My kids have been getting a kiwi crate for about 6 months now, and I though I would share our thoughts on this subscription service! I chose this one for the girls because to be honest, I’m not crafty, like at all really. But my girls LOVE doing crafty things and I thought this may be a way for them to have new and fun things to make, without me wasting my life on yet another Pinterest FAIL!
The girls get so excited when that little green box arrives in the mail and the begging to open it is never ending!
There are usually two activities in each box. You can choose a box for just one child, or add siblings. Which we did, and they send you age appropriate crafts. Most require very little parent help, which was a selling point for me. With two toddlers running around, it’s nice to let the girls go in the school room and craft away, and I just peek in to make sure they are doing okay.
This month was a homemade lemonade stand and it was SO cute! Came with all the supplies they needed! A cute chalk board, a cash register, and play money was included too!
The only thing they needed help with was folding the box that held the calculator… although I think with a little more patience they could have done that themselves too.
I did pull out my laminating machine and laminate the dollar bills so they would last longer in this house 🙂 If your kids are gentle players, then that step isn’t necessary 😉
All in all, the crafting took about 45 minutes, and has provided HOURS of play afterward! I call that #winning
In case you didn’t guess it already, this is definitely a LOVE it item for us!
