I had peeked online, so I knew the theme was Shadow and Light 2.  The first Shadow and Light had come out before we were subscribers, but I had bought Ella the original Shadow and Light as a single box and she loved it.  That was about 2 years ago, so we were excited to see what this one included.

The Materials: This box was packed full.  I am really liking the new format of the instructions.  They are larger and have more explanation and ideas to further the projects.

The Projects: 

Flashlight Fun: The first project involved creating a light box with the flashlight and decorating different colored films with dry erase markers.  Ella had a blast seeing how her shapes looked through the light boxes and seeing how the different colors interacted (a red film with blue marker…)

I really liked that they included dry erase markers.  The mess was easy to clean up, and if she made a mistake it could be quickly erased and redone.

Shadow Puppets: The second project was creating shadow puppets using the pre-cut shapes and colored sticks.  Again, I love that Kiwi Crate included extra papers for making your own shadow puppets.  It’s great that younger kids can use the pre-cut pieces and older kids can expand the project by making their animals.

Like all Kiwi Crates, this came with explore! magazine.  Ella loves the mazes, hidden pictures and comics in these.

Final Thoughts:

We absolutely loved this crate!  It’s awesome to see the difference in Ella’s skills from doing a similar crate two years ago and now.  Ella was able to do most everything herself (she only required a little supervision).  As always, I love that she made crafts that she is still using long after the actual craft is done – the shadow puppets are great for keeping her busy after she goes to bed!
