Kiwi Crate ships in a little green box that looks like a crate.
There are two main crafts in each box. This month’s theme is “Lemonade Stand”. The two main crafts in this box is My Shop Sign and My Cash Register.
The back of the information card features Steve the Kiwi bird with a friend. Your child can cut out the characters and play with them. When you sign up, your child with get a poster to put your monthly stickers on. A sticker is included in each box to put on your poster.
Explore Magazine is a little publication that is filled with activities, cartoons, games and more. This month’s issue contains a project to make invisible ink, and recipes to make lemonade and lemon bars.
The first activity in the box was “My Cash Register”. This rated low on the messiness scale and low on the parental involvement. Kids will learn fine motor skills, discovering and communicating skills.
Kiwi Crate always includes full color pictures of everything you need for the project.
The instructions were really easy for my 6 year old to follow. He was able to do this project with no help from me.
Everything was included in the box for the project. There was play money, a real working calculator and all the pieces for the register.
The register is was super cute and really easy to put together.
The calculate makes the register really realistic.
This is the finished register, complete with play money and a credit card.
The second featured project was “My Shop Sign”. This project was medium on the messiness scale and low on grownup involvement. Your child will work on developing creating, exploring, and fine motor skills.
For this project, L made a lemon eraser and used the stencils to draw on the chalkboard. L really loved the eraser project, he has loved sewing projects since he was really little.
There was a little chalkboard and easel, along with many other supplies.

Working on the sign.
This is the finished chalkboard and eraser. The box also came with a little box of chalk.
Math Games: There was little booklet full of little math games. Your child can work on sorting, money games and addition games. You child can use the little food cards to pretend to purchase different items.
My husband and son had a great time playing store.
Final Thought: This was a fantastic month, and one of our favorites. My son has been asking when we can set up a lemonade stand. I think I am going to have a yard sale and let L have a little lemonade stand. Kiwi Crate is one of our family’s favorite subscriptions.
