Play: [Guest Post] Kiwi Crate review
I am not a creative person.
Fun or fabulous ideas don’t usually just pop into my head. Most of my good ideas have been begged,
borrowed, stolen or most likely pinned from someone else. And since I’m not very creative, being crafty
doesn’t come easily. Glue sticks, googly
eyes and glitter just aren’t my favorite things. However, my children love all things Crayola,
and since I am trying to be a good mommy, I want to encourage their God-given creativity,
not stifle it.

introduced me to Kiwi Crate, I was excited. For
non-crafty mothers like me, Kiwi Crate is a genius idea. I encourage you to visit their website. But to sum up, for $19.95 they send you a
green box of fun once a month. Each box is filled with ALL supplies and instructions
necessary for 2 craft projects. I paid a
bit extra for enough supplies for 2 kiddos to complete the projects, but I also
had a $10 off coupon which helped toward the total cost.
These are really cool crafts! Our September box was filled with cloth aprons
to decorate, play money and all the necessary supplies to create a box full of
stuffed fruits and veggies. My children
had fun completing the craft and just as much fun afterwards playing
But I have to share that when planning my own crafts, by the time I herd 3 kiddos (7,4, & 2) to
and through the craft store gathering supplies, go a little bit crazy and then
come home having lost just a tiny bit of my mind and spending more money that I
intended, all desire to encourage creativity is gone. So for me, this is totally worth it. Will I order again? Definitely.
I think this would make a great gift for
children who have oodles of toys. I also
think this is a fabulous grandparent gift idea!
the front porch last month…just a few days ahead of hurricane Sandy. Bless those folks at Kiwi Crate who sent
supplies for making shadow puppets. They
even included nifty little rechargeable flashlights for the kids. I understand that this was probably not intentional
but it provided some very necessary entertainment when our power was out during
received is that they encourage creative play once the craft project has been
completed. Kiwi Crate advertises that
their activities have been tested by children, approved by parents and are
appropriate for ages 3-7.
