Kiwi Crate Review {Subscription Based Project Boxes For Kids}

Kiwi Crate is a subscription based service that sends crates designed around fun themes and filled with all of the materials and inspiration for hands-on projects. The boxes vary each month but feature two projects that could be anything from an arts & crafts project to a science activity.

I liked that the box was addressed to the boys. Who doesn’t love to get special packages in the mail?

This crate’s theme was “wind power” and contained all of the materials needed to make a wind car and a wind sock. They provide everything, even the scissors so you don’t need to hunt around the house for anything. You can just sit down and spend some quality time with your child.

Step-by-step picture instructions were included. Jacob chose to make the wind sock first. We started by Jacob using the pictures to tell me each item we needed. He was so proud that he could do that part by himself. We then followed the directions and put the wind sock together.

When we were done making the wind sock, Jacob went outside and hung it on the tree.

The project wasn’t over once it was outside blowing in the wind which was probably the best part about the kiwi crate. This craft project turned into a science project where Jacob could look at the wind sock and tell us how windy it was outside and then document his findings.

Lucas made a wind sock, too {though mommy did most of the work for him} and he proudly displayed his wind sock next to his big brother’s.

Overall, I love the idea of the crates. The Kiwi Crate subscription costs $19.95 per month. I think that they would make great gifts for children. They are packaged nicely and lots of fun for the kids. The boys probably didn’t even realize that they were learning while they were coloring and playing!

    We tried them out this month and got a bunch of cardboard with cheap stamps from China. :(

    • What a bummer :( Sorry that the box you got wasn’t that great. I have only received the one from them. What were the two crafts/activities?
