January 2015 Koala Crate + Coupon

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links

070

Koala Crate is a super cute craft subscription box for 3-4 year olds.  For $19.95/month, your child gets 2-3 activities and a little magazine.  Highlights partnered with Kiwi Crate to create imagine! magazine.  imagine! magazine is filed with activities, games, and stories.  My “almost” 3-year-old gets Koala Crate and he loves completing the projects.
002

Koala Crate ships at the end of the month and by USPS.

003

First Look

034

The theme for January is “Music”.

036

This is an example of one of the little stories/poems.  After you read the story, there are questions to ask your child.

035

One of my favorite articles in imagine! is “That’s Silly”.  Your child looks at the pages and points out all the silly things on the page.

040

There is also an instruction booklet.  Koala Crate includes full color instructions for every product.

043

This is a look at the brochure.

042

Koala Crate lets you know how messy each craft is and how much parental involvement is needed.

044

The first activity is a dancing silk.  This ranked high on the messiness scale and medium on the parental involvement.  Your child takes the Kool Aid, mixes it with water and then you soak the silk scarf.

039

Koala Crate includes a silk scarf, Kool Aid, and a wooden ring.

002

T had a great time mixing the Kool Aid.

004

He put the scarf in, but he was quite concerned about it.  Once we let it sit for a few minutes, I wrung out the liquid and let it dry.

075

The dry scarf was attached to the wooden ring.  Now T can use it to dance to music.  The scarf dried after T was in bed, so he hasn’t played with it yet.

045

The second project was a “singing trumpet”.  Using tissue paper, a rubber band, and stickers, your child makes a trumpet.

033

Koala Crate includes everything you need.

006

T had a great time adding the stickers to the tube.

007

Peeling off the stickers was a great way to practice fine motor skills.

008

I loved watching my little baby complete the project.

010

I didn’t get pictures of all the steps, but T added tissue paper to the end to the tube, added a rubber band and then I poked holes in the end of the tube.  T was really interested in the trumpet.

013

This isn’t the best picture of T playing the trumpet, but he had lots of fun with it.  When you blow into the trumpet, the tissue will “buzz” like a kazoo.

073

This is the finished trumpet.

031

The last project is the “rhythm game”.  Koala Crate included a quiro and stick and rhythm sheets.

017

There were several different rhythm sheets for your child to follow.  T is very independent and didn’t want to follow the cards, so we made our own music together.

029

These are all the supplies included in the box.

070

These are all three completed projects!

Final Thought: This box was really fun.  T loves music, so this was a perfect for him.  I really liked that Koala Crate included a real musical instrument.  I liked that Koala Crate made the projects easy to do and perfect for a 3-year-old.  If you want to try Koala Crate, click here and use the code SHARE10 to save $10.00 on your first box.  This code will also work for Kiwi Crate, Tinker Crate and Doodle Crate.
