Crafter's Crate ships USPS. There is a pink elephant on top each box. Crafter's Crate chose an elephant because elephants live in herds led by females. Crafter's Crate wants every girl to grow up to be great mothers, leaders, business women and citizens.
Everything was wrapped in tissue paper and tied with a pink ribbon
There were information cards to both mother's and princesses. The mother's card explains that princesses can be described as fun, independent, intelligent, witty and adventurous. Crafter's Crate encourages girls to grow up to be great mothers, leaders, business women and citizens.
All the crafts cam in bags with all the supplies and directions.
The first craft was write a word on the canvas paper that best describes their favorite princess. Then you paint over the word with water colors and the word will appear. Crafter's Crate included a wooden stand to display the artwork.
Every princess needs a wand. Everything was included to make a pretty wand with ribbons.
The tiara was my favorite craft. A princess isn't complete without a crown, Girls can decorate and personalize it, and make it their own.
Everything was included to make each craft. There was even a card with two pieces of chocolate.
The finished pieces turned out great. Since I have two little boys, I got to play princess and make the crafts. I added hot glue to the wand to help keep it together better. The painting didn't turn out to hot, but I think I added too much paint.
Final Thought: Crafter's Crate is a really cute kit for girls. I like Crafter's Crate included a note to mom about the theme of the kits. The crafts were age appropriate and fun to complete. If you want to subscribe to Crafter's Crate, use the code SUBBOXM to save $10.00 on your subscription.
