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 “A Day at the Lake”! What great timing! We just had an amazing day at the lake a couple of weeks ago, and the kids are still talking about how fun it was.
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 fish lantern and paddle boats! 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!
Usually the supplies for each project are kind of separated in the box, but this month everything was sort of jumbled together, so I just took a picture of all of the supplies for both projects together. Everything was included that we needed for both projects.
This is my son’s completed fish lantern. So pretty!
Here’s the lantern lit up. It looks amazing! This project was a little time-consuming and a little messy, but it was totally worth it! I think we will bring this as a present for Grandma and Grandpa when we go see them next week!
Here are our completed paddle boats – I made the one on the left and my son made the one on the right. I hope you can read that his sail says, “The Happy Ship!” He is so sweet. These turned out cute, but more importantly, they work! We had a blast with these at bath time last night! We raced them until we broke the rubber band on The Happy Ship.
The verdict: I think this was actually our favorite Kiwi Crate so far! We love Kiwi Crate! Making the crafts is always fun for my son and I, but this month was really extra special because both crafts are also great to keep.
