Kiwi Crate Subscription Box Review & Coupon – May 2015 - Box

Kiwi Crate is a subscription box for children ages 3-8. It arrives every month with all the materials and instructions needed to complete 2-3 crafts centered around a theme, plus additional materials to help educate young learners! This is still my seven-year-old son’s favorite box!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This month’s theme is Interesting Insects!

On the back of the theme card (every month) is a sticker to put on my son’s Kiwi Adventures Chart that he received with his first box. It also has little paper dolls that he can color and play with on the little set they print inside every box. I love that Kiwi Crate reuses all the materials!

Every month, Kiwi Crate includes a copy of explore! magazine. My son loves this magazine! He always wants to try all of the activities in it, and it also has some cute comics and short articles that are perfect for his reading level.

This month’s projects are bug tic-tac-toe and dragonflyers! These are the instruction booklets. The instructions are always very clear and easy-to-follow. Also, along the bottom of the cover, you can see that there are indicators telling the adult three things: how messy the project will be, how much adult involvement will be required, and what skill development the project is good for. I have found these indicators to be very accurate!

These are the supplies that were included to create our color dragonflyers. Nothing else was required.

This is one of our dragonflyers and the launcher. These turned out to be so much fun! The reason there’s only one pictured is because the other one was immediately launched behind a dresser. We colored the dragonfly bodies with color-changing markers, which were really cool! Then we stuck them onto pipettes and built the little bottle launcher. You place the flyer on the straw, give it a squeeze, and it takes off! They actually get pretty good distance and speed!

These are the supplies that were included to create our tic-tac-toe game. We only had to provide scissors otherwise.

Oh I just love the way this turned out! It’s adorable! It has a nice platic cover and hanging rope to display as a big collection when not in use, but when you take the cover off you can use the insects to play tic-tac-toe! Bees vs. Ladybugs! How clever! It wasn’t hard to make, either.

The verdict: We love Kiwi Crate! I am consistently impressed with their crafts and how well put-together the supplies are. This month’s projects were so fun! My son and I enjoyed making them, and now he is enjoying playing with them as well. I think Kiwi Crate might be the best $20 I spend all month!

What did you think of this month’s Kiwi Crate?

  1. I know, Randi! Kiwi Crate RULES!

  2. My 7 yr old absolutely LOVES KiwiCrate. I can’t believe how much stuff comes in one box. I love that they include everything needed for the projects and the supplies are of great quality. and I love that on the instruction cards it has levels for “messiness” and “parent involvement” – my son will look at those to help him decide which one he wants to do and when. Its great bc most of the things can be done all by himself, but I love the projects so I’m more than happy to help when he lets me!
    I honestly don’t think I can say enough good things about KiwiCrate, its a great value ( I think I do 3 months at a time) and the activities are wonderful!
    We haven’t done May yet, its been a busy summer but hoping to catch up in the next week or two. He loves tic-tac-toe so I might have to bring this along for the long holiday weekend at the lake.
