What if I told you there existed a magic package that would bring peace and collaboration amongst siblings?
What if I told you that there existed a magic package that could make crafting with children enjoyable for those of us who dread it?
What if I told you there existed a magic package that, for one price, included everything you needed and more to complete fanciful projects your children would enjoy?
What if I told you there really was such a magic package, and that it would show up in your mailbox once a month, bringing smiles to children’s faces and tears of joy to weary mothers everywhere?
It exists, my friends. Behold the Kiwi Crate:
I snagged my first Kiwi Crate on a whim through a deal on a flash sale site. I wanted to try it, but wasn’t sure if it would be worth the monthly subscription fee for us. You see, I like the idea of crafting, but it never really turns out like I think it will. I think I have everything I need, but we get started and realize we’re missing something crucial. Glitter is spilled. The glue is dried out. If it’s challenging enough for Elena, Eli gets frustrated. If it’s easy enough for Eli, Elena gets bored. We need 3 pipe cleaners and now I’m stuck with 400. Please tell me this sounds like craft time at your house.
Our first Kiwi Crate arrived and it was as if the crafting gods had smiled upon us. The box was beautifully packaged. Everything we needed, and I mean everything- down to the tiny scissors, was included. The quality of the materials were amazing. And then this happened: both of my children sat down together, and with minimal help from me, spent the next 2 hours working side by side happily. They made the suggested projects, played with them, and then worked on projects of their own design. We were all hooked.
Each month’s Crate comes with a specific theme. So far we’ve had Wind, Gardening, and Medieval Fun. Each crate comes with materials and instructions for a few projects related to the theme. Once those projects are done, you’ll often have enough materials left over to do more – either ideas your kids come up with on their own or additional projects you can find on the Kiwi Crate blog.
I just can’t get over how much we love this product. It consistently keeps both kids engaged for hours. The projects they make, such as this catapult in our latest box, are sturdy and end up getting played with over and over again. We have enough materials to enjoy crafting, but not so many that I’m left with a pile of stuff just taking up space.
The instructions are clear and easy to follow – I especially love how each one comes with a rating system so that you know what you’re getting into. Best of all, it’s affordable, especially when you consider the time and effort you spend coming up with craft ideas for your kids and driving around town procuring the materials.
Whether it’s the dog days of summer or the long, dreary days of winter, I guarantee a Kiwi Crate delivery will put a smile on everyone’s face.
