Kiwi Crate sends a well-designed instructional booklet each month. The instructions are easy to follow and what is needed for each section of the activity is clear. Most of the time, my seven year old can complete the activity alone. This month there was some fancy folding and the instructions required some double and triple reading to get it right, so I had to help.

Kiwi Crate also includes a magazine that is focused on the subject of the month. This month it was “fun with flight.” Cira enjoys reading this Kiwi Crate magazine- they’ve done a great job at making it both interesting and fun.

The magazine then has various sections for kids to explore:

  • Read – Steve, the Kiwi, builds a space station with his friends
  • Try This – build a helicopter
  • Explore – how rockets fly
  • Make – a straw flyer
  • Eat – hot air balloon muffins!

First Cira built the rocket launcher. Easy-peasy – no help needed!

Then she made the rockets. Folding the rocket finds required a little assistance from mom.

Voila! Time for blast off! When she jumped on the rocket launcher the rockets flew super high. Cira and her friends played with it for a while.

This month there was a second craft. We made a kite and tried to fly it.

Kites are tricky and since there wasn’t a lot of wind the day we flew it, the results were just so-so. Plus, the kite is small so there isn’t much surface for the wind to catch.

Verdict: Kiwi Crate is really a great subscription! The instructions are fabulous and there is so much to learn from building the activity and the booklet that is included. This month we talked a lot about trajectory. My 7-year-old is able to complete most of the activities by herself and it took about one hour. Plus, she’s enjoyed the magazine Kiwi Crate included and she picked out additional activities/crafts she wants to make in the future.

I can’t believe what you get in this sub for $20! The magazine, the activity and then all the activities and information from the Kiwi Crate website which is fabulous. Plus, Kiwi Crate does a great job with their communication. I knew when the box was on its way and then received a follow-up email asking for feedback. I think this is a top notch subscription for kids.

What do you think of Kiwi Crate?

  1. Thanks for the review! Just subbed to this for my daughter and niece. They’re a little younger (6) so they may need more guidance, but I think it will be just as fun.

    • Thank you Cookie! I think your daughter and niece will really enjoy this sub.
