Kiwi Crate – Kid crafting activity!
I love surprises! And what is cooler than a company that sends out a different crafty kit out each month for kids to use. And — shhhhh, don’t tell your kids, but the activities actually teach them too!!
We had a great time testing out Kiwi Crate.
They sent us their Colorful Inspiration Kit. There were three fun crafts/activities inside. And the company says that the target audience is 3-7, but I have to tell you that my teenagers loved getting involved in these activities too. And I love that all of the materials and inspiration are included in each crate.
It was such a fun way to spend a hot summer afternoon!
The first thing we made was Stained Glass pictures made out of little squares of tissue paper and colored film. It was so cool to see what each child did to make their creation. Ella made her own stained glass flower garden!
Hayley and her friend made a stained glass picture AND a tissue paper dyed bag. Such a cool project!
And along the way the little kids learned about color combinations and had a great time spinning the tops and making new top designs.
All in all, it was a delightful afternoon. I was really impressed with Kiwi Crate. I think it’s a great idea and it stimulates kids’ creativity PLUS teaches them new skills and ideas.the monthly subscription is $19.95 with free shipping and includes 2-3 crafts, around a fun theme each month like Dinosaurs, Space, Colors, etc.
And kids love getting mail — Kiwi Crate would make an awesome gift! You can choose from 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions. Or there are also special birthday-themed crates in Super Hero and Princess themes and smaller party-favor sized crates — so fun!! And shipping is free.
And I am SO excited to let you know that Kiwi Crate is giving TT&J readers a SUPER deal. 25% off your first month.
Just type in TTJ25 at checkout to get the savings. Thanks Kiwi Crate!!

What a fabulous idea! My girls would absolutely adore this. Thanks for sharing!
We’ve been getting kiwi crate for about 4 months now. My 3 year old gets so excited when the green box arrives in the mail. “Is that for me!?” They are only 2-3 projects but some supplies can be used over and over. The last box had 3 small paint bottles and preshaped sponges.
