Doodle Crate Bracelets Review and Coupon Code

I was so thrilled when Kiwi Crate announced that they are offering three new crates including  Doodle Crate (for children age 9-14+).  I gifted the first two boxes I bought to my nieces for Christmas, so this is the first box I got to play with myself.

Even though this subscription is geared for children 9-14+, I wanted to see if Ella and I could conquer these together.  At 5, she is able to do a lot of the Kiwi Crate projects on her own and I miss crafting together.

This box wasn’t as full as some past boxes have been, but I shouldn’t have been worried because they included plenty of supplies to make quite a few bracelets.

Included in the box were 10 skeins of embroidery floss, two looms, 8 wooden tags, 3 glitter gel pens and a small clipboard.  Doodle Crate doesn’t include a magazine like Kiwi Crate and Koala Crate, instead they include a fun extra – there has been a journal, postcards and now the clipboard which has gold polka dots.

This was the first Doodle Crate that I’ve tackled myself and I thought the directions were easy to follow.  I like that there are pictures because I’m a visual person.  There’s also an online video if you learn better that way.

While the project is simple, they broke it down into manageable steps.  Everything needed to complete the projects was included in the box except scissors.

This is Ella’s bracelet so far.  Since she’s only 5, I got the bracelet started for her (she chose the colors) and with some supervision she is able to do this herself.  This is a great first project for her because it really just consists of crossing the correct string to the empty slot.  We just had to check in with her to make sure it wasn’t getting tangled and that she kept the strings tight.

The wooden tags are the center of the bracelet – so you actually  repeat the process twice (once on each side) and then tie the two ends together in the back.

The gel pens included are for decorating the wooden tags.  Of course both girls wanted to use the gel pens first 🙂

We haven’t finished our bracelets yet, but I was so excited to share this project.  I’ll update later with a picture of our completed bracelets.
