Kiwi Crate were nice enough to send one of their products over for Violet to try out, and it was a definite hit! Kiwi Crate is a monthly subscription service, targeted at kids ages 3-7. They deliver a box to your child each month that’s designed around a certain theme (think Dinosaurs, Garden, Superheroes, Space.) In each box are 2-3 fun projects, which cover a range of developmental areas and subjects, including art, science, and imaginative play. The subscription is $19.95 a month with free shipping. I wasn't sure how Violet would do with it since she's only two-and-a-half, but she absolutely loved it!
We tried out the Antarctic Adventure box, which came with a penguin bowling game, ice experiments, and Aurora Postcards. Violet was completely in love with the penguins and the new art supplies. We've used tempera paint and crayons a lot, but the oil pastels and watercolors were new to her so she was seriously enthralled. She loved that the penguins had two families - a mommy, daddy, and baby in each. She went to town with the markers first, followed by the stickers, and finally the pastels and watercolors. I was allowed to help with one of the daddy penguins :)
I was thrilled with how into the penguin decorating she was, but wasn't sure how the bowling part would go. Would she be upset about knocking down her new friends? And would she even be able to do it? Well apparently that was the best part! We set them up horizontally so it was a little harder for her to miss and she knocked one down on the first try! She loved running back and forth to get the ball and trying to knock all of the penguins over. We bowled four or five rounds before she tired of it, which is seriously a LOT for a two-and-a-half year old! Not many things hold her attention for as long as the Kiwi Crate did. It filled pretty much our entire morning. I would definitely recommend this, and by the look on Violet's face in the last photo you can probably guess that she would too! Thanks Kiwi Crate!
Happy Friday everyone! xo, Lauren
