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 7-year-old can complete the activity alone. This month I assisted a little but she did most of it.

Kiwi Crate also included this magazine which my daughter loves reading. Typically she isn’t too interested in reading the booklets that come with the subs but again, I have to give it to Kiwi Crate for doing a great job on the magazine.

The magazine has various sections for kids to explore:

  • Read – Steve, the Kiwi, visits an arcade with his friends. They all work together (teamwork!) to win a stuffed gorilla.
  • Draw – drawing pictures with shapes
  • Play – penny arcade, skeeball, pinball
  • Explore – learning about games in & the history of an arcade
  • Make – build your own arcade

First Cira tackled the artwork for the pinball machine. We were having a garage sale that day so she named her machine “Pinball GS” which stands for pinball garage sale.

Kiwi Crate sends this cool crayon for the artwork. The colors stack on top of one another – great for travel! 

Next Cira assembled the pinball board base and attached the frame. I helped her a little here in order to align all the pieces.

Then Cira assembled the launcher and finished the board. I didn’t need to help her with this part at all.

Finally, Cira added the pegs, spinners and rubber bands to the board to create the fun part. Here is the finished activity.

Here is the finished product in action. We played against each other a couple times but she is still playing by herself most days.

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 $19.95! 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.
