Back with another OwlCrate Jr unboxing! I have to say, I’m loving the OwlCrate Jr themes this year – first dragons in January and now witches for February! Two of my personal favourites! Here’s what was included in this witchy box … 

How amazingly adorable is the Kiki’s Delivery Service inspired lunch tote? Designed by Anna & Clark Daniel from Pretend Friends, both my daughter and I are in love with this design. So stinkin’ cute!

Remember that magical monthly recipe card you received in January? Well here’s where you will store them! Your very own Grimoire!! This recipe grimoire binder was designed by Marisol Ortega and was inspired by one of my personal favourite past OwlCrate Jr pick — Love, Sugar, Magic. 

And speaking of magical monthly recipes, this month’s recipe is for some delicious magic wands! Pretzels + chocolate candy … what could be bad about that?

If you’ve been here reading these unboxing for awhile you’ll know I love love love getting anything stationery and love love love anything sparkly … so enter this wonderfully sparkly, rainbow wand gel pen? Yeah, I’m pretty happy about it. 

Another item I always love seeing in our boxes? Tea from the tea wizards of Riddles Tea Shoppe. This Spellorium Anti-hex blend tea (inspired by The Apprentice Witch) smells exactly like after eight chocolates. Yum! I love a good peppermint tea! 

Get crafting and create some magic in your neighbourhood! Design some fairy doors and place them throughout your neighbourhood (or in your own backyard) with this magical fairy door craft kit! I can’t wait for the temperatures to warm up a bit this spring and place these around our backyard!

Finally — the book! I have been eagerly anticipating this month’s pick, The Grace of Wild Things, by Heather Fawcett. Anne of Green Gables is part of my identity and I cannot count the number of times I watched the movies growing up … I can seriously recite it word for word … so anytime an Anne retelling comes along, you know I’m game! This is a fun Anne of Green Gables retelling, with a magical witchy twist! This OwlCrate Jr special edition came with an exclusive cover, signed book plate, a letter from the author, as well as a QR code to scan for extension discussion questions from the author. Jane Mount created this beautiful enamel pin to continue in the 2023 Enamel Archive monthly pin collection, inspired by the book.
