If you haven’t entered my giveaway for a three month subscription to Kiwi Crate, there’s still time.
Ella is always thrilled Kiwi Crate sitting at our door and now that they are offering Koala Crate, Ava will be thrilled to see these boxes too! There are times when everyone receives the same box (except new subscribers) and times when different subscribers receive different themes for the month. Kiwi Crate won’t send you a duplicate of a crate that you received in the past.
In November, all Kiwi Crate subscribers received Discovering Dinosaurs.
Every box includes an information card showing the projects that are included in the crate.
And now Kiwi Crates include a copy of explore! magazine with a comic, games and extension activities for the month’s box.
Ella loves explore! magazine. There’s games, a comic and little activities for the kids to do.
For My Dinosaur Fossils, the kids had to add foam stickers in the shape of the bones to the dinosaur illustrations (it was sort of like a puzzle). Ella (5) had no problem with it, but Ava is only 2.5 and needed help getting the stickers in the right spots.
Once that was done, the girls put clay on their dinosaur stickers to create a fossil. They really liked seeing the imprints in the clay and Ella is sort of a perfectionist so she liked that she could redo it until it was exactly how she wanted it to look.
The second activity included was My Dinosaur Dress Up. Materials were included to make dinosaur feet and a mask/visor.
Ella made this project herself but both she and Ava have had fun stomping around the house in the dino gear.
I love that Kiwi Crate directions are written really well for kids. Sometimes I find that craft directions are written for adults to help, but all the directions have pictures. It’s great for Ella learning to follow directions and work independently.
For $19.95 we got two great crafts. I say it every month, but I love that they make things they can play with again and again. It’s nice to make a picture and hang it up on the fridge, but I love that they are making their own toys and I love seeing how their imaginations further their play with the crafts.
