Our Love for Kiwi Crate

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.  

Sometimes I wash their hands, promise.

Carter is the one who typically sticks it out until the end while the other two have gone their own ways.
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 :)


  1. Love seeing your boys do the same crafts our house is doing! However, we did not get the mini-golf and growth chart boxes - we got a soccer field and basketball hoop for our sports box. Hmmm...

  2. Oh... and in regard to the cooking/baking boxes, we tried out KidStir for a few months. We weren't keeping up with those as much so I put a hold on them until we caught up but it was a cute subscription!

  3. I'm so intrigued by this for future years. I'm not crafty AT ALL so to have a craft project delivered right to my front door... sounds amazing!
