Koala Crate Feelings Review and Coupon Code

I was so thrilled when Kiwi Crate announced that they are offering three new crates including  Koala Crate (for children age 2-4).  Koala Crate always arrives towards the end of the month.

First Look:

Koala Crate Friendship and Feelings

I had peeked online at the theme before it shipped and I was a little nervous about this one.  I just wasn’t sure how the theme Friendship and Feelings would translate to an activity box for toddlers.

Like all Koala Crate boxes, this one included a copy of imagine! magazine with simple games and cartoons.

Koala Crate Instruction Book

Every Koala Crate also comes with detailed instructions for each project as well as ways to extend the learning.  From the picture on the outside of the booklet, I knew the projects included would be fun!

Feelings Puppets:

The first project we tackled were the Feelings Puppets.  These were very easy – the girls basically had to stick Velcro to the back of felt pieces.  Once they were done they used the Feelings Chart to create different faces.

Ella chose to make her puppet “silly”

and Ava chose “surprised”.  Since all of the pieces are on Velcro, faces can be made again and again.

Funny Face Game:

The second activity was Funny Face Game.  Basically, you use the puppet pieces created in the first activity and a spinner.  Whatever face part you land on you place on your puppet.  This also included a large felt envelope to hold the puppet faces and all their pieces.

We played the game a few times, but the girls really just like making their own faces and copying what’s on the poster.  I really appreciate that they included a container for all of the little pieces.

Friendship Bracelets:

The last project we tackled was the friendship bracelets.  Again, everything was included to complete the projects.

The girls made their own beads and then after they dried overnight, they attached them to the included elastic.  The straws could be used for putting the holes in the beads or cut into pieces and used as spacers on the bracelets.

Ella is 5 and once I showed her how to make the beads she was able to do it all on her own.  Ava is almost 3 and needed me to break off the appropriate size pieces (she made them into balls herself) and she needed some guidance in putting the hole in the center of the bead.  Both girls strung the beads themselves – all I had to do was tie the knots in the elastic.

Final Thoughts:

Koala Crate  is $19.90 per month (less if you prepay for multiple months at a time).  I was VERY impressed with this box.  There are three activities included and while each activity didn’t take that long to create, every craft created an item that they can use again and again which is what I love so much about this box.
