This isn't a sponsored post. It's just what we've been doing a lot of lately. MiMi got the boys a subscription to Kiwi Crate for Christmas, and they have loved it.
Every month it comes with two special crafts (and enough supplies for two boys - but it easily accommodates three), complete with everything needed to put together the craft (even if that means scissors)! It also gives you other ideas of fun games to play with the kids. Honestly, we haven't gotten that far yet, but the boys (especially Carter) are loving the crafts.
A couple of months ago, they built a snowman, and then played Snowman Bowling Ball.
This week, Carter built his own mini golf course.
And, yesterday, everyone helped make a growth chart.
Another thing I love about it is that each craft comes with this little card. On it you can gauge how much of a mess it will make and what level of supervision is needed - perfect for determining when it the best time to start said craft!
All in all, my boys like to be busy, and crafting is a big change of pace for them (it's not something I do a lot of on my own). This provides a way for them to be a bit creative without a ton of preparation and mess. It's my kind of activity! Plus who doesn't like getting things in the mail?!
I hear there are also monthly subscriptions for baking/cooking. I think we might try one of those next :)
