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 theme is “solar system”! My son loves studying outer space, and this month’s theme has led us into so many great conversations about what’s out there!

Kiwi Crate included two projects this month. Everything was included that we needed this month.

Here’s a peek at the instructions. They are always complete and easy to follow.

Our first project was building a launcher game. The first step was to build a launcher, and usual, I apologize for the picture with our much-loved crafting table. This is the launcher! It’s basically a rod within a tube, connected with elastic.

This is the completed game. We launch these little pompoms and try to hit the paper discs to score. Fun! I will say the pompoms are really light and kind of fly wherever they want to go!

The second project was to create a solar system mobile. The first step was to watercolor all these planets and extra-terrestrial objects on two sticker sheets. I love the way my son painted all the planets! The instructions provided tips for different watercolor techniques.

The second step was to build the “sun,” which is a paper lantern with a keychain light inside. On this step, I had to help my son. The light did not want to fit into the lantern at all.

The third step was to select our favorite eight planets and stick them onto strings. We also stuck the extra objects on a few of the strings to make it more interesting.

This is our completed mobile! I have no idea why it tilts, by the way. After getting all our strings constructed, we tied them through the top, and voila! The solar system!

Here it is all lit up! Cool!

Verdict: Kiwi Crate is awesome! Their projects are really great! The projects can usually be completed in about an hour, and it’s honestly one of our funnest hours all month. This month’s solar system mobile project was a little different because we had to wait for the paint to dry, but otherwise the time frame was similar. I would say at $20 per month, it’s an incredible value!
