If you’ve seen our posts about Birchbox for beauty junkies, Foodzie tasting box for gourmands, and most recently, the Umba box for all kinds of mamas, you’ll recognize that monthly subscriptions are all the rage. And now, there’s one meant just for our kids, that you’re going to love as much as they do. Welcome to the world, Kiwi Crate!
Kiwi Crate, just launched this week, is a wonderful new subscription service for kids, created by parents. Each month, you’ll receive at least two inspired activities and materials designed to get them to create and explore. Just in time for winter.
This is perfect for those parents with the best intentions (ahem) who often can’t find the time to assemble thought-out creative projects.
I checked out a box themed around gardening and it included flower pot decorating supplies, and a more science-based project around growing seeds. I love how it was meant to last longer than the usual 15 minute rush of new toy–especially if your seed-growing is as slow going as ours often are.
If the $19.95 a month is a little much for you year round, they also offer 3 and 6 month subscriptions. I can’t help but think what a great idea this would be for someone with nieces/nephews on the other side of the country or for out of state grandparents who are looking for something special to send to the kids. Or hey–send it to the grandparents so that the kids always have something creative to do when they come to visit.
Not only will Kiwi Crate keep your kids flexing their creative muscles and busy for a nice chunk of time but honestly, who doesn’t love getting a mystery package in the mail? –Stephanie M
