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!

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, and imaginative play.
This month’s theme is “Lemonade Stand”! Mmm, some good cold lemonade would hit the spot right about now.
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 the box!
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 a cash register and a shop sign! 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 materials that were included to make our cash register. No additional supplies were required from home.
This is our completed cash register! We love it! First of all, how cool is it that Kiwi Crate included a REAL calculator? And the drawer fits and works nicely. Plus they included loads of play money and a credit card from Bank of Kiwi! Too cute!
These are the supplies that were included to make the shop sign. Again, nothing from home was required.
This is our completed shop sign! The chalkboard itself was kind of already done, but the crafting part came in weaving together the felt eraser. It came out pretty nice, and my son remarked that it works better than the ones they use at school. Plus it looks like a lemon! I hope you can all read that my son wrote “lemonade 25 c – if you are my friend free.” He is the sweetest child!
The verdict: We love Kiwi Crate! This month, I have to say that the thing I’m most impressed with is that we could totally use these items in a real lemonade stand, and it has inspired my son to do so. We have a little organic farm CSA down the street, and all the neighbors come to pick up their veggies on Wednesday. We’re headed down to talk to the farmer tomorrow to see if we could set up shop there!
