Kiwi Crate Review – August 2014
Kiwi Crate is a monthly craft, activity and learning subscription box for kids.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Kiwi Crate
The Cost: Regular monthly subscription is $19.95 a month.
The Products: Crafts and DIY projects for kids, with supplemental learning kits, booklets and activities. Crates are filled with materials and inspiration to encourage creativity and curiosity. Projects cover a number of developmental areas through art, science, imaginative play.
Kiwi Crate comes with little booklets detailing all the info you need for each project.
The first project is making a floating sailboat.
I love that the instructions are detailed and illustrated.
(The sailboat materials).
The next project is making Watercolor Animals. (I like how each project lets you know how much adult involvement is needed and how messy the project is – this one is high level messy!)
The booklet will illustrate the items included and items you may need from home (for example, scissors).
(The materials for the Watercolor project). It was very smart of them to include a mess mat!
Kiwi Crate also includes two mini projects to explore the theme more. For this month the projects are “clay boat” and “how many drops?”
Since this is my first full month with Kiwi Crate after my trial box, I also got a welcome gift of scissors! (The box also came with a sticker for the activities this month, and a fold out sheet for your child to collect the stickers of all the boxes they complete).
And last, Kiwi Crate included a sneak peek of the upcoming themes!
Verdict: I am so impressed with Kiwi Crate! I love that all the projects are gender-neutral and involve science. Plus the packaging, branding, etc. is all excellent. I definitely recommend this box for any kid in your life!
