*I was sent a Kiwi Crate to review, and was compensated for this review. All thoughts are my own however and I am not paid to write a positive review.*
This Kiwi Crate could not have come at a better time. In the middle of morning sickness and fatigue, crafts or any fun activieis is the last thing on my list to be doing now. In fact the box sat on my dresser for at least a week before I summoned the energy to let my children open it.
I originally thought this would be just for my 6 and 4 year old girls, but after opening it up we gave one activity to the boys (this was done reluctantly, as they really wanted to do both but we shared!).
Obviously Olivia was having a crazy hair day! They were pretty excited to actually open the box up and see two craft kits in it! Included in the box was a city skyscraper to color and build, and a car to build with road tape to play with. I was impressed with how nicely everything was packaged, and all the little extras that the children appreciated. Cardstock actives to cut out, and a nice pair of children’s scissors was included, even though you don’t need them for the actual craft kits.
The instructions given are very easy to follow, and even if a child can’t read there are clear pictures given. None of the children had trouble following the instructions. Even though I think the boys were slightly older then the boxes are intended for (10 and 8), they loved putting together the car. A cardboard car shape that you put stickers on, with wooden wheels that roll.
So what exactly is Kiwi Crate? In case it’s not obvious yet, it’s craft sets that are mailed each month to your house! Every month it will be a different set of crafts that are included. I think the crafts are really good for the 4-7 age range, but there are exceptions, like the car above. Skill wise it wasn’t for a 10 year old, he just thought it would be fun to put a car together.
These kits are perfect for the busy mom who does not have time to constantly be coming up with new crafts for the children to do. While I can’t fit a monthly subscription into my budget right now, I think this is a perfect gift idea for grandparents to give! And I know there are a lot of families who set the money aside, to give their child something fun and educational to look forward to each month.
The subscription prices are from $16.95-$19.95 (free shipping), depending on how many months you sign up for. Or you can try just one month, and see what you think!
