Yummy Crate is a subscription box for kids and tweens ages 6-14 created by kids subscription box company KiwiCo. Each month you'll receive three colorful recipe cards, a specialty cooking tool, hands-on projects, and a Yummy Zine with fun facts about food and some history, which adds an educational aspect to the box. With this STEAM-based approach to cooking, your child will learn basic skills and even a little cooking science in the process!

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions

The fizzy tablets had me intrigued and thinking that this would be a fun one for my daughter!

What's Inside a Yummy Crate?


Everything you need, other than the cooking tools, will arrive packed neatly inside this envelope. Inside, there is a little checklist of what you can find, along with a fun collectible sticker.

Cooking Tools


This month we received a gnocchi board! I was pretty excited about this since it's a kitchen tool we definitely don't have!

Grown-Up Guide


A helpful grown-up guide is included that lets you know all of the items you will need for the three recipes. There is a great ingredient substitution list on the back as well so you can modify it to meet your dietary needs or preferences.

Yummy Zine


Our Yummy Zine always has a great mix of educational information and food-related fun. This month we learned about potatoes and starches!

Experiment: Grow Your Own Sweet Potato Pal


Our experiment this month was to grow our own sweet potato pal. They provided some toothpicks for us to set it up!

Activity: Make Spud Stamps


Our activity is a really fun one! They provided a mess mat, an ink pad, a mini cookie cutter, and a small roll of wrapping paper so that we can make potato stamps and stamp a pattern to make our own wrapping paper. So fun and creative!

The Recipes: Fluffy & Filling


We received three colorful recipe cards that were incredibly easy to read and use. This month since we received recipes for gnocchi (yum!), twice-cooked potatoes (double yum!), and sweet potato cookies, which sounded both intriguing and delicious!


Here is a closer look at our gnocchi recipe. The tools and ingredients were listed in checklist form, and every step was marked so clearly and accompanied by a helpful picture. I think the way they break it down is great for kids.

Sweet Potato Cookies

While I am definitely excited to make the gnocchi, we opted for the sweet potato cookies this time around. The first step was to mash up our canned sweet potatoes which we were able to do using the masher we received in a previous box. Then we measured out and mixed up our ingredients.


Next, we rolled them into a bowl and rolled the cookies around in a cinnamon sugar mixture before setting them on our pan. Then we used a glass to smash them down a bit before baking.

We may have gotten a bit overzealous with our smashing of the dough, but the cookies still turned out great! They were really delicious and similar to a snickerdoodle, but with a bit of a fall flair to them. The kids all loved them and so did I!

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $22.95 + free shipping

I think the overall experience of this box makes it such a great value! We get recipe cards to use over and over again, a new kitchen tool, plus materials for extra activities and experiments.

Key Takeaways

This box is so much fun! I love that there are three recipes and I also love the educational aspect of it with all of the helpful kitchen knowledge. My daughter enjoys it each month and the rest of the family certainly appreciates the final product, too!

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It is possible you might get this crate, but it is not a guarantee. From KiwiCo:

Crates are assigned each month based on availability and your crate history - not all subscribers receive the same theme each month.

I am a homeschooling mom to 4 kids; 1 girl and 3 boys. While I have been reviewing boxes since 2018 and I love the luxury of trying new products, I'm also balancing it out by dabbling in a little bit of homesteading, too. We now have 4 chickens and a rabbit and my sourdough starter is going strong! I love learning about new brands and sharing the great things I find with others in hopes that they find something new to love or to fit their needs!
