Last week Little Lady got a package, her first Kiwi Crate!
I talked about Kiwi Crate a couple of weeks ago, you can read all about it and why I decided to sign up for this monthly craft crate.
We waited for Baby Girl to go down for a nap then tore into it. Each month the crate has a different theme, this month ours was Caring for Earth. It comes with little easy to read visual instruction books for a couple of crafts included.
It also has suggestions for other crafts we can do using materials around the house. In this box it was all about reusing and recycling. Even the box is engaging, you really get a lot of activity out of one crate.
We started out by making our own paper. Everything needed was included and we got right to work. The instruction booklet also has talking points about the craft. We both learned a little something about paper; where it comes from, and why it’s so important to recycle.
The other craft included was a reusable bag that Little Lady could decorate. The kit included modeling clay, ink, and leaves to make a stamp. She had a blast with this. While making it we talked about the leaves and other materials we could find in our yard to make more stamps.
A couple of days later we tried out one of the extra projects in the booklet. It showed us how to make a mailbox from a cereal box. We used a smaller box we found in our recycling pile and decorated it. Fun paper, washi tape, pipe cleaners…she raided her craft stash for this one.
We did all the activities over the course of a week, and still have supplies and ideas to do more! I am happy that I took the leap and tried this, it’s a great way to bond with my daughter. She loves hands on crafts and so do I.
I signed up for the monthly program, but you have the option to buy a single crate as well. There are also gift subscriptions! You can view all their options at Kiwi Crate. I hope you’ll take a look.
