Kiwi Crate August Fun with Flight and Future Spoilers

My son L gets so excited when he sees that the green Kiwi Crate box has arrived.  This month’s theme is Fun with Flight.  L is all about planes, so this box is right up his ally.

One of the things that makes this company so great, is the customer service.  Kiwi Crate has always gone above and beyond for me.  They return phone calls, help you with anything you need and will correct any problem you encounter with their company.  You can pause or cancel you subscription from the website.
This month, they added a special bonus, Explore Magazine.

There are cartoons and fun activities for you child to do in the magazine.  Kiwi Crate note that this magazine will appear in every Kiwi Crate subscription, every month.  Every month’s magazine will fit with that month’s theme to the box.

My Rad Rockets

One of the main crafts in this month’s kit is “My Rad Rockets”.  The box included everything to make 2 rockets.  The rockets are make with a rubber band system, so your child can actually launch them.  There is a tall chart that comes with the kit, so you child can measure how high the rocket flies.  You can also use the chart as a growth chart.  This craft comes with markers, so your child can use them long after the rockets are complete.

The Whole Box

Final Thought:   I think this is my favorite Kiwi Crate.  This crate was packed with stuff.  In all, there were materials to make 2 rockets, 2 kites, and 3 other flying objects.  There was also a magazine valued at $4.95.  My son loves Kiwi Crate.  It has been such fun, watching him grow and be able to do most everything in the craft himself.  (L is 4 years old).  If you want to know what is going to be in the next 3 months of Kiwi Crate, keep reading below for descriptions and pictures.  To sign up for Kiwi Crate and save $10.00 on your first box, click HERE.  What do you think about this month’s crate?
