Koala Crate Garden 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.

Koala Crate Garden First Look

For the first time in a very long time, I hadn’t peeked in my account to see what this month’s theme was.  I was excited when I saw it was Gardening.  Both girls love to play “gardening” in our yard, so I knew this would be a hit.

Koala Crate Garden – imagine! magazine

Like every Koala Crate, this one came with an explore! magazine.  The girls really love these – they include comics, puzzles and hidden object pictures.

The Projects:

Funny Grass Head:

This was probably Ava’s favorite project in the box and the one she was able to do mostly by herself.

Koala Crate Garden – Funny Grass Head Materials

Funny Grass Head involved decorating the cups with face stickers (there were more than enough in the box), adding the soil discs to the cups, adding water and seed.  We just did this on Saturday, so there’s no grass growing yet, but the girls have been checking every morning.

The second project was Growing Plant.  There were parts of this that Ava loved, and some parts she struggled with.

Included were all of the pieces to build a tree, small tissue paper squares to make bugs (or maybe flowers), and glue.  Ava loved popping the tree pieces out of the cardboard, but she had a little difficulty putting them together.

She did really enjoy squishing the tissue paper and gluing it on the tree though.  Overall, I think her tree came out adorable.

Garden Book:

Koala Crate – Garden Book

The final activity was not a craft, but a cute book about growing plants.  I love that they included this book in this month’s crate, because it explained how the animals had to keep checking back day after day to see if their plants had started growing yet.  Since one of the projects included seeds, I really like that there’s a book that explains having to wait for them to grow.

 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 (we probably spent an hour on the whole crate), every craft created an item that they can use again and again which is what I love so much about this box.
