Today I’m happy to introduce you all to Kiwi Crate, a fantastic company that delivers monthly packages filled with crafts, activities, and science experiments for kids.
If you’re like me (or my kids), then you love getting a package in the mail. It’s so exciting to see your little green Kiwi Crate on your doorstep, and your kids will love that it’s even addressed to them by name.
I was sent a preview of the December Antarctic crate to review with my kids. Now my son recently turned 3 and my daughter turns 2 next month. These crates are geared towards kids ages 3 – 7. What’s great was that both of my kids had fun with the crate, even though they are on the younger side, but older kids will also enjoy the crafts and activities, and will be able to do more by themselves and get more out of it.
The first project we did were these aurora watercolor postcards. Basically, you use oil pastels to color streaks across the sky. Then you paint over the whole postcard with watercolors. Each project comes with a little booklet with instructions, ideas, and learning opportunities.
Another suggested activity that ended out being great for Lyla who is almost 2 were these postcards. You can draw shapes onto one of the blank postcards with Elmer’s glue. Then let it dry, and let your little kids paint over the whole postcard, revealing your design. I also wiped over the glue with a damp paper towel after Lyla was done to make the white more pronounced.
The next activity we did was penguin bowling. My kids definitely needed a little help setting this up, but we had a lot of fun playing with it together. Benjamin helped me decorate the penguins with stickers and markers. He loves penguins and thought it was hilarious to knock them over with the balls. The crate comes with a scorecard with lots of ideas for setting up the penguins. However, my kids just wanted to knock them over and did not have the patience for the scorecards.
We also used the fish ice cube tray to freeze some blue Gatorade. The kids really got a kick out of this.
Kiwi Crate also make a wonderful gift for a little one in your life, or for a family as a whole. I know I enjoyed doing the crafts and activities with my kids.
