What’s in the box? Every month you’ll receive all the materials and inspiration for projects related to a theme such as music, gardening, dinosaurs or colors. Projects may include arts and crafts, science activities, imaginative play and more. We’ve hand selected and kid tested projects that are open ended and encourage curiosity, exploration and creativity!
What ages is Kiwi Crate for? Ages 3-8 but older children can enjoy it too.
When am I billed? You will be billed for your first crate immediately. After that, you will be billed up to 10 days before your ship date. This would be on or around the 5th of each month.
When does the box ship? The first crate will be shipped within 2 business days and subsequent crates will ship the next month around the middle of the month in the U.S. Crates to Canada will be shipped on or around the 15th of each month
Can I skip? Yes – if you do not want to receive a crate for a period of time, you can pause your subscription for 1, 2 or 3 months. To pause, log into My Account page, click “Manage Subscription” next to the subscription that you’d like to pause and then click Pause. You will not be charged while your subscription is paused. Your subscription will automatically resume after the pause period is complete. Pause by 7:00 PM EST on the 4th of the month to avoid being billed for the next crate.
How do I cancel? You can cancel right from you online account.
Our family loves Kiwi Crate. I can’t wait to get that little green box in the mail.
This month, is the first in the series of the Summer Adventure Series. Click HERE to see last spoilers for July and August Crates.
The back of the information card always has Steve the Kiwi Bird and a friend for your child to color and cut out.
Kiwi Crate included a special bonus for subscribers or for people who bought the Summer Adventure Series. This Travel Journal has cool games and activities for your child to do in the car or whenever.
Explore Magazine included an activity for leaf rubbings. I love leaf rubbings and this will be a fun project to do with L.
The next activity was to make a chair tent. I have tried to do this, but this gives some additional ideas to do it right.
The last activity in the magazine was to do a scavenger hunt. There is a little book to cut out and take with you.

The first project was to make a glowing campfire. This is medium on the messiness scale and medium on the grownup involvement.
Kiwi Crate included everything to make a glowing campfire. There is also a little tea light that flickers.
L had a blast making the campfire. It’s wasn’t too difficult to do.
The finished project included a campfire the flickers and cute little marshmallows. It is one of the cutest projects.
The second project was My Sunprint Backpack. This rated high on the messiness scale and medium on the grownup involvement.
There was a cute little backpack, with paints and stencils.
The first step was to paint the backpack with water.
Then you mix paint with water and use the mixture to paint the backpack.
L put the stencils on the backpack and let it sit in the sun.
The finished projects! This was a really cute month.
Final Thought: This was a really fun month. L had a great time doing the Camping Trip box this month. The campfire turned out super cute and it doubles as a night light. The backpack wasn’t as messy as I thought and the backpack was so fun for L to make. If you want to try Kiwi Crate, click HERE and you can save $10.00. That means you can try Kiwi Crate for $9.95
