Kiwi Crates

The kids got Kiwi Crate subscriptions for Christmas.  I wasn’t sure if they were going to be worth the price, but so far I have been happy with the product.

Our youngest, who is almost 6, got the six month subscription to the Kiwi Crate.

We got the first box just before Christmas and received the second box this week. In each box there are two activities.  This past box contained a chef’s hat and apron to be decorated with fabric crayons and a foam “cake” that the kids could decorate with clay icing.

The cake activity was the biggest hit and the smallest spent over an hour decorating her cake.

I really like that the kits are structured,  but leave room for the kids to be creative. The activities are easy enough for kids to do unassisted, or with just a little assistance, but are still complex enough to hold their attention.

The Tinker Crate and Doodle Crate have also been well received.

In the first Tinker crate my son received a motor kit.  It was a good kit and provided just the right amount of frustration and tinkering on his part to get it going.

The Doodle crate was perfect for my middle kid who loves to craft.  We haven’t received our second box yet, but after decorating pencil cases using a resist technique she is anxiously awaiting the next project.
