"Austin was so proud of his fire-fly when we were finished....We used the string they came with to make the zip line and Austin thought it was the coolest idea. We attached one end to the door and then raised the line for the fire-fly to go. Then we lowered it to the floor and it came back to us."
I was really surprised, but L was super into this. Like he thought that composing the “music” was like the coolest thing ever. He took selecting the stickers for the music sheet so seriously. And if he got one wrong or out of order when he was playing the song, he started all over. It was so fun to watch.
Our first Kiwi Crate arrived and it was as if the crafting gods had smiled upon us. The box was beautifully packaged. Everything we needed, and I mean everything- down to the tiny scissors, was included. The quality of the materials were amazing. And then this happened: both of my children sat down together, and with minimal help from me, spent the next 2 hours working side by side happily... We were all hooked.
Overall, I love the idea of the crates. The Kiwi Crate subscription costs $19.95 per month. I think that they would make great gifts for children. They are packaged nicely and lots of fun for the kids. The boys probably didn’t even realize that they were learning while they were coloring and playing!
