If you follow us on Twitter @mommytesters then it’s no secret that we are major Kiwi Crate fans.
If by some horrible misalignment of the stars you’ve never heard of Kiwi Crate, they send out monthly themed boxes of crafts for kids ages 3-7.
A while back I ordered a 3 month subscription to Kiwi Crate for Kayla because she is absolutely obsessed with craft projects. It’s her favorite activity at school and ever since she was old enough to string a couple of words together she would say “Do art”- it was all she wanted to do. Sadly, she happens to be the daughter of a less than crafty mother.
You can tell from the picture below that Kayla has learned to recognize that green box and is over the top excited when it shows up each month.
I love the bonding, learning and creative development that doing these types of projects offer. However, the thought of spending what little free time I have at a craft store tracking down obscure materials is downright unappealing and knowing me I’d inevitably forget some crucial component…
That’s where Kiwi Crate comes in. Each crate contains all the materials you would need to complete the projects as well as very detailed and easy to understand instructions. At about $20 a month including shipping I personally feel like I’m getting a deal for the lack of hassle and the amount of entertainment the crates provide for Kayla.
A few weeks ago we showed you a pictures only preview of the firefly project from the June “busy with bugs” crate. You can see how much joy Kayla got out of that project here: Kiwi Crate June box
Kiwi Crate recently opened their Celebration Shop which sells individual projects to be used during birthday parties or for party favors. They also sell gift crates as a nice option to give when you’re on birthday party number 7 of the month and you’re running out of original ideas.
When our friends at Kiwi Crate offered to send us the Fairy Fun Gift Crate I was pretty excited because I knew it would be right up Kayla’s alley. So what was in the box?
