Kiwi Crate Free Trial Box Review

Kiwi Crate is a monthly craft, activity and learning subscription box for kids. They’re currently offering a free trial box that let’s you see the type of projects you can expect with a monthly subscription, so I decided to sign up and review it!

Kiwi Crate Free Trial Box Review! First Look

FYI, this box is free, but it does cost $3.95 shipping. It’s also not the same size as a full Kiwi Crate subscription, but it’s a full project and will give you an opportunity to try out Kiwi Crate!

First up is the activity for the box – making a starlight lantern. They’ve included everything you need to complete the project, including an LED candle!

Verdict: I think Kiwi Crate is a wonderful subscription box for kids. I reviewed one a while ago and then sent it to my cousin, and her mom let me know that it provided hours of activities and fun. I also really like how they involve different science concepts with each box, and I think it’s great that Kiwi Crates are all gender-neutral!

After getting this free trial box, I can’t wait to give it to my cousin, and I’ll keep my subscription going so I can continue to send her new projects each month!

Have you tried the Kiwi Crate free trial box offer? What did you think of the box?
