I love crafting, and doing it with my 3-year old daughter is often the highlight of my day. But let’s face it, as parents sometimes we just don’t have the time to gather the materials necessary or come up with a unique idea to get those little minds excited and engaged. That’s why I was excited to try this new subscription service called Kiwi Crate.
Each crate is packed with materials and step-by-step instructions to make at least two projects. We had plenty to keep us busy all morning. Our crate had a space exploration theme with a rocket and solar system to assemble and decorate.
They sent enough materials to do several rockets so we’re saving those for fun with friends. What a simple idea yet so fun to put together and play with later! Kiwi Crate lists the crafts as appropriate for ages 3-7 and I’d agree with that. My daughter needed quite a bit of help assembling the actual rocket but she had fun picking out the colored paper and taping on the decorations. I’m sure older children would be capable of doing the entire thing on their own. Either way it was fun to do together.
My only suggestion would be to increase the quality of the tape included. Although the tiny tape dispenser with refills was cute and a great idea in concept, the actual quality of the tape was poor.
That’s a minor complaint compared to the pure fun this box contains. All of the other materials provided were top notch quality and variety!
Nora especially had fun with the paint project! Take a look at a few of the other crates that they show previews of on the Kiwi Crate. I thought I’d share a few here.
