Have you heard the term Kiwi Crate thrown around blog land and wondered what that meant? Me too.
Then, Kiwi Crate contacted me and asked if my boys would want to try one out. So, I researched the company and was very impressed. Basically, Kiwi Crate sends out packages full of craft project supplies for children ages 3-7. You get a bundle of materials to create a few projects at a time. You subscribe to it like you would a magazine and a new crate comes every month.
My boys LOVED seeing their names right on the package. They unwrapped it and sorted out it’s contents faster than you can say Kiwi Crate five times! Okay, not really. But they were pretty fast. :)
We got the special holiday Gifts Made by Me package. There are more options to choose from so you can pick one that best suits your child(ren).
Inside the crate, was everything they needed to each make a journal and a couple of cards adorned with their own personal painted prints. No supplies from our stash were needed whatsoever and instructions they could understand were included for each step.
I like that the supplies are high quality. That brayer is no joke. I might have to borrow it for a few of my own projects. :)
You can tell that these projects are created by parents and tested by kids. Both of my boys enjoyed the projects and I am very impressed with how everything turned out.
They even provided some kraft paper to put the paint on, to help contain the mess. We decided to decorate the kraft paper instead and use it to wrap our journals…because we’re rebels like that. :)
And hey…are the grandparents asking to know what to get your kids this holiday season? And do you really not want to add to the mountain of toys in their room already? Tell them to get a Kiwi Crate subscription! You can get one Kiwi Crate for only $20 a month and add on siblings for $8 (so they don’t have to fight over supplies!)
You get enough for the projects in the crate plus maybe a tool or two that you can continue to use after the crate project is done.
It gives them something to do and something to look forward to. What a nice reminder each month that Grandma and Grandpa love you?! But it’s not just for grandparents. Aunts, Uncles, parents…I sincerely think Kiwi Crate is a great gift idea for kids!
Kiwi Crate is not paying me to say this. They simply sent me a crate and asked me to review it.
I liked it so much, and wanted to make it easier for you guys to try it, so I sent an email asking Kiwi Crate to give you guys a discount.
They were gracious enough to agree.
From now until Sunday, December 9, 2012, all of my readers get 25 % off the first crate in a subscription. There is free shipping, so that means your first crate is just $15 for one child or $21 if you get a sibling add on. That’s a little better than their current site -wide promotion!
Simply enter DELIA25 at check out.
FYI: The holiday crates are not eligible for the discount unless you opt to make the holiday crate your first crate.
Hope you have time today to get your craft on! Happy Thursday!
