I really enjoy crafting. I enjoy sitting down to a project, having something in mind that I want to create, and ending up with a fun decoration for my house, or new apron, or a fun toy for my son. However, I don’t have a whole lot of money to spend on buying tons of craft supplies. I’m not somebody who has a stash of every color of paint, or every shape of hole punch, or an endless supply of fabric. I have a few things here and there. So I don’t really work on crafts all that often. And, if truth be told, I’m kind of lacking in the creativity department. 🙂 It is hard for me to come up with a craft project on my own. I would love to be able to work on crafts with my son more often, but the resources and the ideas are limited in our household.
Kiwi Crate is an awesome monthly subscription to receive a crate filled with materials and inspiration for kid crafting on your door each month! And, happily, they are launching single gift crates that you can purchase, too, without a monthly subscription! These crates include six of our customer favorite crates, such as Pirate Adventure, Robot Rally, Making Music, Colorful Inspiration, Medieval Fun and Wild Safari. Now’s your chance to stock up on crates for any occasion including rainy days, birthday parties, and family fun nights!
My son isn’t 3 yet (the recommended starting age), but with a lot of adult supervision, he loved working on his Farmer’s Market crate. He absolutely loved coloring his apron! And he enjoyed stuffing his fruit with cotton balls! Plus, he loves playing with the end result, too! We designed his own apron (which he loves to wear to help me bake!) and he enjoys playing with his little fruits. The crate even included a pair of child scissors to use! I loved that everything I needed to complete this craft project was included right in the box. And I didn’t have to come up with the idea myself! If you have a little crafter in your house, Kiwi Crate is the perfect solution!
Each crate is available for $19.95 and can be purchased in their Celebration Shop.

I subscribe to these crates for my son and he loves them and the materials are very high quality and fun to work with.

I love this idea. I love doing crafts, and I have just recently started doing them with my daughter who is 14 months.
