I have an amazing, new kid craft product to review for you today.
The company is called Kiwi Crate. Every month you can sign up to receive a pretty, green crate filled with all the materials and inspiration for hands-on projects. The crates are designed around fun themes including arts & crafts, science activities, imaginative play and more! They even make sets for birthday celebrations.
We received the Busy With Bugs crate and quickly got to work. Each box comes with the supplies for two creations. Busy With Bugs includes building a firefly and bug sponge painting.
We bought a subscription for C to help eat away some of those summer vacation days and he loves it! We've only just begun our subscription yet he's so excited when a new box arrives each month. There are varying levels of difficulty, so some crafts he can complete almost on his own but some need more parent assistance. The directions booklets for the bug crafts were so clear, C could complete them all on his own.
I love that each crate comes with all the necessary supplies to complete your projects. This is wonderful for a parent like me who does not have the time to sit down, think of a project, collect the necessary supplies and try to supervise a craft while a rowdy two year old is constantly looking for trouble. At $19.95 per month I’m sure it’s much less expensive than if I were to purchase all of the supplies separately for every new project I came up with. I mean seriously, they even included a pair of kid scissors!
Shhh, don't tell but they even included enough stickers and googly eyes in this craft so that I only had to come up with a few supplies in order for the middle guy to craft along. I'm sure this is not the case most times, but they do offer the opportunity to purchase a second craft for additional siblings.
You might not be able to tell from the photo, but C was very proud of his creation. The firefly craft comes with a glow stick and we can't wait to try it out in a dark room.
Here's his finished version
and here's the one S made from the leftovers. We're saving the bug painting craft for our next rainy day but we've already decided we are big fans of Kiwi Crate. We can't wait for the next one to come so we can see what fun is in store.
