Kiwi Crate Review

I had the opportunity to review Kiwi Crate last year. I was so impressed with the space exploration kit we received and I can remember thinking to myself they must have some pretty awesome holiday-themed crates. When the opportunity to review a Valentine’s Day Kiwi Crate I couldn’t wait to see what the crate had in store for me and my oldest son.

When the Valentine’s Day Kiwi Crate arrived, both my son Matthew and I were equally excited to see what kind of project was in the box. When I opened it I was happy to see that it included everything we would need to create fun little Valentine’s Day cards. The crate included pre-folded, pre-cut blank cards, a glue stick, cute little decorations and embellishments and a full set of markers. The instructions were simple and easy to follow for my 4-year-old. I only had to help him when it came to gluing some of the pieces to the card paper. Matthew loved being able to do so much of the project on his own. And now that he can write his name he’s excited to make cards this year for all his little friends as school. Both Matthew and I enjoyed our time together with this project and I look forward to more crate projects in the future.

Kiwi Crate review

Launched by three parents back in 2011, the idea behind Kiwi Crate is that parents would get the opportunity to spend quality time with their children on fun projects, without worrying about shopping for various supplies or pre-planning projects. When you subscribe to Kiwi Crate you’ll receive a crate each month with tools and materials needed for various projects that range from simple art projects to science experiments. You can order a monthly or annual subscription and now you can even order Kiwi Crates for your next party! One ordering option that fits my life right now is the “no fight” addition that you can order for only $7.95 with each crate – it includes additional materials so that siblings can get in on the act too.

If you have a child or grandchild between the ages of 3 and 7, you can’t go wrong with giving the gift of Kiwi Crate. You can learn more about Kiwi Crate on their website, their blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter.
