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 “physics carnival”!
Kiwi Crate included four projects this month, all based on the theme.
Here’s a peek at the instructions. They are always complete and easy to follow. Everything was included that we needed this month.
Our first project was to decorate the backdrop for the carnival.
My son made two stick stamps, each with a design on both ends.
He also made a rolling wheel stamp.
He rolled the stamp across the tent to make circus art.
It turned out pretty cool looking!
His next project was to make a balancing acrobat. The first step was to decorate the costumes.
He chose his favorite costumes and put them on the male and female acrobats on either side of this disc.
Then he wedged the disc into this wooden frame and added eraser weights to either end.
He can balance the acrobat on one finger. We are working on being able to spin it, but we’re not quite there yet.
His next project was making “tumblers.” He started by decorating this strip.
He curved the strip into itself and added one side to it. Then he put this metal ball inside.
He then added the other side and secured everything in place with stickers.
This is his completed tumbler. It rolls down the ramp all by itself.
Like so! This was actually my favorite thing he made this month.
His final project was building a catapult. He started by securing this tube under the ramp with stickers.
He then added supports to the base.
Then he added the ramp to the base.
He then added a launcher to the end of the ramp.
This is his completed catapult! So fun!
Here it is in action! Haha!
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 most fun hours all month. This month the projects were very easy to put together and fun to play with! I would say at $20 per month, it’s an incredible value!
