kiwi-crate-feb-theme

This month’s theme is “Race Day”! This is well timed; my eight-year-old is building his car for the Cub Scout’s Pinewood Derby right now.

kiwi-crate-feb-explore

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.

kiwi-crate-feb-projects

This month’s projects are “Airbrush Art” and “Race Car.” Kiwi Crate has been changing up their printed materials a bit lately, but I’m glad to see they still have the indicators (lower right) for how much grownup involvement will be required.

kiwi-crate-feb-instructions

Here’s a peek at the instructions. They are usually pretty straightforward and easy to follow.

kiwi-crate-feb-supplies

These are the supplies that were provided. Everything was included that we needed for both projects.

kiwi-crate-feb-airbrush

This month was unusual in that both projects were actually part of the same project, building race cars. The first project, Airbrush Art, was to learn how to use the supplies to airbrush, and then to airbrush the cars. This was my son’s practice paper as he learned how to airbrush.

kiwi-crate-feb-cars

Here are my son’s completed cars! They turned out really awesome! Hopefully you can see the airbrushed flames on the hoods. They are balloon powered – how clever!

Verdict: This was a super fun month of Kiwi Crate! My son and I spent some quality time together, we learned a little something, and we made some awesome race cars! Kiwi Crate is one of my favorite subscription boxes for kids, and I still think it’s about the best $20 you can spend on your child every month!
