like immediately upon my opening it. That’s a really nice, high-quality booklet there with activities that extend the crafts. SO COOL!

This is EVERYTHING that was in the box for May. It had each craft organized in a lovely zip-closure baggie with a label (it’s foolproof!), which I appreciated. Little Miss was most excited for the “Bee” Not Afraid craft.

Here’s the completed crafts from the May box. Aren’t they just adorable?!

They also have things available for a one-time purchase: a family Paschal Candle Kit ($19.95) and a comic/activity book/DVD called Catholic Investigators: Church Mission, which familiarizes kiddos with items in the church ($10.00).

If these aren’t your thing, exactly, but your kiddos like to read, they’ve got you covered there, too. They’ve got a monthly magazine for kids ages 4-8. You can purchase this via a 3-Month Prepay ($5.32/issue) or a 12-Month Prepay ($4.97/issue).

    Awesome review!! I would love to do this… but, we haven’t taken time to budget it in as a family yet. 🤔 Maybe I’ll get serious about this idea – if it helps our son participate a little better in Mass…!

      Thanks! It’s not in our current budget, either, but it’s so cool that we’re taking another look at it!

    What a super cool box!

    I love this! I’m used to seeing subscription boxes for perfume, clothes and makeup. I love the idea of a box for helping us help littles grow in their faith!

    We tried this out as a pilot program and really loved it. It was a lot of fun and also kept the gospel at the forefront of our minds.

    Seriously. I really need to check this out. It’s so perfect for my girls who are all into crafts. What a great review!

    I really need to look into this because I feel like my four year old is so interested in what’s happening during mass and he would appreciate the extra curriculum (if you will) to teach him about what’s happening.

    We’ve got a special on now at the Mass Box – until June 20th, if you order you get a free copy of our church tour activity book and DVD! http://www.themassbox.com/freechurchtour
