Kiwi Crate’s boxes look like little wooden crates.
The March 2015 Kiwi Crate was themed “Backyard Adventure”. The two main crafts are “My Growth Chart” and “My Backyard Golf“.
The back of the information card, has Steve the Kiwi bird and a little friend. Your child can cut them out and play out little scenes. The sticker goes on your child’s poster, which comes in the first box.
Explore Magazine is a fun magazine for kids. There are fun activities, cartoons and craft ideas all throughout the magazine.
This is a glimpse inside the magazine. There were several suggested activities to try.
The first activity was “My Backyard Golf”. This craft ranks low on the messiness scale and low on the parental involvement. Your child will work on exploring, creating, and gross motor skills.
Inside the information booklet, there is a list of everything you need for the craft. Kiwi Crate always includes everything you need.
The information book folds out to a full page instruction sheet. There are nice big pictures, so even kids who don’t read, can understand what to do.
This is everything for the craft.
I didn’t take pictures of the process, but this is the finished project. I love the cute little golf club. L made a butterfly and a bunch of snakes to decorate the arches.
L had a great time playing.
The second product was “My Growth Chart”. This project ranked low on the messiness scale and medium on the grownup involvement. You child will work on creating, discovering and fine motor skills.
Once again, the instructions were easy to follow.
The growth chart is over 4 ft long, there were sheets of leaf stickers, a clear plastic sheet (to make imprints) and crayons.
This is the growth chart.
You put the sheet of stickers on the plastic tray, and when you color, it makes the veins for the leaves.
The completed leaves.
This is the completed growth chart. It was hard to get a really good picture of it, because it is so large.
My tall boy.
Here is a better picture of the growth chart.
Final Thought: I loved the theme this month. The growth chart was not only cute, but it will be something I will keep forever. I have never done a growth chart with my boys, but now I will have something to document their growth. Kiwi Crate never disappoints me and they have great customer service.
